This small restaurant has a great big thumbs up. The food is authentic, plentiful and downright delicious. The Vaca Frita and Ropa Vieja are out of this world. I am personally not a fan of rice and beans but finished the entire portion. Even the...More

Not much to add to the many 5 star reviews, except they are right on the money. Great food and mojitos, lovely staff. Looks like nice, outdoor seating, but not today in Seattle! It can get crowded, and it’s not a huge restaurant.

My boyfriend lives right by mojito and we finally tried it last night. It was hands down one of the best meals I've ever had in the Seattle area. Staff was super friendly, the mojitos and caprihinas were fantastic, and the food was delicious. Ask...More

A true hidden Gem...!!! Locals don't even know about this place, simply because of it's "Secret" locale, right off Lake City Way where it starts on the south end. The Mojitos here are top notch and very strong, but delicious. The Ceviche appetizer has got...More

We stumbled upon this place Sunday afternoon when we were just looking for a snack and an afternoon drink. They had a cute little patio and it happened to be happy hour! (Thurs-Sun 3pm-6pm) We each had a cocktail and a Modelo, which were both...More
