Quite upscale in a very attractive dining room. Great drinks and appetizers. Love the empanadas! Toss up between their version of enchiladas, and their grilled meats and fish that are so delicious but pricey. Steak with mole, and Chilean sea add w chimichura are great!

A group of 9 of us had dinner here and everyone was very pleased with their food and their drinks. The restaurant was busy but the service was great. Their menu is varied and margaritas are excellent!

My favorite, although not cheap, on a recent visit was the lamb chops in mole' sauce. Worth the price - marvelous taste! The passion fruit dessert was great! Definitely want to go back!
