Loved the food and the ambience. The artwork on the walls is weird and interesting. Always great first stop when having a night out. Worth doing regularly!!

This is a fun place...located on "Electric Avenue" where it gets so busy from Thurs-Sun that the crowd spills on to the road. Service is great, crowd is fun & interesting....locals and expats mix well here.

The food is great! The music is loud and thrilling. The mix of people is the best! Try the specialty drinks, they are sure to please.

I always get their chicken and steak fajitas. I can't really say they are the best in town because they are the only fajitas I have had in town. But I have been here at least 5 times. I alternate getting the chicken and the...More

Amazing atmosphere if the weather is good on Thursday nights! Everybody stands outside on the road ... feels like a street festival or so! Inside a bit rustique and crowded. Do it if you happen to be around on a Tursday night and you like...More
