Should have gone many years ago

Small plate specialist. Four of us had 10 plates without a misstep in any of them. Even the octopus was great. Sensible wine list. Shame we have moved away and can't easily go back

Great food, great wine, great atmosphere. The sliders and truffle fries are fantastic. Make a reservation! Closed Sundays, wine specials on Mondays.

The place was perfect all the way around! There are pub tables and the usual tables and the mixture fits really well in the restaurant. The wines are excellent and they offer well rounded choices. It was busy and slightly noisy but that just added to the atmosphere!

Cin Cin is a great neighborhood gem. A little load at times but the food is great! The sliders, steamed pork buns, flatbread, truffle fries, Korean taco's. Drinks were good too. The girl's ordered pear martini's but they didn't have the ingredients. The bartender made something special with a money back guaranteed. They really liked them.

This one is my favorite in Los Gatos... They serve small plates and great wines in a very casual setting. The menu is fun to explore, mixing all sorts of cuisines and ingredients and everything is really good... the prices are very reasonable for the quality you get.... Will certainly go back next time I am in this area and... More

We had the small plates. 8 different plates. All excellent. Octopus was great, mushroom empanadas was very tasty. Korean Taco spicy but great. Definitely a great place. Pricey but worth it. Service was excellent and helpful explaining the offerings. Great wine and beer selection. If you like fine dining you will like this place. We were sorry our trip ended... More

Our favorites were the risotto and the octopus. But there are lots of small plates to choose from, creative choices and interesting wine list. Loved the mango margaritas. Perfect place for drinks and small bites.

Do not be fooled by the description "small plates" the serving size is perfect for sharing. After a day of golf our group of 4 was starving. We started with 4 small plates shared which included chicken liver mousse, wrapped figs, goat crostini, and steamed pork buns. Then for second round we had octopus, shrimp and grits and of course...

The chef creates the most interesting and varied appetizers I've had....and the happy hour bar menu is as good as the dinner menu, meaning you will feel like you've had a meal after 3 appetizers...we had the pork buns, fish tacos and calamari and they were each unique and DELICIOUS.....and we are a picky couple of world travelers!
