Really good brunch: best huevos rancheros I've ever eaten. Staff are helpful and friendly, albeit slightly disorganized. Would eat here again.

You cannot complain about brunch on a Saturday with endless Mimosas! The waiter was definitely helpful with his suggestions and i can truly say that i had the best burger in my entire life! Instead of fries you get YUCA! It was perfect, my favorite mimosa was the blackberry flavor. For people who are not shy to try new things,... More

We ate here after seeing Queen at Madison Sq Gdns. It was next door to our hotel on EHouston. Staff were friendly. Drinks were good and food was freshly cooked. Tapas plates were a good size. We had 3between us and it was enough though for us. Great Latino/ Cuban vibe and quite a young crowd.

Tried out their Sunday brunch Mimosa special with a group of 9. I suggest making reservations however your entire party (or at least the majority of it) must be present to be sat. Your 2 hours unlimited starts as soon as you sit. We all stuck with the Mimosas as they have a variety of flavors to choose from and... More

Walked into Sunday brunch at noon and were seated right away at the counter. We were told that if you dont have a reservation, you can only stay for an hour. Understandably, because of the bottomless mimosa special! $15 for bottomless delicious mimosas. Great atmosphere, great food. Highly recommend the eggs benedict. Service wasnt great sitting at the counter, but... More

Great food! We were a party of four and had dinner on a Friday. It was my second time there. First time a year ago. We let the waitress choose a selection of their dishes for us to share. Everything was to die for! We had fresh tuna bits on sticks, flatbread, corn sallad, taco with beef, empanadas, warm avocado... More

Well it used to be incredible, for brunch, which is when we usually go, and we've been going for years. Now everything is bigger, even the drinks, and louder, both the crowds and the music. Perhaps this is their formula for success. But when the plates were smaller you could try more things, which is well worth doing because the... More

Great food, cocktails and ambiance. Staff were on form and really clued up on the menus which is refreshing to see. Will definitely be visiting again.

Suggested by a friend on my trip to NYC. This place is a must for South American Tapas. Every dish was delicious. Drinking from the Porron's was a great experience! The owner was a gem, very hospitable and made us feel very welcome. Great decor, ambience, food and service.
