I had the pleasure of dining here December 1, 2023. Reservations are reccommended! Wonderful restaraunt in the heart of downtown Durham with a great food and bar menu! There were so many choices of food as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails that we had a very hard time maeking decisions. The charcuterie board and the pork belly were scrumptious. I also had a mule cocktail that was amazing. Try this place. You will not regret it!

I was expecting more. When we arrived, we ordered two cocktails, and a few minutes later, we ordered a few tapas. The tapas came out in a few minutes, but the cocktails took nearly 30 minutes. We were dining on the early side, and the place was sparsely seated at the time we ordered. In addition to our less-than-organized service, the food, for the most part, was underwhelming. The tapas were good, but just good. Both entrees we ordered were under-seasoned and mediocre. The duck confit tacos were adequate but not memorable. The beef mole was terrible. It was served as a soup and so heavily unbalanced in the direction of cocoa that it was more reminiscent of hot chocolate than beef mole. It lacked in flavor virtually any other balancing spices, and most notably it lacked salt or any hint of savory unctuousness.

Absolutely amazing restaurant in the heart of Durham. Home runs on food, service and atmosphere! Loved the little touches and recommendations from the server. We walked in and immediately felt taken care of! One of the best nights out!

Looked forward to visiting this restaurant but generally disappointed after this experience. The atmosphere was upbeat and lively,kind of noisy though. So not the place to go for a quiet meal. The decor bright ,clean with nice lighting, and actually some artwork for sale on the walls. Staff members were friendly and hospitable. However the service was really lacking. We ordered 3 appetizers. One came out. The 2nd came out 15 mins later. After 2 reminders the third one came after we had halfway completed our entrees. We refused it at that point. In addition our entrées did not come out together either. The quality of food was so-so. I found that it wasn't evenly seasoned. A chicken entrée was served with 4 whole Bay leaves on the plate, a no no. You don't eat Bay leaves. They should not have been on the plate. I dont want to be picky,but I do think that this is important. Our server had long loose hair that he was continually pulling back with his hands and then was serving drinks and meals. Really ,when serving food your hair should be covered, pinned up or put in a ponytail so that you're not constantly touching your hair. We were asked how our experience was. My response "up and down" although offered a coupon to use " when you return" I would not visit this restaurant again.

Tried this place for the first time this past weekend and it was an absolutely amazing experience! The hostess was very sweet and welcoming from the moment we walked in the door. Seating was full so we opted to sit at the bar and the full service at the bar was fast and efficient. The food was super flavorful and the cocktails were also great! Taking suggestions from the bar tender we made a few great choices and we were not disappointed! I’ve been to a number of restaurants in the downtown area and this place is definitely top 3! Can’t wait to go back!

A great, quaint restaurant! The food was more than I expected and the portion was perfect! Cocktails were beautiful and well made. Our server could have checked on us a bit sooner to take our drink order and put in apps, but it wasn't an unreasonable wait. I would definitely recommend a visit!

This place is a hidden gem. The atmosphere and decor takes you back to old Cuba. Fun and delicious cocktails based on Cuban historical figures and famous places. They have a large selection of rum cocktails as well. Small plates and entrees with Cuban, Spanish and American influences. We had the Fish with Peruvian green sauce and the Yucca gnocchi and shrimp both were delicious and just the right amount. We love the pork fritters and the fried plantains! It never disappoints.

Hands down our favorite restaurant in Durham. Food is incredible, fresh, and unique. Cocktails on point, service is fantastic. We have been for a few limited menu events including Valentine’s Day - never disappoints!
