While staying at a nearby lodge during a relative's hospital stay, we were searching for a good, local eatery. After finding this place on yellowpages.com, we tried it out. We showed up around 5:30 on Friday evening, without calling ahead. They were quick, very friendly and helpful, and not bad price-wise compared to other non-chain taquerias. We ordered tacos and chimichangas, beans, rice, chips, and salsa. All were delicious! We would recommend eating here again, both in house, and takeout (like we did). In fact, we liked it so much last time we were in the neighborhood, we'll be there again tonight, going back for seconds!
I will definitely be back! Casual, charming atmosphere. Friendly staff, prompt service and many wonderful flavors make this a place to revisit again & again...only I would want the Tierra y Mar again...perfect portion of tender coconut prawns & succulent marinated skirt steak....although the plates nearby were just as appealing with heavenly aromas. Ok. I'll try something new next time. I think.
The food at this restaurant is awesome and it even has a cigar lounge in the back for aficionados. It's not your typical Cuban food as it's really a fusion of California and Cuban cuisines. Their desserts are to die for! So is their Cuban coffee. But you have to make reservations in advance.
