We had a nice meal on the rooftop with a lovely view. The ceviche was excellent. The other dishes (empanadas, pulled pork, enchiladas) were okay. They close off the best seating for 'VIPs", folks coming in as part of guided tours.

Read about Tantalo here on TA and stopped by without a reservation. We were able to get a table in the bar but not the restaurant. The food is delicious and the service was great. A really enjoyable evening.
