Hosted a business meeting here this week, as my main contact lives in downtown Campbell area. He had walked by this place many times while looking for something to eat in downtown Campbell. He was very happy that we chose this place to meet. The ambience, the service, the food, the value for what you got was all excellent. I can’t speak for the other folks in the meeting, but I had the Carne Asada platter, it was amazing, cooked to perfection tasted amazing. I didn’t sample any of the cocktails or other drinks, just had a beer. It was quite good.
