Brunch on Saturday, on the patio, in the shade, a carafe of rose sangria, the sweet life. Five of us shared a meal, with great service, great food. Fresh guacamole, great salad (loved the chicken, wish I could make it like that), octupus and more....More

We really liked this place, it has an interesting, almost minimal menu, and everything we tried was unique and flavorful. Service was quite good and the atmosphere is hip. Great place to hit just before a show at ACL Moody. Also, there are a lot...More

Went to this restaurant late on Wednesday evening this past week. The atmosphere generally was nice and the food was good, though portions were quite small and pricey given the size. Our waitress took at least 15 minutes to come to the table for the...More

I had the Mariscos ceviche, the house Margarita and the guacamole, all of which were awesome. The poke was also very good but super salty (this was my first time; maybe that's a feature ...) The featured rose was also very dry.

Great food, attentive service. Creative cocktails, food well thought out, distintcive flavours well blended. Great location with a funky, modern Mexican vibe, eat in or out on a lovely street setting. A very nice Austin restaurant, mid to upper $ range.

Terribly slow. Old , cold tortillas. Incomprehensible green sauce on chicken tacos. Austin can do a better job with Mexican food elsewhere. Hard to understand. Must be the trendy place to go (but not to eat). They recognized how bad they were and they comped...More

We were headed to a different restaurant. Since Google Maps had us walking in circles, we opted to stop at a clothing shop to ask for directions but receive the recommendation for La Condesa. It was within eye sight so we went for it. 3...More

In a town that is replete with Mexican/Tex-Mex restaurants, this one simply does not rise to the top tier. The service, including the front door staff, busser, and server, were all polite and efficient. However, nothing that stood out from any other average or better...More
