The location is tucked onto a small street at the edge of The city proper. The food was fresh, perfect temp and service was prompt. The ceviche was ice cold and spicy without destroying the palate. The shrimp Diablo with dirty rice was a great...balance between spicy and rich. I’ve never had coconut flan, but this was amazing as well. Highly recommend.More

About 12 of us had dinner and drinks there. It is cozy and welcoming with distinctive artwork. The appetizers and entrees were unique and the presentation of each dish was outstanding. I had shrimp diablo and it was fantastic. Prices were very reasonable and they...gave us all separate checks. Not a bad walk from the Grand Hyatt.More

We are new to the San Antonio/ South Town area and have been exploring new restaurants each weekend. This by far was the best food and service we’ve received. Everything from appetizers, dinner, dessert and cocktails was done with flavor, care, and the plating was...perfect. We will definitely go againMore

I have been to several upscale Latin restaurants and this one is by far the very best! Delicious flavors and excellent service! I had slow cooked pork and my husband had salmon. Delicious.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. Everything was excellent and not overly expensive. We had the paella, and one order was more than enough for two people.

Great family owned restaurant. Friendly and good service. The salads, beef churrasco and Tres Leches were delicious! Margs and mojitos were good as well. Great HH appetizers and drinks at the bar or patio.

Been here about 6 times since I moved to San Antonio area 2.5 yrs ago. Awesome food and service every time. Ambiance is warm, eclectic and welcoming. Food is top notch full of flavor and flare with lots of seafood options (not a fried food...place, real fresh stuff here!). After first time I came here, I now bring long term San Antonians because it is truly a hidden gem. I'd say this should be on your list!!!More

My husband and I spent our 1st anniversary here 11 years ago and spent our 11th anniversary there this weekend! The people are still amazing and so sweet, the food is out of this world, and the atmosphere is anything you want it to be....We ordered the sampler appetizer (your tastebuds will dance), the tropical mahi mahi plate and parillada...everything was amazing! The prickle pear margarita and mango mojito were our "happy endings." We will be back!More

A local suggested we try Azuca Nuevo Latino Restaurant. We did and it proved to be a great recommendation. We sat with a pitcher of sangria while sharing a few courses. I’m passing along the recommendation.

SUPERB! Returned to San Antonio for 40th anniversary to one of our favorite restaurants. Fun& relaxing atmosphere. Exotic tropical bar selections. We experimented with the delicious& unique choices of Mojito’s and Sangrias before dinner. Our attentive & friendly waiter brought us appetizers we inquired about...that was not even on the menu, fried yuca. Dinner was tasty w/fresh herbs and vegetables to supplement delicious traditional and modern Latin meat & seafood options. Had Chilean Sea Bass & Feijoada do Rio Pork Shank w/grilled Caribbean vegetables & black beans/rice. Great presentation. Tropical Fruit Gratin & the Dessert Sampler great choices to top off a lovely evening. Live music & salsa dancing not currently available (COVID-19) yet still enjoyed great Latin music as we dined. Patio dining was available, but selected indoor seating (well separated for social distancing). Staff made it a perfect and memorable evening! Vielka & Jeff......More

Went here just before closing, on a whim. My biggest regret is that we had eaten a large late lunch, so we were unable to do justice to the delicious food on the menu. My other regret is that we don’t live in the area,...so we cannot easily return. Azuca specializes in Mojitos, my Very Berry was perfect, and my husband said his red Sangria was the best he’s ever had. Warm just-out-of-the-oven cornbread with butter was a superb starter, and the Beef Steak Churrasco which he ordered was cooked perfectly. I loved my Spiced Chicken and Spinach salad, regret #3 is that I was way too full to try a dessert. We also appreciated the graciousness of our server, and the restaurant’s adherence to Covid 19 safety procedures. Just go!!More

Menu had a number of interesting items and settled on a mixed seafood stew which was indeed delicious although did not care for potatoes in a stew with rice. Service was attentive. I was a bit miffed when the server added both an 18% tip...and a 20% tip to the final bill; when brought to her attention she apologized and removed the 18% one [menu did not state that anything was automatically added to a bill].More
