Nice ambience to wind down after a long day. The apps are awesome, especially the salmon taco and the quesadilla. Added bonus is that this restaurant is steps from Venice Beach. Great place for those warm summer nights.

But it was just average, and an expensive average at that. Service was slow (understaffed) but friendly enough. And how can they not have enough menus that it takes 20 minutes until one is available to look at? Nice start with the plaintain chips and dipping sauces. Barramundi fish was mushy. Side of mashed potatoes was ok. Steak chimichurri was a little overcooked, though still tender; side of rice and black beans ok. Inside dining is crowded; you may end up talking with your neighbors! Don't think we'll go back.

I adore this spot for a bite to ear after a stroll along Venice Beach... I went to it many times over the 2 years that I lived in LA and it never failed to be tasty! The staff were always charming and every now and then live music... Great!! Highly recommended and pretty healthy too. Nice!

Stopped in for breakfast. Great mimosas, bloody Mary's, and breakfast with a Cuban twist. Would come back.

Half a block away fom the Venice Pier and the beach, it is one of my favorite places for breakfast/lunch/bruch in that area. The tables at the terrace by the sidewalk are great for enjoying the fun beach atmosphere. The inside of the restaurant is open to the sidewalk, and there is a huge skylight, so the inside tables also make for a very light and pleasant space. Food is Cuban/Caribbean mostly, with a good selection. A fun way to enjoy lunch or breakfast while enjoying the great Los Angeles beach atmosphere.
