Description: Some guys are born curious. They can't just wonder what's around the corner. They've got to go see for themselves. The Greers are like that with food. You might call them culinary explorers. You might run into Lee tracking the true cubano in a Tampa barrio, the perfect pork chop in a Rio churrascaria. Phil sweet talking the secret of sweet corn tamales out of an ancient abuela in a Yucatan taqueria. One or both hot on the trail of the tastiest brisket taco. The most piquant Peruvian ceviche. The most authentic salsa. Margaritas that'll make you want to mambo. Whatever wows them on their travels, they bring right on back home. To wow you at Coba Cocina, Cobar Cantina, and Cocoh! Confectioner.

Great food. Loved the decor. The live jellyfish were amazing! Prices were very reasonable. Restaurant looks like something from Vegas, very nice.

“Fun”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

I love going here because of the atmosphere. They pumped a lot of money into this place and it shows. I like their presentation and there is always a lot of people there. Great drink menu with a lot of different options. The salsa menu is a little twist that you normally don't get at mexican places. Guac is great! Would recommend but it is not close to many places.

“Feels Like Miami, FL”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Very nice restaurant, not what you would normally find in Lexington. Kind of reminded me of high end restaurants I've been to in Disney World or Universal Studios. All the decor is over the top. The food was good. I had the Yucatán plate (burritos) and my wife had the seafood tacos. We were both happy with our meals. The chips & salsa were outstanding, and the homemade guacamole was very good. The service was also very good, and the prices aren't bad.

“some of the best food ever”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

First time in this restaurant. I live that the place has romantic blue lights all around the place. I also liked the large jelly fish tank column in the middle of the restaurant. The food was amazing. I tried the fajita picante with pollo and carne. The sauces had a lot if kick. Just the way a southerner likes them. I recomend this place for any type of date night.

“Amazing ambiance and good food and drinks”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Love original decor and jellyfish tank. Seems like someplace you'd see at Disney! We know manager and he's awesome. Food was excellent, reasonably priced and had different kinds of drinks. I ordered a Jalapeno Martini and to my surprise, i liked it. Ambiance at night totally changes. Has bar upstairs that opens at 4pm and separate dessert bar. You must check out bathrooms as well with all the tile and funky jelly floor.
