    The food, as always, was amazing. The service though, was mediocre. Our server was lovely but having to ask for water, cutlery, napkins …that’s not up to par. I found it very hard to hear as well - inside. I’m not sure why that is because most people were outside. But it made it hard to enjoy our experience. Having said that - the food is so good, plentiful and the setting is gorgeous.

    The waitress found a perfect spot for 3 senior gals reconnecting. She sat us in a less noisy area and had comfortable padded seats. Always love the classic margarita and the prawn quesadilla…great salad.

    The service was very good...quick delivery of food to the table once ordered. The food for dinner was also very tasty. A little too tart on the palate for one diner was the ceviche. It was a lot of lime juice. Chorros were a little hard. The issue was the level of noise in the entire room. It was so loud in there, like a gymnasium. After 2.5 hours for dinner with my friend, I could not wait to get out as my ears were tired. Nice spot and obviously great hires of local young workers which is so important. A nod of appreciation as we left would have been nice but after a long night at that 'energetic' noise level, I am sure that it affects even the staff. Overall good though.
