The food is so good and the atmosphere is charming. This is where we like to go for our special events. Steak au poivre is to die for as well as the pollo copa cabana.

A tiny little restaurant where the food will wow you. The service is great, the food is awesome and they will send you away full. This is a local favorite so make reservations are you will have a long wait.
