My wife had been to Caliente Cab on a previous visit and wanted to return on Cinco de Mayo, so we went.It was a relatively small place, so it was understandably packed which may cloud my impression a bit. We were able to get drinks, but had to keep moving around as we stood as we were definitely in the... More

I stopped with friends for some drinks after dinner. The drinks are large, and the sangria is home made, and very strong! Always friendly people at the bar

I liked the food except the Nachos...$8.50 I would instead order guac or chips salsa. Rest of our order was delicious, I loved the corn on the cob. we were seated outside so dont know about the interior, the service was timely and just the right size portions. I would visit again.

The location can't be beat and the food is terrific. I find the place to be too dimly lit, the wait staff pushy, the prices high (no free salsa) and the chips so salty that you can't help but order a drink (by design, no doubt). I wish this place had a bit more trust in its own goodness and... More

We ate a quick lunch and had a few beers on the sidewalk last week in March on a particularly sunny day. Food was good (if not slightly overpriced - guacamole was over 8dollars). Anyway the reason I would not come back here is because the owner/manager who stands outside welcoming guests also spends his time kicking unwanted rubbish from... More

They have "smoothies" - or what we call frozen margaritas, or margaritas on the rocks in every imaginable flavor. They are amazing and fresh - definitely refreshing. They have outside seating which is fun on a nice day, good people watching. I had the ceviche which was fresh and light, excellent. If you eat inside it is a little dark... More

The food is pretty decent, and the prices are decent. The place has indoor and outdoor seating. But this trip the service was pretty horrendous! We had to wait and ask for everything Food took forever, and waiter kept ignoring tables, ours included, couldn't get water, couldn't get drinks. Even when we complained to the management staff, he still couldn't... More

Very attractive restaurant, spacious with great window views of Bleecker Street in the village. I chose the vegetarian omelette which I really enjoyed. My margarita was good also. The brunch comes with two drinks. The waiter was nice, helpful and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone who likes Mexican food. I will definitely go back here.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
