This place was simply outstanding. It looks like a crowded little dive at first, then the food arrives and blows your mind. One dish was better than the next. So much more than expected! Interesting combinations, great flavor! A can’t miss!

We had dinner here and found it interesting. The service was good and the ambiance was quirky (in a good way). The food was tasty but seemed confused. The guacamole was good, but the plantains that accompanied it were a bit dry and chewy. The...More
