Notes: This restaurant is a favorite of local expatriates... and it became a favorite almost overnight. The food is delicious... you can have a meal just from appetizers and you won't be unsatisfied. Or you can try the more generous entrees. We enjoyed a yummy beef carpaccio, a chicken and pasta dish and tacos... all different, all really great. Sitting outdoors here is lovely... you are far enough away from the street that you aren't bothered by the noise or exhaust, but you still get to enjoy the outdoor ambiance. Inside, the decor is interesting, with low lighting... but most people seem to prefer to be outdoors. Don't miss going to the bathroom while you are there to see their innovative sink treatment!
