Outside looked like a night club. Dark and unique inside with good food and drinks. I had tequitos and their their signature pineapple strawberry margarita. Wait staff were really friendly prices were average for the area.

We went to celebrate a friends birthday, and had a fun night. The Margaritas were delicious. The Pina Colada over priced as it comes in a coconut. Should be optional. Everything from guacamole to fajitas to quesadilla were very good with great size portions

We were told about this place by the owner of the local AirBNB place we stayed at in Hollywood. Good job too, as we would never have spotted it otherwise. The place is amazing inside - a real Gothic look to it, quite unlike anywhere...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
