This is an outdoor seating only bar! They have live music and wonderful Margharitas! We didn't eat here, but had drinks only while waiting for our table at a restaurant adjacent. Great evening ambiance with lit trees and an open air bar!

The atmosphere here is great! Outdoor seating and on a gorgeous day like we had it was perfect! The tacos were something to write home about for sure! I LOVE LOVE tacos so for me this was a big one! The steak quesadillas were top notch too! Unfortunately we are tequila lovers and the cheapest shot of tequila was $11. We were on vacation so went ahead and tried it and it was pretty good. The pitchers of margaritas are pretty awesome too! Pricey but worth it if you have some extra cash to burn :)

A pretty place to have a drink and very light fare in a nice corner of San Jose. Ambiance is fine. But do not count on either efficient service or a large selection in the menu. And the Mexican dishes served are just OK. With disposable silverware to eat them with.

We came here for lunch, and not only is the promenade absolutely beautiful, but the restaurant has a huge tree in the middle, that they built around. It really adds to the ambiance of the place, and shades most of the tables.
We shared the nachos, which was definitely big enough. And really yummy, they weren't shy with the chicken, cheese and sour cream.
But the margarita was the star of the show. It was a bit pricey for a small glass ($11) but made with quality Cazadores tequila, and they weren't shy with their pour. You could also tell they use fresh squeezed lime juice, which was essential in making this perfectly delicious margie.
Our server took her time in greeting us, after walking by a few times, but once she had time to come by, she was very attentive until we left.
Great spot, I'll definitely be back.

This is a must stop every time I oh to visit family in northern CA. The ambiance is just perfect, in the heart of Santana row, it's very small , so arrive by 5 pm on Fridays and sat if you want a table because it gets packed!!! The guacamole and salsa are a bit over priced but do taste good! I love the nachos and the best is the music, they have an Awsome Latin band on fri and sat and mariachi on Sundays. The restaurant was created in a wide center divider of the street, just so rounded by a 3 feet wall all around , so can enjoy the outdoors the plants and trees and all the beauty of the Santana row district, close on rain days since there is no roof! Just huge trees adorned with Xmas lights. Heaters in the winter . I always dance even when dance floor is the tiniest one.
