We really enjoyed our meal here. The vibe is really intimate and the homemade corn tortillas are delicious. There are many gluten free options as well!

Delightful restaurant with good food and enchanting staff. We've been here twice and both times it was a delight being there. One time we choose the 3 course menu and the second time we enjoyed a variation of tapas.
