Great Latin music with historical commentary by some true legends - the owners of Pena Pachamama! This small and intimate restaurant has a funky, indie feeling, and they really make the history of South American music come alive...from soulful ballads to crazy drum rhythms, we...More

No idea why this has 4 stars, this place is great for vegetarians, vegans or if you're like me, lactose intolerant. The staff were super friendly, the food was great and when we couldn't decide what dessert we wanted, they made a platter for us!...More

Well firstly I should say we were there as part of a food walking tour so only sampled a portion of food. It was the kale, which was not to my liking as it had a dairy free sauce on top. There were also other...More

My husband and I had such fun here tonight! Was knocked out by Cuban guest pianist Chuchito Valdés, regular Eddie Navia, and the Pachamama Band. A lot of talent and energy on that stage! The menu surprised me because I didn't expect a two sided...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.

Hi, my husband and I are visiting Moofushi in Sept 2015 and I was just wondering if there are options for vegetarians at meal times? Thanks Katie
