Cha Cha Cha is an institution in Haight Ashbury. Definitely a great place to get a pitcher of Sangria and their food is great too. Most of their dishes that we've had have been amazing. The mussels, calamari, arroz con pollo, rice and beans, quesidillas,...More

Great food and fun atmosphere! The Sangria is a must order drink. We loved the mussels and the plantine with black beans. Perfect place to unwind if you are with a group of friends.

Love, loved our server - she actually works the bar -can't recall her name- but she takes her job seriously! I do not like hot spicy and avoid pork - difficult to help me out out a Cuban place, but help she did. She stirred...More

We tried Cha Cha Cha as, whilst on Haight Street, a man told us that Bobby McGhee and Janis Joplin once spent a consecutive 64 hours playing draughts at the bar. There was no sign of draughts in the modern venue, however, Service and price...More

My husband and I walked to Cha Cha Cha after an afternoon at the DeYoung Museum. Beautiful one mile walk that included a stroll through the rhododendron garden in Golden Gate Park. We both had the evening special of Blackened Salmon. It was beyond expectations....More

We arrived right at the 5:00 PM opening and within an hour the restaurant was full. We had an incredible meal with great atmosphere and Sangria second to none. The staff were very friendly and efficient.

I live in Central Florida, and we have a lot of Cuban cuisine available. My daughter and I stopped in for lunch as Cha Cha Cha, and both ordered chicken and yellow rice. Very good, the equal of what I am used to. A fortunate...More

The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and
Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of
the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage
clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops.
While the Summer of Love ended decades ago,
Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of
hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through
its streets can still feel like stepping back in time.
