We stumbled on this place by chance. So glad we did. Delicious, fresh food, reasonable prices, great service. Had the guacamole, carne asada tacos, and the adobe chicken salad. All were terrific. We ate outside because we had the pooch but the inside looked very nice.

Thank LuLuCt

My husband and I tried this place and we were not disappointed. We shared the Lentil Soup and it was wonderful. I had the Kale Market Salad and loved it. Perfectly paired with just the right amount of dressing. My husband ordered the Vegan Tacos and that was the only thing we were not that crazy about. My husband is vegan so he was very excited with he saw this on the menu, however, we felt it lacked flavor and was not very filling, it would work better as an app or a very light lunch. We will however be back to try other things as the menu really looked good. Serve was a bit slow, we were there at lunch time and there was only one server and she was also running the register and they were really busy.

Cute little place off the main historic street. Very fresh, healthy, subtle dishes. Tortilla soup and kale salad were excellent. Reasonable prices. You order and pay first, then sit down and they bring the food to your table.

Three friends and I enjoyed a delicious dinner here last night. It was a great surprise to see offerings from all over the world-- "food without borders". There were great appetizers, entrees, salads, soups,and small plates from Asia, Mexico,South America, Mediterranean , Middle East, Italy, Greece, and more. With a great selection of Vegetarian options, we all had excellent dishes. The staff was attentive and the atmosphere was casual and friendly. There was a good selection of beers and wines and non-alcoholic beverages. We didn't have ro for dessert, but left very happy and determined to return to try other things.

This restaurant is is new, and as yet largely undiscovered. Its a bit off the beaten path - actually its in the heart of beach side New Smyrna, within walking distance of the main drag (Flagler), and has its own parking. Well worth tracking it down. We have eaten at this restaurant numerous times - we can't stop going back. (Why go elsewhere when we know its better than most of the better known eateries - far better than most of the high ranked places on Tripadvisor). We rank it one of the best in New Smyrna, near the top.

Before opening, the owners retained a gourmet Mexican chef, who offered advice, resulting in a creative gourmet Mexican menu. The proof is in the "pudding." Take for example the tortilla soup - wonderfully flavorful. Or the squash pasta dish - fresh and delightful. The gyros are hearty and filled with robust flavor. Its true that the ambiance is not candlelight and music, but it has a funky, fun feel. We urge fellow New Smyrnia-ites, and our out of town visitors to give it a try.
