Favorite was the Fried Queso Blanco. The rate AhI Tuna could have used more seasoning. The Sangria was very good! Ambiance was cozy and comfortable.

We visited Masa last Sunday for the brunch fiesta menu which was great value for money. Both courses were great, fresh fruit to start followed by Creamy Scrambled Eggs with Chorizo and Mexican Farmer’s Cheese - accompanied with a Bellini!

Went for brunch, nice place. Good weekend brunch menu, good brunch drink selection. There's something just a LITTLE off about the entire place, but overall no complaints about the food. The service, sadly, was not good.
