Forget the Salsa the Food and Mojitos are the BEST in DC

This place has character and friendly, helpful atagg. Good drinks...you can't go wrong with the margaritas and mojitos. It has a lot going on all week. We look forward to the free dance lessons most days, including salsa, zook, kilimbo, bachata, etc.

Purchased a Groupon and went here for dinner. Great food, very authentic flavors! A bit on the pricey side, but it is near Dupont Circle so that is expected...ceviche was my least favorite of what we ordered, but the skirt steak and the garlic fries were amazing! Keep in mind that it turns into a dance club at 10pm so... More

On Saturday nights you can enjoy a good reasonably priced meal then have a free Latin dance class and then dance the night away to Latin music downstairs. Great fun friendly accommodating service in pleasant surroundings

We went early; 5:30 on a Friday because we had theatre tickets so the restaurant was empty. Strange atmosphere with mannequins, but the service was very good...obviously. The food was delicious. The beef empanadas were the table favorites. The Bolivian chicken stew was wonderfully moist with savory spices. The homemade guac was as good as my homemade. The sangria had... More

For some Latin flavor, this is the place to visit. It's in a really nice place within the more nightlife area of DC. The place is nicely decorated. We came in around 9...free salsa lessons in the lower level. Mango Mojito is good and the SoCo with cranberry was strong. Been here a few minutes... Nice vibe.
