Yes, spoiled Americans do like a break from unfamiliar food once in awhile while enjoying new sites and sounds. Even at this familiar American icon however, you still need to ask for your bill.

I was surprised of the quality and service. Food was good and I thought several times we were back in the USA.

This TGIF has the best service among the rest of the locations in the Country. The beer is always cold and the food always arrives at a proper temperature. Great service from Marlon at the bar and Melvin in the tables. If you can, ask for them.

It's a regular TGI FRIDAY with the same menu and the same taste in the upper side, in the lower side the waiting time is too much, I would recommend Leños y carbon wish is 200 meters away walking distance.

Another exciting Friday's restaurant, where you know what you would eat, and even the flavour. If you do not want to try local food, go to Friday's and you will feel at home in America.....

You know what to expect here... very loud and high priced for what it is. Had a meeting there or would have gone elsewhere.

Not the place to go if you are a solo traveller. Made to feel very unwelcome. Not allowed to sit in the restaurant proper even though it was only half full and was offered a seat in a corner by the door or at the bar. Food was fine, standard fare for this American chain restaurant

This TGI Friday's was really good. I mean I've been countless times to the ones in North America, but the service was excellent. We had a party of 6 (3 adults and 3 kids) and were seated right away. The food was a good portion and they had a great selection of beer as well. The ambiance of the place... More
