This is a Mexican tapas place. You can order small tacos in a wide variety of flavors. It's lots of fun and an lively place.

Pretty casual place, California beach style decor, and all the staff dressed in cool CA clothes... Tacos are amazing. The hot sauces are some of the spiciest I have ever had. Go with the fish Acosta. You will not regret. It gets very busy, and always a wait outside, especially after 7. Standing room only inside. If you go early, like 6, you should be able to sit and eat quickly if you want to go to a movie next door. Waitstaff were very friendly, and fast. Prices very reasonable.

Very cute place in downtown Stamford serving Mexican style food. Small plate services, but yummy dishes. We tried the corn, rice with duck, chopped salad and a couple of tacos. Everything was good. Excellent value and a fun time had by all.

I must say our waiter was amazing! Even though we didn't ask he brought out some free dips that he liked with the tacos and gave us an extra gelato for free. They have great fresh squeezed lemonade and the tacos were different in a good way. Not everybody will like them but they are small (2 bits per taco) but it allows you to sample a few different types. My absolute favorite was the Fish Taco. It was like eating fish and chips in a taco form. Yum! The Gelato were great too. Enjoy but expect a big bill cause although it doesn't appear expensive on the menu everything adds up. We ordered16 tacos, 2 Romaine wedges, 4 mini corns, and 4 gelatos. Sounds like a lot but that is at least what you need to feed a family of 4 here. Very good food but wasn't happy about paying $120.
