We stumbled upon this neighborhood gem on a steamy hot day and had a languid lunch while listening to wonderful jazz. We could have hung out here all afternoon. They had a few people eating at the massive bar, under a huge antique ceiling fan. The pace is nice and peaceful at lunch, I imagine it picks up at dinner... More

Very pleasant ambiance with white tablecloth service. Highlights were fresh gazpacho, fried rice with baby shrimp and a silky tortilla soup. Breads and dips are homemade. Highly recommend for classic Spanish/Cuban fare.

Once he did, he did a good job. He kept our water glasses full and would check in with us every once in awhile. We were a... More

I stopped in on a Wednesday night with 2 friends. Valet is $8. We were the only diners that evening, at 6pm....that is what I mean by quiet restaurant. Good service, good food. I wasn't blown away by anything. I ordered the Sweet Potato Croquettes and the White Truffle Risotto with Shrimp...the dishes were tasty, but not memorable. The Mojitos... More

I had the best halibut I've ever experienced in a restaurant. Simply sauteed and served over tomato risotto with a tomato and avocado salad and a sweet and spicy sauce this dish was sublime. Good wine list and great mojitos too. There really is a Xiomara and she keeps a close watch over her namesake restaurant.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
