Named as one of the best restaurants in San Cristobal. Service is fast. Starters with French fries, BBQ dishes to share and meat soup. Vacío was tender, medium well and tasty. Beef rips were ok. Beer was cold... extra point Good options for wine.

It's a tourist trap serving ok meat but for the price you can do better in Polanco/Mexico City. Wine by the glass stinks. Refused to refund disgusting cheap blue cheese ensalada de la casa. Leave your money elsewhere.
