All was great! After dinner I suggest to have a good wine of whiskey and enjoy the view of the city- it becomes just perfect, tranquility is another of the characteristic I enjoyed here. Will come again? Yes, I will do it many times even alone if possible, it makes me analyze wonders of life.

I think that the meat is delicious because they don't cook it with too much condiment, just salt. And the best thing is that the food is... More

The reasons I rated 5 is because of: 1) Great food, amazing salmon with really good flan dessert. 2) BEST view, at night you can see the whole city light up from an unbeatable location in between the clouds (literally) 3) Amazing service, Johana was happy to teach me about some interesting artifacts in the main hall. Always smiling, knowledgeable... More

Although my visit was as a group (12), I was dissappointed with their meat. Main reason was gettin an overcooked tenderloin even when I specifically asked for it medium rare! If you are a steakhouse you're supposed to be experts at cooking the right term on meat. Service was good and very attentive, but couldn't make up for a piece... More
