They have "smoothies" - or what we call frozen margaritas, or margaritas on the rocks in every imaginable flavor. They are amazing and fresh - definitely refreshing. They have outside seating which is fun on a nice day, good people watching. I had the ceviche which was fresh and light, excellent. If you eat inside it is a little dark... More

The food is pretty decent, and the prices are decent. The place has indoor and outdoor seating. But this trip the service was pretty horrendous! We had to wait and ask for everything Food took forever, and waiter kept ignoring tables, ours included, couldn't get water, couldn't get drinks. Even when we complained to the management staff, he still couldn't... More

Very attractive restaurant, spacious with great window views of Bleecker Street in the village. I chose the vegetarian omelette which I really enjoyed. My margarita was good also. The brunch comes with two drinks. The waiter was nice, helpful and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone who likes Mexican food. I will definitely go back here.

This place has excellent drinks so with that being said once you get past the drunks at the bar you head to the small set of stairs and you are in the dining area. It's cute not too loud the service is a little slow but noting to really complain about. Now for the food...it's a little under seasoned. If... More

First visit to NYC and ended up in Greenwich village one evening just mooching about. When hunger struck we headed in and sat down with 2 lovely mojitos, the menu is extensive and choosing just one dish was hard. The food came quick and was delicious and the staff were very attentive too, price wise it seemed a tad expensive... More

Friends who live on Perry Street introduced us to this restaurant many years ago and it is still as good as it we remembered. Fun people-watching while enjoying a tasty meal. The seasonal roasted squash tacos with Brussell's sprouts was delicious.

One restaurant bar pretty interesting in New York City. There's a full bar with everything you might want to drink. A must get the house margarita or mojito. A plus if you get the large one you can take the cup home.🍷🍷🍷🍷😁😁

While walking around in the city, my boyfriend decided to make a pitstop at Caliente Cab - a place he use to visit a long time ago, and remembered how good the food and drinks were. Well....he wasn't wrong. The place is so nicely decorated - gorgeous wood tables and chairs and the bar itself has gorgeous wood. We had... More

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
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 stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
