Since we were staying on Bedford and have a thing for mexican food we had to try Vera Cruz. Unfortunately we did this before checking the internet for reviews. What a big mistake to think you get true mexican food here. The food was colourless. It was poorly spiced, which made everything taste the same. This is hard because beans... More

I've been to Veracruz 2-3 years ago, and I really liked it. So this time, I wanted to bring a few friends from abroad to this place as we were having a few drinks in the neighbourhood.

Above average food, drinks are normal, the wait staff looks as if they hate their lives but then again I would also. They open the back during the summer for outdoor dining. Gives the place a good look. Nice atmosphere for semi quiet dining. Good place to check out if you're in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. You will leave pleased
