My girlfriend told me about this place and we went there for dinner last Saturday. It is a very nice place. They have happy hour from 4-7 on Saturday. It is most mexican/spanish. some of the dishes were a little spicy for me but if you like spicy you will like this place.

Great Mexican spot in the Arts District not too far from downtown. Guac was fresh and amazing. Molè was muy authentico! Our party had a great time, and especially enjoyed the blood orange margaritas. We'll be back.

We ate dinner here and it was yummy!! We ordered the guacamole appetizer and it was great!! I had the Pollo al Ajillo which was chicken and fresh, diced, stir-fried veggies and it was outstanding! The bread pudding for dessert has it's own twist and was fantastic! Thoroughly enjoyed!!!

Thought this placed looked nice and had good reviews but think its a bit over rated, its not bad its just not anything special either. Also you have to go through a bit of a dodgy part of town to get there

I crave this food now. I want to drive to L.A. just to have dinner here. It doesn't get better. The food and service is excellent!!! Wish them much success but hope it doesn't get overrun once people realize what a great place this is. Also, hope that their success doesn't lead to greater gentrification that displaced the homeless and... More

Came here for lunch with friends. We loved our chips and salsa and had to order more! I ordered the mahi mahi fish tacos. I highly recommend them. They are phenomenal!!! I really like the refreshing Aguas frescas . I will be back and try something new . Everything on the menu looked delicious!

We enjoyed an outstanding group lunch with about 18 participants. The meal began with chips, salsa and guacamole. Everything tasted fresh and made to order. The chips were unusual and unique. The salsa was a chipotle salsa which also tasted unique with just the right amount of heat. The guacamole was seasoned perfectly and incorporated pumpkin seeds - very interesting.... More

Would have gotten 5 stars but the desert portion was a joke! My office ordered from a designated menu which included desert. The food was good (i got the tacos) but the desert portions came on one plate for about 5 people. I was expecting each person to have their own and was disappointed when i was told the 4... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
