Although I had a hankering for steak, the descriptions of the many variations of sea bass got my mouth watering. Dinners come out in piping hot oven dishes with bubbling sauces. So so good! Didn't get to see a wine list, but the waiter's recommended Malbec was fantastic. Map app had trouble finding the restaurant, but got us close enough... More

The restaurant was recommended by someone who lives in San Jose. perhaps we are very spoiled, as we travel all over the world, but I found the food just OK , nothing special . The shock came, when I was charged $8.50 + taxes and services charges for a glass of Argentinian house wine. But probably was one of the... More

The meals are perfect size and good value. Well done as the meat came as ordered! Rare was rare and medium was... More

While I had the best marinated thin slices of fish with a magnificent sauce, the Rockefeller Oysters (baked oysters cover with parmesan cheese) were terrible. Just rubber kind. Service was outstanding but dishes were overpriced. I have eaten better and at lower cost in Lima, Peru. Difficult to find the location and decoration of the place is poor.

Great dinner option. English menu with English speaking waiters. Seafood Peruvian place. I love seafood and they have mostly seafood dishes. The pescada ceviche was good although I ordered the seafood ceviche. I think the waiter misheard me. Oh well- at least I was charged appropriately. My husband and I ordered the fresh fruit smoothies, papaya and watermelon. Yummy and... More

I ordered the Chaufa of Shrimp and it was delicious. The plate was really big and had to give my boyfriend to finish the rest. If you love seafood rice and shrimp then def try this.
