We just had dinner at this place and the place was awesome food was plentiful and well prepared and they were freindly and talkative. It is down a poorly lit street, but, once you walk the short block you will be happy with the choice.

The restaurant isn't very big but the staff is very friendly, the food is very good and it's just a half block off of the costera so it's very safe.

The waiters who are now also the owners really make this place fun. The food is quite tasty.... if you like spicy, try the tortilla soup. The complementary spiced veggies placed on the tables for appetizers are also a plus.

Returned and found that Gustavo & Ruffino had taken over the restaurant. The red snapper was excellent as were the chili relanos. Loved the coconut ice cream. With the departure of the previous owner it is obvious that the location is much cleaner.
