We stumbled upon this little gem last night. Visiting Austin from San Diego we were looking for a good Mexican restaurant that was not your typical greasy Tex-mex. Nothing prepared though for the treat we had in store. The ambiance was incredible in the renovated older home turned modern chic yet warm restaurant. There was a nice small separate bar area when you walked. Then the restaurant itself was divided into rooms which enhanced the intimacy of the dining experience. The menu is small because every dish was made to order with the freshest ingredients. My kids order limeade that was as good or better than my Serrano pepper laden margarita. We started with a fresh tuna cerviche was served with warm homemade chips. The flavors melted and swirled together in your mouth. We could have eaten several of these. The cochinita pibil was the best I have had anywhere in the world ... Even better than in the Yucatan. It was served with homemade corn tortillas. If there was any place to criticize our meal, and it was a small criticism it was the mole poblano. Although good, it just didn't rise to that next level like everything else did. And finally the service ... Impeccable! My husband said our waiter was the best he ever had. If you want to treat yourself to a cool hidden gem when in Austin this is the place to go!
