The GF and I were casting about on Colorado Blvd. when we noticed this place. Decided to give it a try, and were quite pleased with the results! We wanted a small dinner item to keep us going, and the menu provided some really good...More

We liked the salsa. The two dishes we ordered were ok but not anything that would urge us to come back on a future visit. Service was not great.

My wife and I are frequent flyers at Yahaira's. The food is fantastic, the service friendly and the prices right. One of the best places in a town with lots of great choices.

My partner, our friend, and I stopped here for brunch on Sunday. We were happy to be seated outside, in the courtyard. We were happy about every bite of eggs (Benedict and in a quesadilla), every chip, every spoonful of salsa.

If you have the slightest taste for South American food, take the advice of the Tripadvisor guests here, skip the ridiculous lines at "Urth" and come to Yahaira's. Our waiter hyped the day's special, eggs over-easy on potatoes au gratin, so enthusiastically we gave in...More

I regularly come here for weekend brunch to get the special, whatever it is (secretly always hoping for the potato cake, though). Always good, the service is friendly and fast; if alone, sitting at the counter and watching the cooks is fun.

This is a small restaurant with a might good menu. The food is freshly prepared with fine ingredients. The shrimp dishes are perfection. Don't miss their empanadas or the stuffed chili. Even their chips and salsa deserve high marks. Try a glass of their homemade...More
