A lack of sufficient staff means service is at a minimum. The waiter taking our order was in such a hurry I'm surprised he didn't pull the menu out of my wife's hands while she was deciding on her main course. The salad I ordered...More

We had an excellent dinner. I had enchiladas in salsa verde and my husband chili relleno - both were excellent. The service is very attentive which might make one feel rushed, as another reviewer suggested. But, we did not think anyone was intentionally rushing us....More

La Latina
La Latina is a charming neighbourhood with two unique
personalities. At first glance, it’s distinctly
old-world, with narrow streets weaving a maze among
charming stone buildings in sunny, bright colors like
yellow and pink. The other side of La Latina is
characterized by a young population and a bohemian
vibe, as evidenced by a dynamic and evolving selection
of new bars, shops, coworking spaces, and other
