The good marguerites may distract ones attention from the fact that the fish tacos are nearly devoid of fish...and this was a Friday night. All four of us were disappointed in our main courses but the tres leches ( flan) helped a lot! Definitely worth the 10 minute walk to Perro salida for better food at a better price with... More

Stopped in today for a casual lunch before heading home from our short jaunt to Newport. Surprised by the deliciousness. Duck empanadas, Rangoon with shrimp, four salsas. Delicious!

This place was recommended by the barman at the hotel we were staying, and when we first walked in we were a little unsure about it. However, the service was good and the food excellent. Well worth a visit.

Girlfriend had fish tacos, I ate light and had seared tuna app for my main course with seaweed salad. Both were excellent. Crack fries were so so. I thought they were over cooked and not much flavor, aioli on side was also flavorless. Will still return for tacos and awesome margaritas!

I have to admit, at first when we walked in I was unsure about this place. We were the only ones in there, and at first we were in the back room which was drafty. So we moved to the high top tables. It was loud with music and kitchen noise, but our server was great and service was fine.... More

Small Restaurant right in between Banister's & Bowen's Wharf in Newport, Rhode Island. Absolutely amazing drinks at the bar - so many different options. The food is out of this world. Every single item on the menu is delicious. My absolute favorite restaurant around. Just wish it was bigger and had more seating.

A very young vibe with some loud music playing. The Fish tacos were excellent. Food was very FRESH and tasty. Warning, do not sit by the side exit. Workers will pass in and out none stop to get ingredients and supplies from across the street OR to empty garbage. It is a small place so this area may be difficult... More

This place may be a bit small and cramped but delivers with excellent food and drink! Went here for lunch and was not disappointed - service was excellent and food was great too. Have to say the guacamole was some of the best I have ever had.

The BBQ Korean tacos were stellar, and the atmosphere was awesome for a summer lunch. We loved our server too! She was very good.
