Lovely bar/restaurant with very friendly staff. I rated 4 stars only because my fish was a bit rare and I wasn't asked how I'd liked it cooked

We frequently eat here as it is small friendly and the food is good. Had the carnitas tacos. Enough to split for two. The service is great and the drinks good.

I can't say enough about La Madre! This was recommended by the front desk of my hotel and I'm so glad it was! The margaritas are amazing - you really can't go wrong with any of the flavors! I probably tried 7-8 and they all...More

We are a small, locally owned business offering high quality meals cooked with the best ingredients. A very intimate space to enjoy lunch or dinner, and now brunch on the weekends. Fresh fruit juices, mimosas & margaritas, premium coffee and great music make this a place you don't want to miss.
