Restaurant is gorgeous inside. Food was very good too. Was not impressed with the Flamenco show. Wish we had saved the money and just sat in the regular restaurant to eat. Would definitely recommend the restaurant, just not the show.

We love this restaurant. Unfortunately the last few times we've been there we have left a little disappointed. The service was fine, but the food has not on been on par. Has something changed? If so, please change it back.
