    Share a Guacamole de Chicharrón,ñ. The Tortilla soup is excellent. The Mexican Style Filet Mignon ( off the menu items) its also tasty, but should be renamed bcz its not a FM.

    The cocktails blew my mind (mojitos and G&Ts), the starter (octopus carpaccio) was delicious, the main course was perfectly cooked, finally the desert was truly out of this world! You must visit!

    Definitely one of the best places to eat or even have a beer in the centro historico. The view is amazing and staff is friendly. The buffet looks good too.

    The view is amazing, but the platos fuertes are so small and expensive !! Go there to see the view and grab a drink. Have lunch in another place

    Great view! Unfortunately, Sunday brunch is average for the price you pay. Service was friendly but distracted and slow. We had to ask several times for we had ordered.
