I love this restaurant. The pollo vaca
frita is the best. Now, I only like the Coral Gables restaurant. I went to the kendall restaurant and did not like the food as much. The steak palomilla was completely unseasoned.
Came for lunch with my parents while they were in town and we had a great time. We split the chicken wings and the lamb ribs and I think we all enjoyed them. I really liked my mac and cheese because it was so rich and my mom's salmon was good too. Not over done or dry which I think makes a piece of salmon really tasty.
Although we didn't have any alcoholic beverages, except wine, four of us had a wonderful spread. We tried several items on the tapas menu as well as two items from the entree list. The faves were the asparagus, brussel sprouts, corn, roasted dates, fried green tomato BLT and shrimp tacos. The least favorite was the mac & cheese (simply because it was too rich), the fish tacos (too fishy) and the desserts ( no variety). Everything else was middle-of-the-road. We thought the service was excellent and loved the al fresco dining. All of us will return to try the rest of the menu.
They have potential because they do have dishes with quality ingredients, but the flavor combinations are off the mark. The martini's are some of the worst I have had and are not properly priced on the menu. It says "martini of your choosing" or something to that extent, yet they want to charge extra for a "cosmo" and for whatever vodka you choose. I'm not talking grey goose either.. i mean smirnoff! Ridiculous.
