We had an amazing time. The food, staff and ambience are great. The cocktails are very good. The best Mexican restaurant I have been to. We also went back for brunch before catching our flight back home .

The restaurant is beautiful with a great atmosphere (was very busy despite being a Wednesday night) and the staff were very welcoming. I had the jackfruit tacos which were delicious. Can’t wait to be back in LA so I can eat here again!
