Gorgeously remodeled restaurant. Great wine list of local and Italian wines. Food was fantastic- highlights were octopus starter and the rabbit entree. Also if you love steak tartar, the carne crudo is pretty great.

Café Juanita is one of those restaurants you think back on for years to come. The food is outstanding, the ambiance warm and inviting, and the service is wonderful. Holly Smith has taken Café Juanita to new levels and it is all great.

Don't worry, if the renovations are not finished by July, they will still be at their pop up location on 12th Ave. in Seattle. Telephone them at their old number and they can advise you. Enjoy!
