Celebrated a friends birthday here by sharing dinner. Good selection of food and drinks, friendly and attentive staff. Reasonable prices. The eatable chocolate shot cups filled with frozen 43 were a hit. Good food and great coffee.

Came here for the paella, stayed for the salsa dancing lessons. What a fun night! The Cuban style paella was beyond incredible. It was a bit busy, and we were having some issues with our waitresses and orders, but it was Cinco de Mayo.

We had an excellent meal at a slow time of day. The food was very good, as was the service. However, the drinks we had (a mojito and a mixed drink) combined the unhappy traits of not being very good and being very expensive. The...More

I was there mid-week and the dress was mostly business casual. There were some people that were quite well dressed. So a mix.
