Lovely, relaxing garden view venue...LOVE the tapas. Sometimes the service is a little slow, but I believe that the food is worth the wait.

My experience is close to what many others have reviewed recently. First, you walk into a beautiful courtyard with large trees and big art work everywhere. The food was pretty good. We had the tapas special. All the food was very good, not mind blowing....More

I'm not sure. But the tapas meal (10 or 12 dishes) is all of 180 pesos, and wine 50 or less. Pay with pesos, better for all. Best value in town.
