Cha Cha Cha Restaurant Review


CHACHACHA is a small hole-in-the-wall off Paradise and Sahara. I had been craving some Caribbean food and thought it would be great big find. This contemporary Caribbean Cuisine restaurant is one of the best Caribbean restaurants I have eaten, not only for the great ambience, decoration and service, but for the fantastic food and the amazing dining experiece we had.


CHACHACHA is located in West Hollywood, in the heart of Santa Monica Boulevard, great ambience and fabulous bar and beautiful people watching scene. This is a very festive restaurant, that brings you to Caribbean and makes you feel that you are on vacation having a great time. There is a great bar area, with choice of the best drinks, and of course their specialty that I could not miss: the Mojito. It was very good and I also tried the famous: Sangria! You must have this one, delicious and ideal to compliment your food.

We started with a huge and delicious tapas samplers which included: Guava and Goat Cheese Quesadilla Que Rico, Crispy Shrimp Cakes; skillet cooked with homemade tartar sauce, Banana Boats; Plantain boats filled with ground beef and vegetables served with pina salsa, Coconut Shrimp; Serrano spiced, dressed with honey and cilantro over baby greens, Gambas Negras; Jumbo Shrimp Jumbo Shrimp sautéed with their Signature Spicy Black Pepper Sauce, Yucca Con Ajo; (Fried Yucca), Fried Yucca Served with Mucho Garlic, bam! Great choice!

Sampler Platter

For our entrees our choice was: the authentic and delicious Paella Valenciana; Fresh shrimp, scallops, clams, mussels and fish, Swordfish, Grilled Pacific Swordfish with sweet onion and served with tomatillo salsa Bistec Argentino. 

Paella Valenciana

We also had the authentic Aged New York Strip With Sweet Onion
and a traditional Argentine Steak Sauce. The food was deliciously
prepared, and the desserts were devine.

Aged New York Strip With Sweet Onion

We had a wonderful dinner with great food and friendly, but professional service.
The ambiance can't be beat.

Jerk Pork Tapas

Our waitress: George Guzman also suggested that we tried the Jerk Pork tapas appetizer, which was a shredded pork tenderloin grilled with a spicy Jamaican Jerk sauce served on a tortilla, that made us feel we were in Caribbean! I would certainly recommend this one without any doubt.

       Crème Brulee                                  Unbeatable Bread Pudding!

We had a choice of 2 desserts; the Crème Brulee And The Unbeatable Bread Pudding! What a great ending for an outstanding dinner!

Chachacha has a huge variety of tapas in their menu, including Pizzas, Empanadas, Calamaris, etc,etc. and dinner is to die for! Nevertheless, the bright tastes and varied textures are reward enough! Chachacha is one of the best Caribbean food restaurant in town!

I would like to give our special thanks to Jorge and Miguel Anaya the owners of this fabulous place and also they have another Chachacha located in Silverlake, for allowing us to have such a great dining experience and a fabulous time.
