My wife and I had dinner here after a trip back from New York. We ate at the bar (our preference) and loved everything we ate. Highest recommendations go to the Hamachi Ceviche and the side of Plantains.

We have been to La Calaca Feliz three times. Each meal has been delicious. Ingredients are fresh, and the service is friendly . I highly recommend the fish tacos (both the tilapia and the tuna tacos ), the spicy corn side dish , the guacamole appetizer , and of course the margaritas . My only complaint is that the noise level can be high on a Saturday night .

The food and the atmosphere were outstanding. It is located on Fairmount Ave. in the Fairmount section of the city. The name means "the Happy Skeleton".

4 of us enjoyed dinner here on a saturday night - good thing we had reservations as it was very busy. The menu has some interesting items and there is a large drink menu including flights of tequila (which we did not try) and pitchers of Sangria (choice of red or white), which we enjoyed. The guacamole is freshly made and good as is the salsa that comes with the chips.
