Great food and ambiance!

Great food with a really nice taste! Great ambiance, even though a little too noisy to be able to speak properly. But I will definitely come back here!

Cha Cha Cha on Haight never ceases to amaze me!! Seems the food just gets better every visit. Although the mouth watering sandwichs are very decently priced, go for the tapas .. but be cautious to not order too many!! The warm spinach salad (with mushroons, bacon and a creamy sauce) is to die for. The fried plantains with a... More

If you are looking for Puerto Rican food in San Francisco you can find colorful and tasteful dishes in Parada 22 on Haight Street. If you are looking for food and a cultural experience beyond background music, Cha Cha Cha on Haight is the place to go. This is a place to share tapas and sangria while immersing yourself in...

Big Bus tour guide recommended this restaurant while stopping to see the Haights so we did. Service and food were good. A good corner stop to watch the locals walking by.

This is nice small place located on height street. Great service and great food. Friendly staff. Only reason I'm giving four star because of the bread and undercooked chicken in chicken paillard dish. Gravy and sauce are amazing. Loved it. Fried new potatoes are excellent. Must try dish. Sangria is another disappointing but I think it's close to standard taste.... More

Cha Cha Cha is in the Haight area of San Francisco. This is a good place to come for happy hour. I like theri Sangria. I like their calamari, chicken wings, and for dinner entree their jerk chicken. Service is friendly.

Fun atmosphere and delicious food! Walking distance to shops in the historic Haight Ashbury area of San Francisco. I went in the summer and there was a wait but nothing terribly drastic. The food was eclectic and the company was tops. Even the locals live it.

I have not been to another place like Cha Cha Cha! Shop away at Amoeba Records a few doors down and then come here to cap off an amazing day. Lots of interesting Caribbean tapas food to try and don't think about not ordering any of their awesome sangria (unless maybe you shouldn't). Part corner diner, part club, and part... More

We took a local bus from our hotel to this restaurant which is located a block or two from Golden Gate Park. We walked around for about 20 minutes waiting for the couple we were having dinner with. If you’re a local, maybe this wouldn’t bother you but I was not comfortable with the amount of very drugged out looking... More

We were walking down the area and after goint to the amazing Amoeba records store we decided to have lunch... we weren't expecting much of the area but we were curious about the Cha Cha Cha, there was a table available and booom... a great meal! Try the chicken sandwich, the muscles and most of the appetizers. The only bad... More
