Crazy good quality original cuisine in a warm west village cozy atmosphere. The Jazz on Friday and Saturday make for both a upbeat and romantic scene. Really attentive service and a no rush pace. Reservations are a good idea and have a "gria" for me!

Really enjoyed this place, even though i have no idea what Cuban food should taste like to give it the “authentic” thumbs up. What does it matter though? Our food was DELICIOUS, our waiter so natural and fun and the atmosphere lively. Prices good too....More

We decided to try this restaurant because it wasn't far from where we were staying. We had an enjoyable meal and some cocktails, but Saul's performance (singing and guitar) really made our night!

A small room shouldn't have an highly-amplified singer/guitarist. I complained to the manager but he just shrugged.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
