Wonderful on-the-beach location in Zona Romantica. The surf and turf combo was huge and nicely fed 2. I had the local fish and city was great. The characters that walk on the sidewalk in front are noteworthy!

Returned a second night for pasta. Wife had eggplant lasagna and I had the red spice and garlic pasta. Both well delicious but, fair warning, the spice is hot. Service was attentive and the soft, live guitar provided the finishing touch to a pleasant evening.
