Limon's rotisserie chicken is the best! Very moist with great flavor! We ordered the whole chicken with 3 sides, and were very satisfied! Yuca fries were excellent. We will be back.

Our family had a couple of roast chickens along with a variety of sauces. There were also some tasty side dishes. The service and location were good for us.

This place was incredible. The vibe is strong and the music is loud but regardless whether you like that or not the food was incredible. Every single thing we ordered from Octopus to empanadas to yuca fries was off the chart. We ordered one of everything on the dessert menu and I can safely say that they're all excellent but... More

Went here with work colleagues. Tried some different ceviche dishes, my favourite was the tuna. All were tasty. For the mains I had the paella which was also good. Good gluten free options.

The atmosphere in this Tapas-style restaurant is a blend of casual and old world elegance. We ate steak and paella main courses that were good value and tasty. The chicken dishes look like their specialty. As always in Tapas places the small plates are small. But good.

Lively atmosphere and quick service. Chicken good and sides excellent. Macaroni cheese a good dish. Felt like a San Francisco version of Nando's.
