A very nice place in the mission district (next to another Mexican restaurant that I have not been to). I had the mixed grill plate that was very tasty and also a big portion. Very nice and attentive service. The only minus is the not so nice part of town it is located in.

Went for a late lunch here on NYE. Creative cooking and different takes on Mexican style of food. Great bar attached to the restaurant. Enjoyed my pork belly tacos. Yum!

There was nothing unusual on the menu other than the puffy tacos. The food was good and the service was attentive. The crab avocado dip was great.

The overall experience was very good. Starting from the spicy cocktails, via the fresh guacamole to tasty main courses. Nice atmosphere and good service. Definitely a place to come back.

I am expecting easy-to-order American food when I casually walk in this restaurant. The feeling of sophistication starts where the modern-ethnic decor brightens my eyes. The welcoming patterns on the wall warming up the room, the hanging red peppers spices up the atmosphere, the candle chandelier sheds lights on the wooden furniture. I am always interested in places that serve... More

Good food, great suggestions from our server we felt it was a good find in the Mission as travelers from Philly. We looked at a couple of places and this one really met our needs.

Dined here with a group of friends on a recent trip to SF. I was expecting great Mexican food, as usually any place in California is great. Perhaps my hopes were too high.

Neighbourhood Profile
Mission District
From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural attractions, an independent arts community, sumptuous street murals and a high density of bars and cafes make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people. While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the locals do by heading to Mission Dolores Park, buy some ice cream, and savor one of the most diverse neighbourhoods in the country.
