After several years of having this restaurant on our list, we finally got to have dinner there. There were no tables occupied - that's one of the reasons that kept us from trying it. All the food is cooked on a flat surface grill. DW had seasoned shrimp (7 shrimp) & chose Plantains & vegetarian fried rice; I had the tenderloin & shrimp (tenderloin was sliced into pieces & there were 4 shrimp) - I chose fried rice and grilled potatoes for sides. We thought the food was good, but some of it was a bit salty. Bottled wine prices looked high compared to the glasses of wine - they only listed Portillo bottles for $48, while a glass was $8. So we ordered 2 glasses of Pinot Noir, but waiter said they had Malbec by the glass - wine wasn't that good. DW ordered a Aruba Ariba after having that wine. I don't think we'll go back. Inside of the place only has 2 small tables; although outside tables are much nicer, the cars continually driving by detract from the dining experience.

Food for thought: People object more violently to furs than leather because it is safer to attack rich women than motorcycle gangs.
