We had late lunch here and booked in advance. Food wasn't the best but the staff were really friendly. We ordered the fresh guacamole, which is a must because it was the best off the menu. I had the taco's for main, but there wasn't...More

Three of us had lunch here on a Sunday. We ordered the large guacamole which was very delicious and came with some sauces to spice it up. Actually -a medium order would have sufficed for three people. We enjoyed the chips and salsa. Beers were...More

Food wasn’t the best but the staff was nice and the location is great. I would go again if I was ever in the area but wouldn’t go out of my way.

A great place to eat if your on a budget in NYC. Their Burrito is rateable to even the Mission in SF. This place was one of the highlights of our trip. Greenwich Village chic.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
