    The drinks and food here are amazing!! It can get super crowded and loud, but the atmosphere gives off a lively vibe.

    It's not good. Kind of gross, really. The kind of place you wish you had never stepped in. Go somewhere else.

    Arepas Benedictos was delicious. Grab a window seat for some Tompkins Square people watching too.

    Ended the night at this great spot. The yuca burger with the yuca fries , churasco , and paella were all delicious. The latin music was a perfect touch.

    Great happy hour deals. Tuesdays are half off tapas and the pulpo a la plancha is amazing!

    The Moqueca de Bahia, yeah, get on that. There's scrimps, octopus, and hearts of palm elbowing each other for space in a garlicky, coconut broth. So good.

    The calamari was tender and crisp - but just a little bit salty. Chipotle dipping sauce was smoky and mild.

    Was highly disappointed that with 15 open tables, they wouldn't sit me while waiting for the 2nd person in my party. So I left. But have been here otherwise. Meh, it's okay. Outside seating is nice.

    the tuna ceviche is divine and their yucajito (coconut rum, pineapple juice, and mint) is INCREDIBLE.

    We couldn't order any food until 5:30. The garlic mashed potatoes were peppery and barely edible, while the grilled veggies were delicious. My friend was underwhelmed by his ceviche.

    Mojitos and tapas. 👌 Top quality!
  • Carlos J M.
    Carlos J MartinezMay 27, 2016
    The mojitos are on point.👌 And I strongly recommend ordering the shrimp quesadilla, and if you still have room left in your tummy, try the skirt steak.

    The queso fundido and octopus were both good appetizers, but the carnitas platter for 2 was just a bunch of ok tasting meat. The Yuca Tai cocktail is sweet and delicious!

    Arepa Benedict (with the ham!) is one of the best brunch options near Tompkins Park. Not a bad Bloody Mary either.

    A-MAZE-ING churrasco appetizer and sugar cane capirinha! Dissapointing service by the wait staff. Do NOT order white sangria pitchers, order water-it's cheaper and tastes the same.

    The usual tortillas and empanadas get punched up courtesy of lobster and port wine reductions, and their specialty Yucajito (coconut rum, pineapple juice, and mint) will transport you to the tropics. Read more

    The food was great, but they don't take reservations for parties of 10 or more for some reason that makes no sense. We waited 2 hrs for a table on Friday night. It was still worth the wait!
