I've lived in this neighborhood for 5 years and had never visited this place until yesterday. I went with my bf and planned to use our groupon voucher for a dinner take-out. My first impression was that this place looks like a tiny dive

Pros: Hot Bartender, Friendly staff, Wine, Beer, Cuban Sandwiches.

Cons: music too loud sometimes, but ok.

This is one hot spot you do not want to miss. The food , service is great and the SANGRIAS are off the hook. I truly enjoy Happy Hour. Music - live or Dj is great. They need to bring Camaradas to the West side of 115th Street.

My cousins have told me about this place for months. They had gone there on Thursdays to see a Puerto Rican band that plays hard-core ?jibaro? music. Well, I finally went and it was amazing! The place is owned by local Latinos that went a long way to nurture all the greatness of ?El Barrio,? a.k.a. Spanish Harlem. My boyfriend appreciated the rustic decor (exposed brick, lots of dark wood and corrugated metal), which he described as ?working class? even before learning that it was intentionally designed that way. The lively crowd reminded me of family gatherings. It took a while for the waiter to notice us once we found a corner to sit down. The place was crowded, however, even though the featured band, Tato Torres y Yerbabuena, had not even set up yet. Once we got the menu I wanted to try EVERYTHING! Seeing things like Mofongo de Chorizo ($10) or something called a Jorge Platter (churrasco and grilled chicken with cheese sauce, $13) made my discipline work overtime. We started with a pitcher of sangria that was to die for ($30, $15 during Happy Hour). We then shared an order Do?a Maria?s Alcapurrias (yuca meat-filled fritters, $9) and Spicy Calamari ($11.50). Finally the band set up and began to play. It was electrifying. The music was like a magic spell calling you to come closer and shake your bones. Just as I was about to excuse myself to ?go to the bathroom? (take a closer peak at the band), the food finally came. My boyfriend ordered a monstrosity called a Barrio Burger ($9.50 w/ cheese). This was something out of the Flintstones, it was huge! When I grabbed a bite I couldn?t believe how delicious it was. I settled with a Chicken Wrap with Avocado ($7.50) which fooled me into thinking I was behaving, although I couldn?t really forget the tasty alcapurrias. Overall, we had a great time, even with the long wait for service and cold draft from the front doors. This is definitely a new destination and I look forward to seeing what their other nights are like.

Pros: great ambience, incredible food

Cons: long wait for service at times, drafty doors/ windows

I went because a friend goes there afterwork for the happy hour pitchers of sangria (1/2 off $30 reg.price). They have art work by local artists that changes regularly and have live music on several nights. The crowd is mixed, generally mid to late 20s and 30s but not pretentious. This place is a sign of the gentrification that is happening in Spanish Harlem, but it's still an early sign. The food is good, tried the Amarillos (maduros) that were good (they're hard to do poorly) and a platter that had food I didn't recognize but was good and the Mofongo that was good but needed a bit of salt. I also tried the hummus but didn't really enjoy it, they seem to make it w/olives, which I'm not a fan of. The sangria was indeed good. Four of us shared the appetizer type food and a pitcher of sangria, the total was a little under $90 - you do the math. I'll be back.

Pros: Ambiance, front doors open for quasi outdoor seating

Cons: sorta scary people hanging out front
