We went here as guests of locals and found the tapas to be delicious and there was quite a selection. The pitcher of Sangria was delicious too. I think it was pricey, but can't confirm because I didn't pay. The music was too loud for my preference but I still really enjoyed the meal.

It's a funky place and fits with the neighborhood. Can be a bit loud but the food was good and the Sangria packs a punch! Was a little disturbed with the not so clean bathroom but overall a good experience and fun lunch with friends.

I am not a restaurant basher ( I own one in Sonoma County) but the service here was the worst I have ever had, Last Saturday I and 2 friends walked in and put our name down for a table. The wait was 40 minutes. We tried to order an appetizer in the bar as we were pretty darn hungry.... More

Noisy, busy, great food, interesting people and staff, worthy of the neighborhood; still pretty funky. Our air bnb hostess recommended this restaurant. Ample portions served and prepared just fine.

Read this was a great place to eat in Haight & Ashbury area. Ate here for lunch. Very short wait. We ordered sangria which was strong and very tasty! For lunch we ordered the Chicken Polliard which was delicious! We dipped the bread in the Dijon sauce. We also ordered the BBQ pork quesadillas which were very good as well.... More

We had a myriad of tapas at this little spot, and all of them were really quite good. We specifically liked the red beans and rice, empanadas, and plantains. The fresh lemonade and sangria were also really good.

The place was busy when we got there but had a line out the door when we left. We ended up sitting at the bar which I enjoyed although my friends would rather be at a table. Music was really chill. Bartender was pleasant. I didn't like my meal that much but was very pleased with the sangria! I will... 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.
