The Best Restaurant in The Tow

Almost 13 years have passed since we opened doors for the first time in our restaurant in the vibrant Portobello area, in addition to remodeling and image changes, challenging us to get out of the comfort zone, training us more every day . It is true that it has not been easy, we have come to feel tired, but as a family (which has grown) we have supported each other , therefore, our north is to be able to transfer these emotions or values, to our #RotanaLovers through our dishes, services, and spaces.

Reminiscing, we see how much we have evolved, and if it is true that it all started with a family, it is incredible to see not only the number of people who have joined, but the QUALITY . I would like to say THANKS to the team for always giving their best, with great LOVE and PERSEVERANCE.
