If you want to go in a typical Latin American restaurant go to maito the food is delicious specially the fish and it normally always locally fished. Nice and efficient waiters. I highly recommend the place

A good place for business lunch. Attentive staff and well-spaced tables allow for private conversation. Tried the squid ink risotto and found it slightly salty. Am told by locals that the other dishes such as dumpling and chow mein are good. May give this place...More

We were not that hungry to have the tasting menu which perhaps was a better option. The Latin house setup is nice. The food is to me a little over rated, very creative if you are looking for unique ingredients. Was not impressed by the...More

You can dress casually. No bathing attire but probably anything beyond that is fine.

I am not 100% certain, but I believe Maito is closed on Sunday. Things may have changed, so call. I was there on a Monday.
