Lonely Planet review
This ever-popular eatery sees affluent groups of friends and families filling its tables for long leisurely meals. It's very Western, with a menu embracing Tex-Mex, French and Italian (from nachos and fajitas to pastas and veal escalope), good glasses of white wine, and Norah Jones on the stereo. Alcohol is served and credit cards are accepted.
