My friend and I loved our meal here. The chef/owner/server runs a one man shop - he greets you at the door, takes your order, makes suggestions, whips up your choices in the back, and delivers it to your table. He's chatty (if he has time) and clearly enjoys providing an incredible dining experience. He creates every item on his menu personally and definitely knows what's up - anything he suggests you should order. Also - let him choose the wine; he will not disappoint.
great tuna plus chocolate mousse to die for a must try
We had a perfect dinner at Boca de Cena. First off, this place only has ONE FOH staff - he hosts, serves, and clears. He is a rockstar. We got there and were seated so that we could see out the window, at a beautiful sunset. The menu is limited - but truthfully, a limited menu means execution is typically much higher, so I don't have any issues with that. I knew I wanted the octopus, and my partner was really craving some beef so we ordered grilled prawns to start, the octopus, and roast beef. The server split everything into two and brought it out in courses, so we could share in each other's meal - it made for a much more unique experience. He also recommended a great bottle of wine to go with it the meal. He was just overall awesome! For dessert, you MUST get the pineapple tart. It's very delicious, and much less heavy than a typical chocolate dessert. Make reservations - we were able to make them same day, but we went in the off-season so it may be harder in peak times.
