The kids menu is very friendly with high-quality platos para niños, but the menu has wonderful meat-centric dishes for us adults. My steak and my wife's burger were both amazingly-prepared and presented. The portions are American-sized. The staff was helpful without being intrusive.

This place offers very well prepared dishes although a bit limited to few options. The good thing is the good taste and seasoning of them. A good choice to have lunch close to downtown.
