They nailed it with the jerk chicken omelette and chilaquiles. Great beans and rice. Great people and authentic vibe.!!

My daughter took me here while visiting her. This is an amazing breakfast place. Ginormous portions, and deliscious! I would love to try for other than breakfast. My daughter has only gone for breakfast.

I went here for lunch with 4 colleagues and everyone enjoyed their food. From the veggie plate, sweet corn tamales to the jerk chicken and shredded jerk chicken pork. the food was excellent. The service was good. We stayed for some time chatting and taking care of business while we had a relaxing lunch. The atmosphere is casual dining in... More

Cha Cha Cha is so much fun to visit and eat at. Wonderful Puerto Rican food (I think?) with a vibrant atmosphere. I'd love to go back! And featured in the first Fast and Furious movie as well!

Had the best sweet / spicy corn tamale here. Has a variety of tasty food, nice quiet place and friendly staff. We always order the appetizer platter (can't remember the name) with a variety of delicious food and tamale on side with the grilled plantains. The picture I posted does not justice but believe me it taste way better than... More

Found this cute spot on my Happy Hour app, and was surprised to find there is no bar, and no real cocktails. Charming decor, but we were seated at a small table next to other diners, when we had just gone in for a drink. Turns out their drinks are made with soju or agave wine. The margarita tasted vaguely... More

This unsuspecting restaurant is tucked away in the middle of Los Angeles, not far from Griffith Park, Hollywood, and Downtown. They have excellent cuisine from all around the Caribbean, from Jerk Chicken to Chuletas to Paellas. Great food, their rice uses real saffron, plantains are crispy and sweet, all their food is great. Their Paellas are delicious. A small decent... More

I never had tapas before. So I have nothing to compare this restaurant with. That being said, the food was excellent. Four of us went and I was the only newbie. Everyone else loved the food. We went a bit overboard with our order. From Jerk Pork to Jerk Chicken Pizza. Everything was tasty and overall excellent. We tried a... More

Recommended by a biz associate of ours. We arrived at about 7:30PM and it was still happy hour so we had terrific sangria and a guava and cheese quesadilla and dirty chips and salsa. All were terrific. We had an amazing paella. We would recommend all. Not an easy place to get to - and you eat on oil cloth.... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
