Lovely little Latin restaurant that I wouldn't have thought would be as good as it was. We'll definitely go back. Nice flavorts and interesting selection. Really nice salads, and our 13 year old nephew-- who is not adventuresome -- enjoyed his pasta meal, which was...More

Vibe is of a cozy neighborhood place, but good to know before you go that prices are in the fancy night out range (I've only eaten there for dinner). The food was very good.

Located in a south Minneapolis neighborhood, La Chaya offers fine dining. The restaurant is located on a busy corner but they have done a good job with lanscaping and metal works outside the restaurant, that gives more the feel of being in a garden. The...More

Very delicious, unusual food in a lovely place. Had lunch there and had a hard time choosing from the menu--everything sounded great! Mediterranean meets Mexican meets Italian. Lots for vegetarians to eat here as well! A bit pricey but worth it!

Second review from a year ago. Chef Tony has changed it up a little. Wonderful patio if weather permits, dog friendly as well. Service was exceptional as usual. We tried the Caribbean salad, nice texture and very fresh. Next was the calamari with shrimp, nice...More
