Looking for something different. This place is totally cool, great drink menu and handcrafted drinks (aka means be patient) and very friendly patrons. Didn't eat here but the menu options were unique too. Worth a try next visit.

I love fish tacos but only when the fish is grilled. Theirs are usually fried but they grill the fish upon request. They were really good. My friend loved her steak tacos and returned for these at a later time. They have a Sangria of...More

If you're in to Caribbean food, then I guess this is the spot. I'm not, so my meal (steak tacos) was just ok. The server was a very nice young lady who answered all my questions about the dish and ensured it came out the...More

Three of us ended up at Pirata completely by accident, randomly saw it while looking for a decent meal at Market Square. We had never heard of it, but the menu looked interesting. We were promptly greeted and seated on a busy night. The first...More
