1st off this place is (as Guy F would say) funky but a good funky. It is small but the staff is friendly and the food is off the hook good. If you are in Richmond and have the time treat yourself.

Had to wait about five minutes just to be acknowledged, but it was all uphill from there. Service was great, ambience was great, food was amazing! Such great blends of flavors. Highly recommend. Go early - it's small.

Being a vegetarian, I had to have the vegetarian paella. Huge portion with artichoke hearts, peas, potatoes, tomatoes, red peppers , okra and avocado. A little salty but delicious none the less. Had the spinach and ricotta cheese empanadas, awesome.

The food was a bit on the dry side though still tasty. The tortilla (omelette) was huge. Great ambiance and something different than the same old food fair makes it worth a stop.

Tried this restaurant since I wanted some Ropa vieja and cortadito. To my surprise they had a lunch menu that was yummy and not to expensive. I decided for the shredded pork with rice and beans including Platanos. The meal was divine finishing with a...More
