“Must have the sangria”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Low key, small, fun stop in the Haight-Ashbury neighbourhood. Friendly staff and wonderful sangria. Not fine dining, but you'll leave satisfied. The paella is FULL of seafood and wonderfully delicious. It's usually only available when it's listed as a special, but if it's not too busy then the chef will prepare a dish for you. A great stop for an early dinner after a day of biking/exploring.

“Good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Stumbled across Cha Cha Cha on a long day of urban hiking in San Francisco. Enjoyed a nice lunch of pulled pork sandwiches and salads. Service was prompt and friendly, food was tasty, and the place had the vibe of the Haight-Asbury neighborhood.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My buddy recommended this restaurant as a place to meet family. He was so right, excellent food, Sangria and great staff. Only complaint was bathrooms could've been cleaner.

“Very confused about the good reviews...ho hum food & service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is not a place I would recommend. San Francisco has so many terrific restaurants-not use how this place receives rave reviews. The list of tapas is not extensive, but rather average. The food itself is just okay. We had 4 different items. A shrimp creole dish, a potato dish, a quesadilla plate, and I don't even recall the fourth thing (yeah, that's the food...forgettable). Service was poor. I had to ask for more water and sangria (sangria is tasty) twice. We were never checked on to see if we needed anything. This was my second time at the restaurant (the first being at the mission location which is a nicer and bigger setting). I went again because I thought I would give it a second chance. There won't be a third time.
