I had my birthday party at Cafe Condesa last friday and had a blast. They were kind enough to accomodate 12 of us, we shared appetizers: goat cheese salad, the delicious dungeness crab and cobb salads. Then I tried the beef Wellington and I have to say it was the best beef I´ve had in months! The place is small and super cozy, staff is great, kind enough to recommend wines and send some sample of dishes. The two young waitress that served us were extremely nice and smiley. So in conclusion: two thumbs up for this new place on th West Village.

I absolutely loved this place. My partner and I have been there on two occassions and have left with a big smile and very satisfied. For starters the feel of the place is warm and cozy. The Chef, who is also one of the owners, came to our table to make sure everything was ok. Well it was more than ok. The food was amazing. You only expect to find this type of meal at very exclusive, and not say veryexpensive restaurants elsewhere in new york city. We had the crabmeat with asparagus and the halibut and were really extremely pleased. When we thought things couldn't get any better we ordered dessert. It was just enough to finish this tasty meal and was absolutely mouthwatering. I know that very soon this place will have lines out the door so we plan to keep going back very frequently. We loved the food and for the price, it just can't be beat. Very highly recommended.

This place is absolutely so cute, you won't be able to stand it. very small and chic, with live spanish guitarist made my dinner partner and i very hopeful. however, don't come here hungry. Price to plate ratio did not add up- for one dish, the portion was smaller than tapas. Pasta dish was slightly larger, but nothing i couldn't make at home. would come here for a glass of wine and the sweet feel... but not a meal.

This is an absolutely adorable, cozy place in the West Village. A charming European feel and good service. Be prepared for small portions of delectible fare. The tortellini was mouth-watering but left us wanting more. Two of us shared three entrees and although the bill was under $30, we left seeking dessert because the only one offered was creme brulee. We suggest trying the Goat Cheese Salad and the Halibut. If you're going in the summer, wear a light gingham smock and bring a portable personal handheld fan. It gets super hot when you are basically sitting in the kitchen.

Four of us went out to Cafe Condesa and we walked away smiling and raving about it. The dishes were perfect for sharing and each was more scrumptious than the next. The staff was friendly and enthusiastic, the location can'r be beat. And what a pleasant surprise when we got the bill... With wine, apps, and dishes like braised halibut and asparagus w/crabmeat, it came out to approx. $28 per person. I highly recommend eating here before the line is out the door!

I live around the corner from Cafe Condesa and stop in frequently for a fresh croissant, coffee, and a chat with the owners. Last night I hosted a private birthday party there and chose a fixed price meal from the menu. The food was terrific and the owners, who are at once the chef, server and wine steward, could not have been more gracious and generous. We had the goat cheese galette salad, the salmon with spinach, aparagus and avocado, and the albondigas with Spanish rice, paired with sparkling, white and red wine. This is such a wonderful place, a real treasure full of heart, soul and fresh intercontinental cuisine. The value cannot be beat. What a wonderful corner of the world in NYC!

Walking on 10th St and 7th Avenue I found this amazing full of character small restaurant that apparently just opened 2 weeks ago. It could be tuff to find it but once you do, don’t hesitate to try it. The ambience created by the young wait staff is great. They didn’t have wine or liquor yet but it did not stop our group from enjoying the food and having a great time I will definitely recommend it.
