Great food and a true San Francisco destination on Haight. You can't come here without having the Chicken Paillard! I love to sop up all that fabulous rich sauce with bread. Great sangria, too. A half pitcher holds about four glasses and runs $14. The restaurant can get a little noisy, especially late at night. We usually eat in the... More

The tapas were very delicious, especillay the shrimp. I was very satisfied. It costed only 60 USD for three persons. It was in Haight-Ashbury. We... More

My friend has been coming to this place for 20+ years. I had never been and she swore I would love it. Expect a wait and don't make the mistake of moving bar stools or sitting at the bar unless you have "reserved" the space with the host/hostess. The food is good, but unfortunately a conversation is nearly impossible as... More

The tapas here at very very good, so we are giving it a 3. It feels a little dirty. But the place is so loud that you simply cannot enjoy a meal. Not fun. I know loud restaurants are all the rage, but this is off the charts. Hopefully the loud restaurant trend will die a fast, miserable death very... More

My husband and I started going to this restaurant in 1998. The sangria is fantastic and the food is wonderful. We always love the potatoes, calamari, and jerk chicken. This is where we first started eating ceviche. It has great atmosphere and is always crowded.

Unique atmosphere. Best sangria ever (get the 1/2 pitcher for 2). Creamy shrimp a little spicy but fantastic flavor. Glazed wings and mustard chicken were also amazing. Only regret was not eating there sooner so we could have tried it twice!

Lively food. Cajun shrimp starts creamy ends fiery. Plantain with black beans is a great comfort food combination. Jerk chicken top notch. Latin Caribbean fusion decor with funky sounds. Best we had in SF.

We enjoyed this restaurant! Our trip to Haight Asbury was good over all. This was our mid day meal and everything was good.

No one questions the quality of the restaurants in San Fran, there are some amazing resturants, but most come with amazing prices. Cha Cha Cha has great food at a great price. The small plates were on par with some of the best Tapas restaurants we have been too. The muscles and cajun ship were our favorites. It is a... More
