We were looking for a place just to have a drink while walking downtown hot springs. We stumbled upon Vina Morita and at first thought it was closed because it wasn't busy, it was in the afternoon. We decided to go in their porch area that was covered/enclosed and it was a fun atmosphere. We weren't going to order any... More

A Saturday date night with my fiance and we decided to try something new. The atmosphere was casual and comfortable. We started out with a flight of margaritas and a flight of tequilas. We booked the return flight as well! The margaritas were bold and fresh. The tequilas were outstanding. For dinner my fiance had authentic lamb barbacoa tacos with... More

Friday night, not very busy, parked right outside on the street. We chose to sit outside, they had the wind screens down and the heaters were on, so it was cozy even though the night was cool. Our waitress could not get our drink orders right. It took 15 minutes to get the two beers, and the two cocktails took... More

Our group of 4 had a very nice experience at Vina Morita last evening. We participated in the Art Walk and decided on a restaurant we have not visited since they moved to their new location. All in our group agreed the food was delicious and presented well, the service was very competent and friendly, the building was pleasant and... More

We ate here this past weekend after a day at the track! The food was good. They have a lot of different salsas and specialty drinks. There was live piano music that gave a touch of class. We got there fairly early and were immediately seated without a reservation. They have a nice patio out front that is fun when... More

We have developed a pattern of visiting Vina Morita at least once a month -- for some of the most unique Mexican cuisine in Arkansas. Their specialty burritos (available as a bar food) are absolutely fantastic; as are their margaritas. We first visited Vina Morita in its original location across from the bath houses. Their new and larger location in... More

We was here in the past summer and the service and food was amazing, we decide to come back and I can't be more disappointed, food was grease, chips was old, soup was to simple and no flavor. Wine was good. We pay to much for only a couple bad appetizers. I don't think we coming back or probably we... More

Recommended by one of the locals. Great tasty salsas. We got the flat steak with chicken enchilada and mole sauce. Didn't like the enchiladas too much. Steak was great, I just wish a bigger serving for price. Great server.
