We went on a Friday night and it was crowded and loud. We were seated immediately and chose a table away from the band so that we could still hear the live music without it being too noisy. We enjoyed the Sangria and Pisco Sour (both free with a Foursquare check-in!). We ordered the Corvina a la Perricholi and Corvina rellena de langostinos. Both dishes were very tasty.

Bottom line: good food, good service, good prices. Recommended.

I give it 4 stars out of 5.
