    Overpriced and just ok. Short wine list with very overpriced mediocre wine. Food was just ok. $150 US for 4 drinks and three appetizers. So many better options in PV, sorry we wasted a night here.

    My boyfriend and I came here one night for the prixe-fixe tasting menu. He did the non-vegetarian one and I did the vegetarian one. Off the top, why are there fewer items on the vegetarian one? The cocktails were good. The ambiance is nice - it's very quiet - it was also not very crowded. The service was good as well! Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, just wish there were more vegetarian options.

    Our experience was mixed. The food was above average and the service well meaning. Unfortunately, for a higher priced restaurant some things didn’t work well. A delay in orders and large celebratory groups that impacted seating made it a less than pleasurable experience.

    The dinner was the best we’ve had in PV—and I’ve been coming since I was 14. The server team was incredibly knowledgeable about the food and product. There was one server in particular who went above and beyond to talk to us about the wine pairings (all Mexican wines from Valle de Guadalupe and Valle de Santo Tomás). Despite the rush and hard push the service team had to give, the meal was superb and we can’t wait to go back. 10-course tasting menu. 3.5hrs.

    Fabulous food with wonderful flavors and textures. The cocktails are delicious, interesting, and fresh. We were made to feel very special as we celebrated our anniversary (they played an Elvis song for us). The dinner was perfect!

    Wonderful experience and we love the innovative chef’s tasting menu, paired with wines. Excellent service, good vibes, and really wish that pumpkin pie is what we had in the US!

    Pros: we loved the friendly servers and comfortable chairs/back dining room as well as most of the drinks. Cons: food was underwhelming unfortunately, some dishes were over or underseasoned and while the dishes were beautifully presented, the flavors and creativity were lacking for what one would expect for a very expensive tasting menu
