    We enjoyed a delicious celebratory (our daughter’s birthday and graduate school graduation) meal! Every appetizer and meal was perfectly prepared. We’ll be returning soon!

    The food is absolutely wonderful. You don’t even need to understand the ingredients or say the name correctly, everything is perfection. Staff warm and helpful. Nice to have a restaurant that is not just run of the mill same old food.

    The overall experience was great. I had the tuna dish and it was excellent. The others dining with me were not as happy with their meal. My husband had a rice dish with seafood except there was harly any seafood in the dish. The dish was to contain shrimp, octopus and squid but maybe only 4 small pieces of each type of seafood. Our server, Mateo, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the dishes. The happy hour, on a Saturday, was a special surprise. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
