This was worth the visit. I had the snapper. The chicken empanadas seem to be missing some flavor. The snapper was nicely flavored. The tostones was great the garlic sauce was delicious. Not a fan of the mojoto sauce. Overall I would return the food...More

It was Sunday brunch. The food was delicious. If you don't like tight quarters and a lively atmosphere this place will not suit. My friends and I had so much fun. The quantities are just right and the service was very good.

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
