Very young, lounge type atmosphere. The food was good, tasty and copious. Not much of a view (in fact none) from the rooftop terrace but it was nice to have dinner in the open air. Worth it's reputation.

This place was delicious and had a great roof top for dining and drinking. The other guests were as cool as the decor which made for a lively vibe all around. It's a great place to hang and eat with friends!

Ate on the roof! Loved the tacos!!! This restaurant was recommended by our guide. She gave us directions or we wouldn’t have found it!! Climbed up narrow stairs to roof and had amazing experience and meal!

I went with a group of 21 people, and had the opportunity to taste a bunch of different things (soups, empanadas, tacos, tostones) and it was all delicious. Their home-made and quite spicy hot sauce was the best I had in on my trip. Super...More

I noticed that a lot of people make a reservation by stopping by the restaurant and making it for another night. A bit inconvenient if you are not in the area, I would try having your host or hotel contact them when you... More
