It's on a corner by the old lighthouse in the Barrio Historio district, the old town. They played music and showed slides bounced of the wall of an adjacent building, they are about 6 young people, I think the chef is from Brazil, they also have woks outside on the terrace for cooking and oranges growing right above you, not quite ready in March 2012. It was not the cheapest place around, cost for two was about US$75, but the ambiance and food was excellent, we listened to and watched Pavrotti!
