It is a great place to spend a nice afternoon with friends. The vibe is super casual, the service and the food is great... Do not miss the chocolate dessert with olive oil and sea salt! Is amazing!

This is a nice little Tapas bar in Polanco - which is a very classy area. The food is great, vast array of drinks at good prices. Loved the cosy environment that came with good service. The menu has seafood, meat and vegiterean dishes alike....More

Poshness defines Polanco, this wealthy neighborhood
retains elegance unmatched elsewhere in Distrito
Federal. Brunch in the Polanquito area, then keep up
with the latest fashion trends in luxury boutiques
around every corner. Top it off with beautiful cafés
and restaurants that surround Lincoln Park, a treat to
the senses thanks to the art decó architecture and
high quality gourmet cuisine found here.
