Just when I was starting to really like them. They have (or had now) a $5 two-taco lunch special which was always good. Nice, friendly staff too. In any case, the restaurant is closed now and I heard the owners bought a different establishment in...More

From the savory croquettes to the subtly sweet Caribbean flavors of the coconut wrap dinner, our meals were amazing! The live, 3-man jazz band & the quality of the food combined with the friendly, low-key atmosphere make this place both relaxing & fun for everyone....More

Very pleased with what we ordered and that they served wild caught salmon!!! . Their menu has so much more on it than what is posted on the menu tab. Definitely one of our Asheville's favorites!

This is located on the fringe of the Arcade in Asheville, only few blocks from the downtown flow. We were referred by a local and went on a Saturday when they were slammed. They had a guitarist playing outside where we sat to eat lunch....More

This is a cuban themed restaurant. The time we went I has some Ropa Viejo and I actually saw the owner making the food. My wife had another dish but it was not that good. Mine was a bit dry. I wish they had more...More
