The service was very attentive and pleasant, the best part of the experience. The decor of the restaurant was better in front , but we were directed to the back, as the staff said that then we would be less disturbed by the large groups that they were expecting. Unfortunately the back of the restaurant was not very impressive. The menu looked interesting, but the tastes were not quite to my liking. The sea urchin and the tartar de gambon and gamaron tasted very similar to me and it was too much of the same thing. It might have been just my bad choices :) When the waitress noticed that I had only tasted my tartar and had left most of it on my plate, then she very kindly offered to get me something else, but I wasn't that hungry. The lamb that my husband had, was good.

Wonderful service. Wine list is varied and very very reasonably priced. The food is excellent. Clearly fusion and modern, nicely plated with care. Mixed crowd. Seems like a good meeting place for millennials as well reflecting the menu. But as one reviewer put it, this is a gem.

Go now. This was the best meal of our two week trip, and we went to some fantastic restaurants. The restaurant is beautiful and they make you feel at home as soon as you walk in. The service is friendly, attentive, and passionate. And the food is sublime. Freshest ingredients, incredible flavor combinations. The seafood tasted like they had just been caught. From the scallop in ahí pepper/yuzu sauce, to the baked uní (what did they do to make this?), to the shrimp/prawn ceviche in ultra-reduced bouillabaisse sauce. Or the incredible beef croquettes or souls vise Lam shanks that were perfect. This restaurant isn’t on everyone’s must do list yet, but it will be soon. It should be on yours.

Really lovely service and the food was excellent. Unfortunately we did not have time for dessert but we were given a chocolate liqueur as we left. Lovely touch.

Really outstanding food. Bad luck that we visited at the same time as a group of about 50 merry, noisy, and later tipsy young people. As much as we appreciated the design of the restaurant, friendly and knowledgeable service, and delicious food, in the end we were happy to pay and leave. If you manage to avoid the noisy group, you'll be in for a real treat.

The food was delicious, the staff members were very nice, friendly and courteous.
We are vegetarians and the staff made sure to check our dietary restrictions.
The food was very good quality and the prices were very decent. Extremely recommended for people who are looking for something different than all the touristic restaurants. Great experience overall.

We highly recommend this restaurant!
