I have to say, the menu is a tad confusing, looking a bit like a kid’s art project or something. I simply had the ceviche (without the bluerries) and the duck empanades. The ceviche was good, but they could back off on the jalepenos, which...More

My meal was specified as a salad special. It was tasty, but a little to spicy for me. I am still a little hungry too. The salsa appetizer wasn't my favorite either. I don't eat sweets, so that's probably why I'm still hungry. The rest...More
