Our brunch was outstanding, would definitely go back and have already recommended it. Food had a nice spice kick but overwhelming, our waitress was helpful in deciding what to order and no one was disappointed. The tortilla soup is a must try

La Parra is one of the very few restaurants I frequent. Their drinks are good and their food is even better. I know that when I visit La Parra the experience will be sensational.

Maya has upped its game. Years ago, my experience was mid-high on the appetizers. mid on the main plates. High on the drinks and mid on atmosphere. Again, that was years ago. This recent dining experience renews my faith in other peoples comments that Maya is back on top!! Atmosphere, Appetizers, Main Plates, Drinks and Service all great.

This place was AMAZING! It gave downtown service vibes in Cicero. Definitely a great place to go for a nice romantic, family or group dinner. Decor is a great, and there’s a beautiful flower background for those pictures, even some swings. The food is 10/10! The empanadas are definitely a must try! The prawns, the octopus and steak meals were seasoned to perfection and mouth watering! Definitely chef’s kiss!
