I loved the food. There are some unusual menu choices, but all are wonderful. I had the venison soup and suckling pig (pulled pork) The staff are welcoming and helpful and can happily recommend this well established restaurant.

The service is fast and extremely polite. The taste is superb The prices are average but trust me that is cheap compared to the level of service, the place, the cleaness and the taste. Dont miss the opportunity to come with friends or family

I tasted several items on the menu including sopa de lima, enchiladas in pumpkin seed sauce, and ensalada de palmitos. None were great. And the price would cause one to expect a better dish. I wouldn't come back.

The food was average and really expensive. The service is good. The dish "salpicon de venado" (like a salmagundi of deer) was full of coriander killing any flavour from the deer meat.
