Not my favorite, but OK. Service as expected - server was informative and attentive but a bit too opinionated and I felt he was trying to steer me to what he wanted to eat. We had a tuna tostada (tostada de atun, I think) -...More

I sat at the bar for lunch and the food was great. I had the fish tacos. They were fresh and the service was great. Bartender was super friendly. And the patio looked really nice in the austin weather. Solid choice.

This place is full of locals. The food was excellent. The place is hard to find as they have virtually no signage. We sat at the bar even though many tables were empty but supposedly reserved. Well worth a visit.
