I love this honest food. we ordered a platter for 4 people but it served 6 of us and we also took some home. my vegetarian friends were getting great plantains and salads. others ordered cevichi and we all shared and loved that.

Never again, I order Paella for 2, it supposed to have mussels, calamari, scallops, lobster, shrimp, it was only one very very small lobster and 6 shrimps and a lot of broccoli, and pounds of rice, I called the manager and waitress, she informed us the kitchen was running out of sea food, let me tell you something why they did inform us before....and they offer one free desert, are you kidding... This was a robbery of $42, before you order food in this disgusting restaurant make sure they have de ingredients for your plate,

Worse service ever. Food not much better.  Ambiance is lacking.  Upon entering, it looked like we were at a sweet 16 latino chick party. Not necessarily a bad thing but not what a restaurant is aupposed to look like. Napkins folded like a 5 star restaurant and salt shakers with solidsolid salt becasue there in no ac and only a couple construction fans from home depot...so, it was more humid inside than outside on a 93 degree day. BTW, restaurant 101 says add a few grains of rice to avoid clumping salt. Waitrwss took our order and evem though we were her only table, she didnt come back until we were finished eating. I asked her bith time for water which i never got but watched her fill a glass of water for herself and take it to the kitchen where she spent most her time. Another table came in to make it 2 and the waiter was on the spot for them ao i guess if the short latina is your waitress, ask for the man. We ordered chimichamgas. What we got was a grilled burrito. Totally different. It was good but dry. The house salsa is the worse ive ever had. Basically and truthfully i thought it was ketchup and water with onion.  Cos were good solo.  If i ordered a grilled burrito i would give it a 3 stars. But i ordered a chimichanga so i give it a1 star for inaccuracy.  To top it off my girlfriend insisted Tipping 20% after i was going to give the other waiter a dollar for bringing our food and our waitress  the coin change since she sucked
