If you live in the Potrero Hill neighborhood, this is a place you would like to walk to for an easy meal. As other reviewers have said, the downside here is that it is extremely small - @ 8 counter seats and 6 tables for 2 (less if joined for 4 people) and a few tables outside. Once we were... More

The only downside to a dinner here was that with a line outside the door we felt guilty to linger after finishing our meal. This is definitely worth a stop if in the neighborhood. It's a small and cozy joint, perfect for meeting a couple of friends. Perhaps too casual for a first date and the place isn't set up... More

I loved all the food we had here. Super fresh and a fun atmosphere. The fish taco wasn't greasy and you could mix and match the tacos up. The duck confit is a treat and different From other places. It's a little small but definitely worth the visit.

Nice Restaurant, very small inside but gives it a local and authentic feel. Unable to make reservations so would recommend you turn up early on the weekend, especially if the weather isnt great. Food was nice and tasty and very reasonably priced. Would recommend the duck tacos and the pulled pork and pineapple and guac. Service could be improved as... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner @ Papito. Recommend the burritos with shrimp- quote tasty. Our companion had the burrito with duck confit and liked it as well. Smallish place, tried to eat outside but the wind drove us indoors. Go early if the weather's on the coolish side. Recommended!

This little Mexican restaurant is a bit off the beaten track for tourists. Locals come here for take away or sit in because of the incredibly well tasting food. It is well frequented. I'd recommend this Mexican to any who love to immerse in local culture (which is very international, staff being partly French), enjoying a friendly staff and non-fancy... More

In an attempt to extend their "Chez" French empire around the block, it appears that the French have invaded Mexico again. This tiny space is a crass attempt to cash in on the taco/quesadilla craze and after-work margarita crowd who don't really want a full meal, just the small plates. But looks and tastes are deceiving, since the food is... More

Yum yum! The food here was excellent. I shared the guacamole and had a shrimp and fish taco for dinner. My girlfriend had the vegeterian/tofu taco. All our food was delicious! Drinks were great too, we enjoyed watermelon champagne (a twist on the mimosa). The service was good, the waiters were all extremely friendly and helpful. It's a small restaurant... More

Welcoming staff, reasonable portions, and delicious food. We had the guacamole, salad and baja tacos. Literally every morsel was eaten. Such a great neighborhood gem, we are lucky to be in walking distance.

Great little (like... 3 tables and a bar) Potrero Hill cafe doing inventive French-inspired tacos, agua fresca and other Mexican food. The duck confit tacos are excellent. Come for a weekday lunch, or even between normal meal hours - the place will be nearly deserted except for the regulars.
