    2nd time here and very consistent in food quality, prep and service. Definitely a go to place for Mexican inspired cooking in a fun environment for a fair price.

    Delicious dinner as usual. Service was great. The outdoor dining experience was rough with the high temperatures. But we still had a good time. Highly recommend Clandestino.

    Great dinner! It’s a bit tricky to find with gps. It faces the park, not the street so isn’t visible from North Palm Dr. Just walk around and it is on the back side of the building. It has great outdoor seating with misters and umbrellas making it very comfortable even on a hot day. The service was super friendly and efficient. The food: delicious appetizers, I now wnt to go back and try them all. The avocado tempura bites were incredible creamy avocado slices inside a crisp and tasty fried batter, and the taquitos were crunchy with a tasty bean filling. The shrimp tacos were just right- nicely prepared and not overdone with unnecessary ingredients- the flavors were shining through. The fajitas were very generous and delicious- super comfort food taken up many notches. The trip of quesadillas was also delicious and nicely varied between the 3 styles. Overall an excellent visit and we’ll be back again.

    Started with the beautiful presentation of the margarita flight - interesting and delish. The squash blossoms and beef empanadas were special. Service by John, pleasant and attentive.

    The three of us dining were very disappointed in our entrées. That seems to be a common experience among those I know who have eaten at Clandestino’s. The streetwise menu, and the appetizers are tremendous. But when it comes to large plates and main dinners excellence seems to disappear.
