An interesting blend of tradition and modernity. Cool twists on traditional dishes, great tapas/antipasto, funky homemade ice cream flavors. A little pricier than some places, but creative and delicious. Located near the main plaza.More

Alex, the owner/chef, is a talented man, to say the least. Besides his (in many cases quite stunning) artwork that fills the walls of the restaurant and his collection of novels, one wonders where this man finds the time to run such a phenomenal restaurant!...More
