Went here while on vacation after a recommendation - the food was really nice especially enjoyed the cajun shrimp. It was a little noisy - a sign of people enjoying themselves!

Went with my boyfriend & daughter. He had a salmon sandwich & I ordered the jerk chicken. It was exquisite. The white rice tasted like it was made with cocunut water which gave it a unique flavor. The sangria was refreshing. Wish we would've ordered a pitcher. There will be a next time!

I have been going here since I was 6 years old. My favorite dishes are the shrimp in the skillet, ceviche, potatoes, and beans and rice. They have yummy sangria too! Busy location requires planning for parking.

This was our 4th time at Cha Cha Cha's and it's always enjoyable. A light lunch of tapas and a glass of sangria. What's not to like! An eclectic place...unusual décor, which just adds to the charm. After lunch...it was one to Golden Gate park...just steps away.

Had a girls trip stopped by for lunch. Had the Classico 😊 sandwich with the salad, my sister had the steak sandwich with plantains which were amazing should have got those instead.

Yet, it is true that their tapas are delish... the decor matches the locale in the Haight/Ashbury area...the sangria called for seconds .... and it fulfilled my theory that if a place is busy, it must be good. And it was. Definitely order the shrimp in some delicious sauce and use the french bread to sop it up. We like... More

The food was excellent. BBQ Chicken Quesadillas were my favorite along with the sangria. The Cajun shirimp was the favorite of the other ladies (I skipped it) and we all enjoyed the New Potatoes. Our server seemed a little unhappy almost to the point of annoyed. It was an extremely busy Saturday afternoon but it wasn't very welcoming.

I had the Cajun shrimp, my my was I amazed!! The flavored were bold, savory, spicy, just what you'd expect from a plate reading Cajun. My sister had the arroz con pollo, and it's as Cuban as you can get. I tasted it and man o man did I fall in love with it. The rice was moist, but properly... More

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighborhood Profile
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighborhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
