This is a charming cafe, including some outdoor seating, with a Caribbean vibe. Lots of rum drinks; I had some kind of rum punch which was fairly sweet - in a fruity way, not cloying, but still sweet. I had three small plates for dinner. The first course was fried plantain strips, with guacamole and a sort of salsa. The plantains were really good, then and crunchy. I wish there had been more guac and salsa to put on them. Then I had two hot items: the jumbo garlic shrimp and a vegetarian empanada. The shrimps were really good - four very large ones, in a bath of garlic/herb butter. The empanada was OK -- the crust was a bit thick and dry (I guess that's how empanadas are supposed to be) and the filling was kind of boring. I know there was some pumpkin in there, and probably some kind of legumes, but it just didn't have much character. I found dipping the empanadas in the garlic butter from the shrimps worked pretty well, even if that wasn't what the chef intended! Service was pleasant and helpful.
