The DJ at the bar was playing a great mix of Stevie Wonder, and all the classics. The food was delicious, so many flavours!! The churros are sooo good! The staff were so lovely and overall we had a great evening. Would highly recommend

                                                              When we got to the restaurant, the temperature was very high, I asked several times if they could regulate the temperature since the place was very hot and after 20-30 minutes they did it. We ordered Starters, main course, dessert, and a bottle of wine. The waiter took too long to serve the wine, I needed to ask for the bottle of wine 3 times. We ordered food and the waiter asked me how would I like my meat, I said medium well, but he never asked my wife. When the dishes arrived, my meat was red and my wife's was the same, we asked to cook more it and we could see the annoyance of the waiter and him cook at our request. The desserts left much to be desired, the pastes 3 leches were not milked at all, it was a tiny piece of cake with ice cream and a little caramel. We still hadn't finished eating when the bill came, I think it is very rude to do that and it speaks of a service that leaves much to be desired.

The food was interesting and delicious, very well thought out. All three courses were lovely. The cocktails were yummy even the alcohol free ones my daughter ordered. Most importantly the staff were absolutely brilliant, such genuinely nice people this really added to our experience and all in all my daughter had a really memorable birthday dinner.

It dropped the star just because it took a little longer than expected between ordering and receiving our food. The food, service and staff were excellent. Looking forward to going there again post Covid restrictions.

I’m Peruvian so take it from me - I’ll most definitely be back once traveling restrictions resume to try their Pollo a la Brasa and Anticuchos. Their Ceviche is pretty good and also enjoyed their Pisco Sour!

                                                              The place is beautiful. We were surprised that the small plates were really small but the Gnocchi de Patatas were really good.

                                                              Delighted with this fabulous new restaurant. We were concerned it might be a little rough and ready/BBQ meat-fest but was pleasantly surprised that everything was so beautifully presented and really delicious. Portions were generous but not overwhelming. Staff were wonderful - efficient, friendly and great fun - the perfect combination! Tables were well-spaced and everything appeared to be fully Covid compliant. Will definitely be returning.
