Not enough good things to say about this place. I have had almost all the dishes, and each one is very good, and very tasty. The plates are small (they are tapas), and consequently one has to order many in order to get a full meal. But being that tapas are all the rage right now, I like this place as a nice alternative to Cesar in Berkeley and Oakland. As I said already - the food is VERY good. Each bite is full of flavor, and the ropa vieja is incredible. So good, I wish I could have just paid extra and gotten a bowl of this delicious shredded beef stew. Atmosphere is nice too, and I have been there with 2 people, and with several, and it was good both ways, although you benefit more from having a larger party, so that you can order more, and try more of the dishes. The only negative thing (and to anyone who eats tapas, this is HUGE) is that they do not have a liquor license, and therefore only offer a very limited number of wine/champagne based drinks. I cannot understand how someone could open such a great place, and not realize that if you are doing CUBAN FOOD, there NEEDS TO BE RUM! If they can get this one detail sorted out (buy the license already), then this place will be king. But I don't know how anyone can eat tapas and not want a glass of sherry, or brandy, or rum. So if the alcohol part is secondary, then definitely go here. If you want great tapas AND the best alcohol selection this side of the Mississippi, go to Cesar. Actually the owner of La Taza should take a cue from that spot, and attempt to create as diverse a selection of alcohol as they have. Plus La Taza needs to know - great food may bring people in, but great alcohol will keep them there. None the less, go eat here.
Pros: VERY tasty tapas/antojitos.
Cons: NO LIQUOR LICENSE!
