I hate writing bad reviews but this place compelled me too - nothing wrong with the service but the food was terrible. Talk about a wanna-be restaurant. The place looked great from the outset, but the phrase "All shirt and no trousers" rings true! I wish I could take back time and save my body from the harm this food has caused. The sauce poured overzealously on the fish was horrible basically half a bottle of soy sauce with added salt and something to thicken it - I'm convinced the chef has no taste because no ones needs that much saltiness on anything! The fish itself dry and certainly overcooked. We all left feeling sick and very upset. Oh btw you will pay through the teeth for this experience - There are a million other places to choose from that will at least leave you more satisfied and not full of bloated disappointment. The one saving grace (average at best) was the Yucca starter. If you want a meal that provides you with nothing but regret, disappointment and shame from your wife for choosing it - Inka is the place to go.
