Fodor's Review

This place became famous when it was run by founder Maria Barrutia, and on and off it was a popular destination for local foodies over the years. Many people held their breath when she sold the place to Guido Tassi, but we can all breathe a sigh of relief because the cooking is better than ever. The menu is more creative, with bolder flavors and more beautiful presentations. Likewise, the service has been stepped up a notch, as has the wine list. There's now nowhere better in the neighborhood for lunch, nor for dinner on the two nights a week it's open late. The star of the lineup is the roasted, stuffed whole quail, but there's not a misstep on the menu.

Restó Review

A short menu , meaning everything fresh and made to order. I had a lovely appetizer , artichoke hearts, butter lettuce and pecan nuts with a great dressing ,and for main dish , abadejo, a white fish done to perfection with a sauce based in a light cheese or sour cream, side dish esparragos and bacon. The dessert was a light curd with caramel and fresh cherries. They offer an ample choice of wines and beers. Lunch came up to aprox. 24 dollars

per person.I love this place have been there several times and never been disappointed.
