“Romantic setting with great food!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

What a great place, it seems as though you’re in a sleepy and quaint beachside resort! My husband and I decided to return to a tried a true restaurant, complete with great Latin American food and drinks, delightful music and a romantic ocean front location. Doesn’t get any better…drinks, dinner, and dancing. The Mojitos are potent and their Pork Carnitas would be our recommendations. We also enjoyed their Ahi Tostadas appetizer and their Sauteed Calamari. The portions are sufficient for 2 and the Mojitos pack a punch. The service was excellent and the entertainment is fantastic for listening or dancing if you like Van Morrison, Santana, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Whether you’re visiting Long Beach or a local, we promise that you will be pleased…and the prices are reasonable!

“Good Mexican Food and Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Great place for margaritas but also a good wine list. Chili Relanos were unique and staff is very attentive. One of the nicest restaurants with a view that is not part of a chain in Long Beach.

“Not what we expected”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

The location is prime. The decorative "idea" is spot on, but they totally "miss" with the food. The interior could use a little "sprucing up", and the kitchen may need a visit from Hell's kitchen Chef Ramsay because it is on a decline. Menu items sound good, but don't deliver.

“Nice view and Jazz”
Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

Visiting from Texas with friends who are from the L.A. area. This place was awesome and the food - fajitas - were great and filling. Drinks- chuppacabra - was good. Nice band near our table with good jazz artists-Steve Oliver. Overall this place was fun filled with nice ambience and beach breeze atmosphere.
