    Mesas muy pequeñas para cuando se piden varios platos, el olor a comida se percibe desde que uno entra. En general fue una agradable visita. Volveremos.

    La hamburguesa estaba muy cocinada pero el resto de las cosas un éxito. El mejor vino, mejor ambiente y mejores bocas. Lástima que ya no esté la hamburguesa de cordero, era 10/10.

    If a quiet but very nice place is your thing to go out and have drinks and eat good, this is your place in San Jose. They keep it simple but with quality and great service.

    Close to the plants, on the hall, beside the wall, the environment is fresh, a little dark, perfect for a mysterious conversation.
