Way too crowded! Waiting line to get in more than 1 hr!! Small dancing floor for bachata, and for salsa still difficult to dance even tho the space was decent. Not recommended! Update 10/1/22 I have just been going to this place for the salsa (wednesdays) and bachata (sundays) For salsa, not my favorite; gets really crowded, the dancing floor is really small and the music is not that good, there's a $15 cover and lessons are included (which is nothing out of the extraordinary, Hello!) Now, for the bachata day/ night on mondays, it starts around 630ish since there's a lesson for beginners at 430 ($5 for that lesson only) and there's another lesson for intermediate at 530 ($10 extra if you took the beginners or$15 if you didn't, what a deal huh? Lol) any how, the social is free, no cover charge so if you just go straight to dancing you just get in free of charge. I went the other sunday and I have been going for a while but not until this past sunday this dude at the entrance, the one that's always bending down checking his cellphone, really tall, huge dude with beard, dark skin, speaks spanish, his name is ERICK ; he asked for my ID , which I understand it's part of the protocol BUT, and this is the part that shows the unprofessionalism, lack of education and total disrespect and sexism against the female customer: there's this other Male dude getting in and he just lets him pass by and greets him like he is any different than me (customer wise) and goes without even asking for nothing!!! I asked why and he just said he knows him!! Regardless!! Policies are policies!! (O todos coludos o todos rabones!!!) Total disrespect and sexism!! I felt humiliated and at a certain point harassed!!! That is total sexism!! Preferritism and disrespect against a paying/ consuming (drinks) female customer!! I am never again going to this place and I will make sure all my female friends do not go either! There's plenty of other places better served than this and with the same $h3+*^$ going on in regards of music and dancing. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE, ESPECIALLY WITH THIS ERIC DUDE AT THE MAIN ENTRANCE DOOR BEING A TOTAL DISRESPECTFUL JERK TO FEMALE CUSTOMERS!!!
Me and my partner both ordered 6 course brunch. His was cooked perfectly.. mine was over cooked? Maybe left under heat for extended period? Cocktails good- staff very friendly… music too loud .
Nice place for latino dance, friendly environment especially when it comes to the barista
Food is excellent yum 😋 plus the salsa dancing — what can go wrong ? ;)
What a GREAT place!!! First, be aware that this is Spanish food, not Mexican food, they have "tapas" not "nachos." Very different flavors. Sangria not Cerveza. We went on a weeknight to partake of happy hour (4:00-6:30) which has special prices on some drinks and some appetizers. Daughter was a little confused about how we were going to have "dinner" without ordering a dinner. We had several tapa plates, ordering 2 at a time and sharing. It was WONDERFUL!!! The stuffed dates were the starter, and a HUGE HIT with everyone. Papas were spicy and excellent. Had empanadas and ribs, and then I lost track. Dessert was great too, very different flavor chocolate. I had a red Sangria, very tasty, wife had a special margarita, really nice with some very spicy salt on the rim. The total bill came to about $110. Only con was we could have done without the plate of French Fries with melted cheese. Should have ordered another empanadas. Service was superb! Our waiter had a great sense of humor and seemed to always be at the table when he was needed. They have Salsa dance lessons for about $10, a couple nights a week and they have a Flamenco show on Friday/Saturday. They had a combo inside when we were there, but we couldn't hear them on the patio. The regular menu looked quite delicious, but be advised, like all restaurants these days, very pricey. Maybe I just don't get out enough. We sat outside on June 9, and were very comfortable between 4:30 and 7:00. We cannot wait to go back. Please go visit, there was no wait, and there was plenty of seating both inside and outside. I am glad we chose outside.
(Translated by Google) Good tapas, good music, good atmosphere! (Original) Buenas tapas, buenas música, buen ambiente!
They have some good meat dishes. I would stay away from seafoods and rice. Dancers are rough zombi apocalypse sprinklers. They dance like there is no tomorrow. Teachers are super good but the place is like Costco gas line, so many peeps and long lines. Respect the line or else. A lot more young male geeks than female, the unbalanced population portraits of high tech world in Irvine.
Great Spanish fusion food and they have live music 🎵🎶
Unforgettable!!!!Amazing club Amazing dancers!!
