“Although it's pricey (like, North American prices) the food is really good and the drinks as well. Great ambience, good music and they have an indoor area if you prefer the AC. It's usually busy so for Friday and Saturday nights I would recommend making a reservation. The great thing is that if it's busy or you have to wait too long for a table there are 2 other good options right there: PuddleFish Brewery and Juanita's.”
