“Good Mexican near the Oakland museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

This is a perfect little place to eat after touring the Oakland museum. They serve very tasty tapas that are better than most Mexican restaurants. They are also open for lunch till 3 pm, unlike some other places in Old Oakland that close earlier.

“Upscale Mexican-GF Choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

This is a nice find in downtown Oakland, a short walk up Broadway from Jack London Square, and a few blocks from the Marriott. The food is certainly a few notches above your normal Mexican. The meats and fishes were incredibly flavorful. Lots of GF choices, although it doesn't hurt to make sure the waiter/waitress understands this. Thought it was a little pricey. But this part of Oakland really needs classy eateries with vibrant atmospheres. So it's worth the trip.

“Tapas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Fantastic Mexican tapas place. The Tacos de Camaron, the Queso Fundido and that one with the steak and cheese was really, really good!

“Unique Mexican cuisine in a charming environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

If you're looking for cheap Tex-Mex, you won't find it here. But you will find a great selection of small dishes, really tasty ingredients and a hopping bar scene. Not cheap, but worthy it. Just off Broadway in downtown, walking distance from the Marriott, Courtyard, Convention Ctr and Jack London Square.
