Wanted to try different place than the hotel we were staying at for breakfast. Bad choice. We sat ourselves outside with the waitress's knowledge, and waited and waited and waited. My friend had to go inside and ask for service. When they came, we didnt speak spanish and they did not speak or understand english. Staff took our order by... More

I classify this restaurant as Sports Bar kind of food. All ok. Service was ok. Steak was severely undercooked on first pass. Huge screen TV (projected?) for watching sports (mainly soccer).

They offer a nice environment, a little dark, comfortable and modern. The menu has good options and prices are a little high. I ordered a plate with 4 mini burgers that were well presented and were really taste. I pay around 15 US$ for it.

We went there for breakfast. I really liked the outside seating so we stayed outside. That maybe a reason why the service was very poor. We ordered the Americanisimo, consists of eggs, juice, coffee and muffins. No garnish at all, almost like dinner food back in the US. BTW, American coffee means black coffee no milk. Beats me!

It's not the best deal in the world. The food is good, drinks are tasty and the service is great, but the prices are not appropriate. In very few places I have visited, prices are so high in relation to the product.

This is more of a "Fridays" type of US restaurant. The food is a solid "good" and everyone in your party will find something you like. Burgers, quesadillas, chicken, & fish, salads, soups all available. The staff are friendly. We also came for the Sunday brunch buffet which has a big selection for all you can eat for $20 per...

We went to have dinner because it's close to the hotel and Crepes and Waffles was full. Artichoke hearts were good but the onion soup was terrible, it wasn't hot, it was sweet and the cheese was just that a piece of cheese covering the big chunks of onion and the cold sweet soup. I ordered a cold coffee and... More

First off, the food is very good. However, the service is terrible. Wrong orders and extremely slow. Drink prices are outrageous - $18 for a margarita.
