Awesome Happy Hour, Great for Dinner – Azuca is one of my favorite places. While their entrees are great, the appetizers and drinks are the best. Definitely stop by for happy hour - the mojitos are great and their house wine is awesome for the happy hour price. I went with a friend and had several appetizers and drinks during happy hour and spent less than 25 dollars. Everything is delicious.
Great atmosphere! – Azuca is in a great eclectic section of San Antonio. The restaurant has a wonderful vibe and the Azuca bar next door looked like it would have been a lot fun. My boyfriend and I ordered Gaucho soup. It was one of the tastiest soups I've ever had! My mojito, which I heard they are known for, was close to perfect. I wasn't ecstatic about the appetizer platter we ordered, but I will definately go back and order something else. Our waiter was fantastic our entire night! We left halfway through our meal and I had hardly touched my mojito because I didn't feel very well and he took the mojito off of our ticket without us having to ask. I'll definately come back here next time I'm in San Antonio and try to go to the bar as well.
Moderately priced Caribbean and Latin American cuisine served in a beautiful setting with a side of salsa dancing. – The Scene
Couples and families make up the bulk of the clientele in the always-buzzing dining room, while singles rule at the bar. The restaurant and bar are separated by a narrow and often crowded breezeway. Lighted columns and a quartz-like border on the bar imbue the room with an otherworldly glow.
The appetizer sampler is popular in the bar for its light assortment, including tender crab cakes and coconut shrimp. A delicious side, the mofongo is a lumpy mixture of mashed plantains served with pork rinds. The parillada mixta is a meat-lover's delight, with beef, chicken, pork and sausage in chimichurri sauce. Those with more modest appetites should try the pork loin carioca, which is caramelized and served over mashed boniato, a Cuban variety of sweet potato. Keep the sugar buzz alive with caramelized banana crepes, warm bananas wrapped in thin crepes and drizzled with orange sauce.
