Good food, on the Riverwalk, tried the cactus pear Margarita. If you like tequila- they have lots and you can sample several for a fee.

We hosted a client happy hour here, and our clients showed up 45 minutes early! Our servers calmly said they could start the tab early, put a rush on all the pre-ordered catering, and were such a huge help. The food got out early, the clients got drinks, and I didn't have to be stressed. The Mezzanine space was a... More

My friend and I were in town for SXSW. Even though it was crowded we were seated upon arrival. The rooftop is an excellent place for people watching. The goat cheese quesadillas were delicious. My only complain were the cocktails which were quite small.

We had a great time at your restaurant! The food was ready as expected and tasted delicious, I only wish I could have eaten more! The service was wonderful, I would definitely have another event there and would recommend your venue to others.

Nice service and big, bright restaurant. Food came out fast and hot, and everyone was super friendly. Wasn't the best Mexican out there but given it's awesome location and the ability to have tables of 10 or 12- you can't beat it for quality and price.

We chanced upon this restaurant on our first night in Austin. The food was very good, it was red meat which we found we could not avoid during our stay in Texas because it was on the whole so good. What we selected (for us English) included some unusual combinations of flavours and was spicy. We loved it. The service... More

Dining on the rooftop while life rocks everywhere in the neighborhood is a great way to spend a mild evening as the sun goes down. Every staff member I encountered was so friendly. One of our party was vegetarian and she had a lot of options. I had grilled chicken enchiladas that were really great. The beer was cold, vibe... More

find a seat on the terrace to enjoy the superb view over the busy thoroughfare of 6th Avenue. cocktails are good, good food, excellent, friendly service, good prices - the only snag can be that's it's always so super busy that you might miss your scenic view (which is without a doubt the best thing about this restaurant).
