Food is great, parking is not

Expect to have a hard time finding somewhere to park. The parking lot in the front it small, the parking lot in the back is bigger but a good bit of those spots are reserved. The food is great. They have a nice selection of ethnic hispanic foods to choose from. I would recommend you try whatever... read more

This is good Costa Rican good, but few vegetarian options. Gets crowded for Friday lunch as it's in the middle of office zone. Their plantain chips are amazing!!

I ate here a few times while staying in the area on business. This restaurant is consistently excellent, and even on a busy Saturday night they made room for me. I look forward to returning.

If one is looking for Mexican food you won't go far wrong with this restaurant. Service is good - however, the food is nothing special. Does not have the wow factor.

great find; wonderful margaritas and wine to go with delicious, guacamole, ceviche, mussels and short ribs. The flan was yummy too. It is a cute place with outstanding food and service to match. We cannot wait to return. I wish it weren't an hour's drive from our house.

Delicious food, on the pricey side, but worth it. Staff is friendly and attentive. More ambiance in the Stamford location, but parking is much better at Norwalk location. Sometimes it can smell like nail polish remover (nail place is on the other side of one wall of the restaurant). Vibrant bar scene.

My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant in Norwalk, CT. thinking it was a Mexican restaurant. It was way more and fabulous. The food presentation is gourmet style. I had pan-seared salmon that was seared perfectly with a nice crust. The rice was not starchy and contained black beans and some squash - more than I expected! The lunch... More
