This is our favorite restaurant in Aspen because of the flavorful, interesting, quality food and the amazing staff that treat us like family. The atmosphere is very cozy and unassuming...more of a local vibe than Aspen glitz. But at the same time the food here is world-class quality that you won't find elsewhere. Gourmet Latin...not your usual Mexcan food. This trip we had a wonderfully romantic first night dinner with mojitoes and tapas. The chicken tortilla soup, spicy mushroom cheese dip, manchego potatoes gratin and crisp pork loin tacos were all wonderful. We went back later in the week with friends and had a great time and everyone enjoyed their meals...chicken enchiladas in banana leaf, grilled stuffed calimari, colorado trout, grilled prawns and Oaxacan chicken were beautifully prepared and tasty. Definitely enhanced by mojitoes! Mike, Zori, Matt and Ian make this a very special place you shouldn't miss on any trip to Aspen.

This is one of the best restaurants in Aspen and a trip to Aspen would be incomplete without a visit to this tucked-away gem. The time and energy invested by the owner into the dishes on the menu can be seen in the high quality of the food and its presentation and flavour. Always a warm welcome and good, attentive service in a quirky, relaxed atmosphere. Go down for a drink at the intimate bar and the excellent bar staff will make you feel at ease and give you suggestions on drinks and shots to make your night go with a bang. A locals favourite and it is obvious why. Make sure you put this one on your to do list while in town.

If you are expecting a trendy Aspen hangout...this is not it. If you are looking for exceptional flavors, authentic Latin, genuine servers rolled up in a funky (good funky) atmosphere, you will enjoy your experience like we did!

I like the place a lot. Maybe the chef had a bad day but I had better food there before. Service is really great there and they can provide you with some excellent cocktails.
