My friend and I went to this restaurant twice during our recent visit because we could not make up our minds what we wanted to eat the first time we went. The fettucine was incredible and we HAD to return to try the lobster ravioli! Yummo! for both dishes! Great service! Great Mojitos!

We waited an hour for the main course. The service manager asked if we were happy. We said no, we were still waiting for our main course.

We had a farewell dinner here with friends, always a fantastic place to meet and enjoy a great meal and a fantastic view of la plaza. Never disappointed at this restaurant at the heart of La Zona Colonial.

The location and atmosphere are in themselves worth the visit, but when you add the food and service this becomes above and beyond. Sitting outside overlooking the old town terrace and having live music, the light breeze and just all around atmosphere make this a rarity. Service was well paced and attentive. Food was served as expected and was very... More

It´s one of those rare cases of a restaurant aimed at tourists but we locals love it as well. The location is by far one of the best in the Old City. You have a perfect front view of the Alcazar de Colón, one of the most iconic Colonial buildings in town. Make sure to make a reservation in advance... More

We had read about this place from cruise ships crews and other sources and it was indeed very nice. Just a perfect spot for checking out people and enjoying a cold beer. We had samosas, tuna tartar and the goat with risotto and the food was very nice. Service was impeccable. Go there and enjoy!

The food and staff were amazing. The Yucca Gnocchi were very tasty and had a different textures than normal Gnocchi. The dessert was interesting, it was a platter and it had a cold shot of mama Juana, once again, interesting, different and playful. The view is beautiful during the night.
