This place has closed. It has not moved. Unfortunately it is no more, a loss to Olas Altas area. Now there isn't really any good food to be had along that strip by the Sea. Mostly just bars. Sad

If you are looking for soup both the tortilla soup and the chicken consommé are great. The tortilla soup is served with the broth on the side so the tortillas stay crisp. The chicken consommé is chock full of chicken, rice and veggie. Yum.
