Ideal for sharing dishes with your friends, family or clients. You have to get there early to get a table because it is always packed.

This is a Spanish tasca with a casual atmosphere. Even though the menu is limited and not too sophisticated beef and seafood are good.

I loved this place...you must like garlic though, which I do. Had the huge jumbo shrimps...delicious. We also enjoyed a steak. I am not asure how they tenderize it but I could almost cut it with my fork. Service is very pleasant...prices are high yet worth it.

Limited menu but if you are looking for a grat steak or large shrimps presented well and that taste fantastic, then Donde Mikel is a good bet. Prices were as we expected and were good value.

This a restaurant that has been around for a long time, but the flavor never gets old. Make sure to arrive early, or you might have to wait in line.

I enjoyed a fantastic meal at this hide-a-way, and was surprised to see how busy the restaurant was for a Monday lunch. I arrived early, as is suggested in previous reviews, and was one of the first 5 tables seated. While I waited for my meal to arrive, I watched as dozens of groups crowded in and filled the place...
