The ropa vieja is to die for! Loved every bit of my meal. We always eat here when we're in town! It's a block from the beach and the atmosphere is lively. We prefer to sit outside, especially in the evening. One of my favorite...More

This place is great. A ton of locals post up at the bar and chit chat with the bartenders.. will and Angie, both fun and efficient. There's a beach vibe, but also a slightly more sophisticated feel than that of the whaler next door. Food...More

We searched internet and took a leap of faith and it paid off! Had lunch brunch time. Child platter hardy and servings overall were ample and pleasing. Flavors reminded of home Miami Cuban Food. My dish strayed from the Cuban staples but echoed and reminded...More

The plantain chips with tamarind sauce, served as an appetizer, were my favorite part of the meal. I had the flavorful pork with a side of plantains. Delicious. Great place to people watch and close to the beach.

Potentially a great place to eat, although the food wasn't in any way above ordinary. It was tasty, it was what was promised on the menu, but still just managed to be ok without being special or memorable. You'd probably dine here more for the...More

This is a popular restaurant and has good food. We did not have to wait too long to get in though. Prices were not crazy high. The truffle fries were very good as was the burger and the bean soup.Wait staff was friendly and efficient.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
