It's difficult to find restaurants that will cater to small parties for events with and price-per-person menu options AND offer top-notch cuisine! I wanted a small dinner party for my husband's milestone birthday with a pre-selected menu so that everyone could spend more time visiting...More

Probably the best carne-asada tacos I ever had, prime ingredients, quesadillas and guacamole were delicious, too. The service was great as well. Price was reasonable for and in line with the quality of the dishes.

We dropped in for a quick bite on Saturday afternoon. The tamales and ceviche were really good as were our Margaritas. Our bartender was helpful and entertaining.

We rang to book a table on a Monday night just to be sure. But had no trouble getting a table for two. Great service, great food, the lobster was fantastic as was the guacamole. Some of the best Mexican food we have had.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
