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

Try the chicken sandwich, the muscles and most of the appetizers. The only bad... More

I thought this would be a typical grill and bar food but cha cha cha was a total surprise. The decor was unique as it looked like altars you see for the Mexican day of the dead festivals but waiter explained it was caribe religious theme! Also food good.

Hostess had to be reminded three times to bring us a high chair. Waitress went for a while. I was really loud. Glad we didn't sit in the back where it was really hot. I ordered the Jerk Chicken with white rice. Big mistake! I am Jamaican, so I am qualified by birthright to say that was nothing even close... More

We stepped inside without really knowing what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised! The restaurant serves Puerto Rican tapas and they were delicious! Also it wasn't expensive at all! Definitely recommend this to people who are in the neighborhood.

My husband and I stopped in while touring the area and could not be any more glad that we did, the food was great! We had the mushrooms tapas and the chicken one and they were delicious. A lot of flavor packed into these small dishes.
