Better known for its bar fare--Bar Bruno--this place also has an authentic, and creative, kitchen that delivers finely-tuned Mexican staples. The chicken slaw fans a sweet and spicy review, and the Tortilla Soup will warm ur tummy and educate ur palette at the same time. Got to eat, and have a drink two .. or 3. House lemonade is a...

Totally love this place. A cute little bar in Brooklyn. We had fantastic margaritas and chips with guacamole. The guacamole was amazing and they served more than enough.

This restaurant should be a Brooklyn destination. The frozen margaritas rimmed in spice will bring you back every time. Then there's the mouth watering shrimp tacos, quinoa burgers, or Mexican omelets. We've come back numerous times with large and small groups, and the service inside and out was excellent. Love watching street traffic off of Henry or Union. More than... More

Sitting outside for our initial visit we enjoyed very nice house margaritas and grilled shrimp tacos with just the right amount of serrano chile, pickled onion and cabbage. Just delicious. We will definitely return to sample other items. This is perfect just for a cocktail and nibbles, as well as a sit-down full meal.

A bar restaurant with real personality. Very friendly owner and staff. Off the wall Mexican style food and excellent local ale. Look out for the huge poster of George Best.

We dropped by recently on a Sunday evening for dinner. The seating is fairly cramped, but the food was good, we were looking for light fare and enjoyed the salads and fish tacos. The service was pleasant.

My friends and I initially went to a different place which was closed for minor renovation. The owner/chef of the restaurant recommended us to try this place instead, and he was right :) I'm not 100% sure of the theme/region/main cuisine of the restaurant, but all the dishes we ordered tasted great; pulled pork sub, Mexican or somewhere in South...
