    The oxtail is falling off the bone. The fish (red snapper) is hanging on the plate. Took mom and dad for anniversary and they had a great time. Worth the wait.

    Sangria and mojitoes are on the menu, but are non-alcoholic. Basically just expensive juice.

    I ordered the Brasil Oxtail and it comes with white rice, black beans and sweet plantains. It was soooooooooooo good. Definitely a 10 on a scale of 1.0 to 10.0.
