We searched internet and took a leap of faith and it paid off! Had lunch brunch time. Child platter hardy and servings overall were ample and pleasing. Flavors reminded of home Miami Cuban Food. My dish strayed from the Cuban staples but echoed and reminded...More

The food is here is delicious and they have a bomb happy hour menu. It's never really dead there's always some sort of crowd or people at the bar. Service is great, friendly and attentive. Bathrooms are clean, nice breeze blowing throughout. I recommend when...More

The plantain chips with tamarind sauce, served as an appetizer, were my favorite part of the meal. I had the flavorful pork with a side of plantains. Delicious. Great place to people watch and close to the beach.

Potentially a great place to eat, although the food wasn't in any way above ordinary. It was tasty, it was what was promised on the menu, but still just managed to be ok without being special or memorable. You'd probably dine here more for the...More

This is a popular restaurant and has good food. We did not have to wait too long to get in though. Prices were not crazy high. The truffle fries were very good as was the burger and the bean soup.Wait staff was friendly and efficient.

We came off the beach and found this cute place a few blocks up Washington. Outside seating was great for the perfect day. Good drinks and food made for a lovely lunch.

This place is a popular mainstay and I got to say hello the perpetually ageless, attractive, and affable Mercedes. My chicken tostada lunch was just great! Also, the new bartender, Patrick, is a well-known and popular restaurant pro from the Marina. He is a great...More

We've walked by this place numerous times thru the years and finally decided to give it a try. We ordered the grilled fish tacos and the citrus salmon. Both came with black beans, rice, and plantains. Both meals were excellent. We dined al fresco and...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
