The guacamole here is amazing - ask for it spicy if you like a kick. We also had the chicken enchiladas which were very flavoursome, and the steak tacos, which were good but could have been more vibrant. Great value for money

The restaurant is tiny which is a good thing! Even if you have to wait, this is worth the wait. I ordered the chicken with a mole sauce and it was pretty amazing. The service was great, paced well and friendly staff. Great drinks too.

Muy Bien! Wow delicious. Only 6 tables of 2, and 10 at the bar. A recommend. Great service and staff. The food was authentic and the staff are top notch! Recommended drinks from the bar were all different and good. At the end they brought a shot, on the house. The kids said this was their best restaurant on the whole trip! You would go here again every time I'm in NY! Thanks guys see you on our next visit.
