Great lunch spot – everything is great – you can’t go wrong. Take the extra time and walk to 34th – you’ll be rewarded with a great experience (5 stars). The new location (between 1st and 5th on Constituyentes) caters to the tourist crowd, service tneds to be poor, and some dishes aren’t up to par (2 1/2 stars).
Our go to spot when taking visitors for lunch. Everything is tasty and fresh and so nicely presented. My favorite are the shrimp ceviche tostadas. Well worth taking a walk to 34th. I believe they opened another location on Constituyentes between 1st and 5th. More convenient for some folks to be sure.
