Nothing flash about this place. It can get loud but, the food is delicious! We had the mussels appetiser, a salad, a pork burrito. All great! The paella looked good but we did not take it. The sangria is great too. Highly recommended!

That's not to say the place is not nice, it is a sit-down-and-eat place to me [unless you have to wait for table]. Fish taco was great, same for veg taco. Saltado de Maricso was very good with bits of fish, shrimp, octopus, calamari, and...More

On our way to Half Moon Bay, our friend told us that we should try this restaurant which was one of his and his wife's favorites. So glad we did! Everything we ordered was excellent which included a ceviche appetizer, seafood paella, crispy fish dish,...More

This is a tiny little Mexican/Peruvian restaurant in Pacifica on Francisco Boulevard. There are maybe eight tables inside and you may have to wait. Service is good and the food is great. They serve traditional Mexican plates, but the best is really the Peruvian dinners....More
