Latin American
Our family's story in Texas begins on Lymbar Drive where Robert and Dora Cordua moved from Managua, Nicaragua. There, multiple generations and parties with wine, whiskey, rich food, music and chimichurri perfumed the walls. We invite you to experience our heritage, our hospitality and our roots in the city of Houston. We are an all day neighborhood craft cocktail bar and open theatre kitchen specializing in latin and mediterranean small plates and shareables. No rules. Good greenergy. Buenas vibras.

    The food here was great! We brought our daughter and her friend here for dinner before prom. The menu has some cool twists on old favorites. We really loved the decor and vibe of the place, and the live saxophone and piano were a really nice touch. Lots of cool spots to take pictures. Service was pleasant and quick. Food was served hot, and ingredients tasted fresh. Not sure why this place is not busier than it was for a Friday night. We'll definitely be back soon. We had the lobster roll twinkies, plantain chips, spinach empanadas, salmon, bucatelli pasta with shrimp, cheeseburger, and tres leches, and all were fantastic!

    Delicious food - liked everything we tried - plantain chips and beef taco starters were a bit hit.

    What a lovely lunch experience. We enjoyed salads and ceviche. I had shrimp with my salad and they were fresh, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. The salad was an inventive combination of sweet potato, beets and labneh. The restaurant is visually appealing with cozy, comfortable seating. Wait staff was attentive.

    Loved the space, but not the location. Did not feel comfortable parking the car there at night. The live piano music was very nice. The service was meh. Our waitress had the personality of a fence post. We had to wave someone down several times to get our water glasses refilled. Ordered a martini and asked for no vermouth. When it came, it had vermouth. Another ordered a gin martini with onions and it came out with olives. The shrimp in the paella was overcooked. The lamb chops and the red fish were good. The ceviche was the only thing we ordered that was delicious. It would have been nice if it came with some kind of chip to eat it with. Had to spend $8 to get the chips. Will not be going back.
