We were visiting Athens for the first time from the Uk and were invited for dinner. We thought the place was really great the decor is quirky and different with lots of interesting things to look at . The food however was superb. We ordered a wide selection in our group to try lots of different things and they were... More

I don't like spicy food, jerk seasoning, etc....so was apprehensive about eating here. A pleasant surprise. It was all delicious. I'm going back often to try a lot of other things that are new to me. Fish tacos? Flat good.

I had the grilled tilapia and it was very good! Moist, fat beans, rice,yuca frites with onions and a nice side salad. The fish was piping hot and grilled perfectly! Both sangrias are really good. I will definitely go back. Ordering is quite slow.

I ate here frequently while working in Athens and a friend recommended coming for the fish tacos. I quickly became addicted to them. Bring cash and enjoy great food while sitting at the outdoor picnic style tables. Near the university.

During a visit to Athens, GA, I visited with family to this restaurant. At first sight, I was not very impressed by anything. The restaurant has a policy that does not accept credit cards. You have to pay cash. If you don't have enough cash, you have to make a trip next door to the gas station to get cash.... More

Simple place with decent food at a decent price. There is plenty of space for small children and a caged macaw, which might entertain your kids while you enjoy eating your food, which is of an interesting variety. I particularly enjoyed the fried yucca (very well done). A couple of warnings: 1- Bring cash, because they don't take credit/debit cards;... More

I took my 10 year old daughter last night after strolling around Athens. We thought it was a Mexican restaurant, but it was a little different (maybe more of a Brazilian type menu, not sure?). Fun place to sit and eat, a play area for kids, and a beautiful Parrot in a cage to look at. We did not spend... More

One of the best meals I've had in Athens. One sandwich was enough for two people. We went on a Saturday for lunch. Get there early if you wanna go on a Friday or Saturday night.

Just solid very tasty food for a fair price. The atmosphere is eclectic. This is a place to take the kids, eat alone, take a special guest.... This is the place I take out of town guests to give them a taste of Athens.
