Don’t think it twice: Estrecho is your place to go. With only a USD25-35 budget you can have a Grilled Camembert or a Coconut Thai soup as an appetizer + an entrée such as Green Curry or the best Flounder with the best wasabi sauce...More

when we first walked in, we knew it was going to great...at each seat on the diner-like set up were well-dressed locals, chatting and watching food amazement before their eyes. The prep stations, grill, and at the end of the restaurant, the dishwashers--were all in...More

A bustling restaurant on a pedestrian avenue near the old town. Counter service only, but really great to see the busy chefs at work. An English speaking server made it very easy for us. She had both the prawn salad plate and the chicken plate...More

The modern cuisine is very good. I ordered the filet mignon. It was nicely cooked and well seasoned. I don't normally like sweet potato, but they made a nice hash that I enjoyed. The service is nice and friendly.
