After ordering we had all of our appetizers and entrees with 15 minutes which was very surprising considering how busy they were. We ordered 5 tacos, the salsa duo and the Mexican Street corn which were all pretty good. I definitely think it's a very aesthetic restaurant but the only downside for me is that I personally can't really justify spending $5+ on one small and basic taco when I've had more authentic/better tasting for less. Total cost was $40 for 5 tacos, street corn, a basket of chips and dip, and one sweet tea (which really isn't terrible but the portion sizes definitely scream tapas). Despite my hangup on the overall value of the menu items I would still recommend it for something looking for a spot with simple food.

Most of the sitting is outdoors but they have it so it is heated when cold and have fans when hot. the menu has many options and was able to order multiple dishes. the tacos were delicious, and so was the quesadilla. Well, pretty much anything that had the barbacoa was fenomenal and I highly recommend it. The drinks were good too. The service was nice. We did have a birthday and there was no complementary dessert or something. We still had a great night and we will come back again.

First, let me say the staff were cordial, friendly and efficient. From the hostess to our waitron, everyone had a smile on and an aim to please. As for the food, we ordered four dishes to share. Perhaps three would have been sufficient but then we would have missed a delicious dish. We had the queso with guacamole, the baked half cauliflower with a cheese and pesto covering, the grilled skirt steak with a marvelous topping and a shrimp and tomato dish served over grilled garlicky baguette slices. Everything we tasted was fresh, cooked properly and presented beautifully. Also, there is an extensive cocktail menu priced very fairly. There is also beer and wine. This was our first time dining here and we will most definitely return! Looking forward to trying other dishes. I highly recommend!!

The service was very good. It was quick and efficient without feeling rushed. The food was very good. Great selections. My spouse and I are wine drinkers. We like that there’s a House Cab, which is very good.

Amazing menu recommendations, extremely knowledgeable and kept the drinks flowing promptly. Amazing personality! Give him a raise!! Only thing I’m sad about is we got one of the last apple crumbs for dessert, should definitely be a year round menu item it’s so delicious. Complements to the chef!

We ate numerous items from the tapas menu. Nothing was particularly flavorful. It was all very average. Nothing outstanding. Not the memorable meal that we had hoped for. We had the Serrano ham Mac and cheese, queso dip, Mexican street corn, goat cheese fritters, and pork carnitas. One exception was the margaritas. Excellent.

The food is so good. The ambiance is energetic and fun. Never a dull moment, never boring. The servers have amazing rapport with the guests. It’s my favorite spot in Atlanta to spend an evening out with friends. Absolute favorite.
