    What a wonderful experience. the food and service are both excellent. the Plantain Carpaccio is creative and delicious. The Octopus a must. We also enjoyed the Cazuela with Coconut Rice. We drove over 200 miles to go to this restaurant, and we plan to to it again. Gina, our server deserves a special mention, she made our evening very special.

    We had a great dinner last night. It was my birthday and I was looking forward to the duck only to find it wasn't on the menu right now. Instead, I had the seafood. cazuela and it didn't disappoint. The seafood was cooked perfectly and the sauce was amazing. My husband had the rack of lamb and it too was great. The plantain appetizer was also delicious. Our only complaint was that the entrees came out warm, not hot, but rather than send them back we enjoyed them as they were. We shall return when they're not out of duck..bad luck.

    Table was ready upon arrival. Appetizers were great and plentiful. Main courses were presented in order of which they were taken. No "Who had the ???" questions. Worth the time and money. We will go back.

    Food and service could not have been better. Guaranteed to have HOT food. Can get a little noisy but I believe that is due to the setup and cannot be helped.

    The meat was dry and didn’t have any flavor. I actually was sick for several hours after. The restaurant is in the hotel. Maybe if we ordered differently, we would feel differently.

    The restaurant is located inside of a hotel which would usually not be a great indication of the quality of a place. Very nice and casual place. Open kitchen as you enter where you can watch the chefs at work. The owner is on the floor and personally serving and talking to the patrons. It was very apparent that most of the patrons have been there before and all knew him by name. The menu was just right. Not too extensive and all creative dishes. The food itself was beyond amazing. Every single item served was done to perfection. And the prices less than one would expect for such quality. I highly recommend trying it.
