We decided last minute to try this place out. We found the staff and atmosphere to be very comforting. The table side guacamole was delicious. Our table had everything from fish, steak to a burrito. All were excellent.

Great atmosphere! Well served with a great staff. A place that differs from the others around in New york. Can really recommend the place. Negative thing is that even as a guest of the restaurant you need to pay entrance to their salsa club which...More
