All-time favorite place to eat… in the whole wide world! I used to go EVERY Tuesday because on Tuesdays from 6-8PM they have half-priced tapas. Main favorite tapas: guacamole and chips, coconut shrimp, BBQ ribs, and platano relleno. The drinks are amazing too. I get the passion fruit mojito and sangria. During the hot months, they spread some tables and chairs outside and you can get to enjoy the sun while enjoying some amazing food.
My friend picked this spot for her birthday dinner and first thing I love about it is that it's very easy to find.
Upon entering, we were greeted and seated very quickly. My two friends ordered red sangria and I had to order a "NOJITO" ( which was very good I might add) because I can't hang.
We preceded to order beef tacos and shrimp quesadilla for appetizers. They both were simply delicious, you can control how you want your beef cooked if you order the beef taco and the guacamole that came with the shrimp quesadilla had a bit of a spicy kick that adds to the food.
The main entree was this meat platter for 2, came with ribs, chicken, sausage and skirt steak. As well as a bed of spinach, yuca fries ( THEY WERE REALLY GOOD) and rice / beans.
The shrimp salad was also interesting, it had a vinaigrette that had coconut in it.
Over all, take your friends here and order the entire menu.
