This restaurant is the fancier of the two Cuban restaurants in San Mateo. The appetizer portions were plentiful but I was very disappointed in the yellow rice and chicken. It was overpriced for the amount of food served and on top of it they served...More

Beans and plantains and rice and beer. What could be better? Great service. Lovely little spot. Lots of small plates and larger plates as well. Grilled salmon is pretty spectacular too. Prices are ok. Nice spot.

My wife and I have come back several times and wonder when the crowds are gonna find this place. The food deserves more than a smattering of customers. Good Food, Great value... Several of the dishes burst with new flavors which pull you back again...More

Yummy! We were looking for a fun tapas place nearby and stumbled upon Cha Cha Cha. The restaurant seemed very quiet during the dinner hour but we went for it anyway. The small plates were good but nothing exceptional. The camarones el ajillo had no...More

This little gem is fun for a quick date. Not your white tablecloth date, however, as it's very casual. Close in to movies and a lot of the action in San Mateo. The food is a nice update on many Cuban favorites. Not all spicy,...More
