My wife and I had a great meal here on Sat night! after an inaspicious start where we were left waiting for 10 minutes without a server coming by, the waiter came buy and apologized. He brought us some drinks out quickly and told us about the specials (they have a lot of them!).

Appetizers - We had the grilled calamari and the Sardines. The calamari were nice, but the sardines - served cold were fantastic. salty and in this great olive oil sauce.

Dinner - We had the whole dorrado with the olive oil/sun dried tomatoes/caper sauce and the grouper. The dorrado was fantastic! Grouper was good.

Desserts - Poached pear in a red wine/cinnamon sauce & leches fritas (like a fried creme brulee). Both were phenomenal.

The atmosphere is like you are in someone's house. romantic.

highly recommended!
