I've been to several Cuban restaurants in the greater L.A. I have found my new Cuban place to eat. Mercedes' is a wonderful, small, super-clean restaurant hidden on the small end of Washington Blvd. right off the beach. I went with a friend for brunch...More

Good food. Good service. Good bloodys and mimosas. The pork omelet was particularly good. Good eggs Benedict as well. Pricey, but on vacation so not as sensitive to cost. They did add 18% gratuity for the 5 of us. Glad I didn’t accidentally double tip....More

Mercedes proved to be a nice Cuban restaurant at the heart of Venice Beach. The heated patio worked well, and the tastes were delightful.

We have come to Mercedes many times and our favorite is the Joeys healthy cubano. The staff is nice and the place is always clean.

This place is great. A ton of locals post up at the bar and chit chat with the bartenders.. will and Angie, both fun and efficient. There's a beach vibe, but also a slightly more sophisticated feel than that of the whaler next door. Food...More

We searched internet and took a leap of faith and it paid off! Had lunch brunch time. Child platter hardy and servings overall were ample and pleasing. Flavors reminded of home Miami Cuban Food. My dish strayed from the Cuban staples but echoed and reminded...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
