Mexican cuisine in the main room or the crimson red bar room. With our seasonally changing menu and our love and respect for Mexican food and culture, we strive to present a culinary experience highlighting our favorite dishes from Mexico. These are often hard to find in American restaurants and it is our goal to update these classics with the bounty of what is available in the Bay Area, serving them in a fun atmosphere where the energy is always exciting. We use organic, local produce when available, sustainably raised beef, pork and chicken, authentic items like hard to find dried chiles, huitlacoche, verdalogas and much more. We pride ourselves on serving unusual and long forgotten dishes that we have tasted and recreated from our many journeys to Mexico.

In the quaint Temescal neighborhood of Oakland, this authentic mexican food gem has been pleasing locals all day, everyday, for a long time. They have a brunch with staples like Chilaquiles with over easy eggs and a riff on the Bloody Mary. For dinner, they have american easy plates like cheese and chicken quesadillas or a more authentic slow cooked pork. Margaritas are the real deal (not too sweet)! They have a nice candle lit atmosphere and in back there is a courtyard with outdoor tables and hanging lights. Haven't been? Ok head to the East bay and check out this spot.

First to Review

The early bird diner that we are ended up here to grab a light bite and some margarita. Our entrees included enchiladas with brussels sprouts and sweet mashed potato to the crispy tostada top with black beans, epazote, and mixed greens. The food was delicious and the portion was just right. Although, the food was on the pricey side (about $20 and up) for Mexican food.

Overall, I like this place and the atmosphere. They even have outdoor seating in the back of their restaurant. As for the service, it was alright.

I see myself coming back, but not anytime soon.
