    The food is amazing!!! Warm spinach salad and the shrimp are a mustbhave! And if you're at the bar ask for Jessie he makes the BEST mojitos ever!

    Get the Cajun shrimp w the extra sauce! They give you bottomless bread... so you can dip the bread in the sauce and continue enjoying the delicious flavor!

    When your here get the Cajun Shrimp with a side of bread to dip it in the sauce. Also remember to ask for the White Sangria, it has a different taste.

    Diet Tip - Get the Arroz con Pollo. Ask for just white meat (They will separate the dark from the white meat for you) AND WATCH THE CARB INTAKE!! Visit me on

    MUST GET THE CAJUN SHRIMP! Wings and calamari are just okay. Sangria doesn't taste good but it is STRONG.

    Three things you must try: the New Potatos, the Cajun Shrimp, and the plaintains. They also have a Haight Street location -- right by the park. Read more

    Get the Sangria. Potatoes, shrimp, and mushrooms. Use the bread to soak up the sauce from the shrimp. Fun place and great food.
  • Catina C.
    Sangria was awesome! Oxtails and shrimp were good as well. Try the shrimp sauce with some bread. Yummy!!

    Tapas are good as usual. White washed tho. Not like Haight St. Where it's more of a Cuban vibe, like it's suppose to be!!

    The burger is expensive and not that great. Get the calamari as an appetizer and some of the best sangria.

    Pork Chimichangas special was good, as were the Fried Platanos (Plantains). Jerk Chicken was very boring - the jerk sauce had no spice and really no flavor at all, but the chicken was cooked perfectly

    Make sure to say hello to Vegas. He's an excellent bartender and if you're nice enough, you may get a couple of shots out of it.

    the service isn't amazing, but should you go here, i recommend the fried platanos w/ black beans & sour cream. sounds strange, but sooo yummy.

    The paella here is terrible and the burger was even a big fat fail. Service (like others have said) is bad here too. Applebees grade food at San Francisco prices. Worst food in the Mission ever!

    Ok the booze is decent but the bread they served was cold. The other dishes were so-so. Basically you come here to drink and the food just helps soak up the alcohol. Nothing more.

    Food was mediocre but the service at the bar was utterly RUDE! I mean capital RUDE. The aged Asian bartender lady literally said, "You guys are getting on my nerves." Big parties = rude service.
