Delicious cheeseburger with chunky meat patty. Satisfied my craving. Came with really good chips and decent wine. Friendly service and nice atmosphere. Worth a visit.

After a case of mistaken identity at the similarly-named cafe upstairs and around the corner, I stepped down into the very atmospheric, low-ceiling coziness of Bajo La Luna. The service was courteous and prompt to serve the international crowd. Some friends had raved about the...More

I love this place. I mostly get their burgers with a great glass of wine. Opens after 7:00 PM, seating for about 30 (close friends) and the ambience is the best.

Absolutely amazing, might not be the cheapest but bar's coziness makes up for it. Music isn't too loud so you can chat with your friends without screaming, barman is really cool and nice and if it's your birthday you get a free shot (I did)....More

I had the seafood Chile Relleno and a chocolate martini, served with a cup of vegetable soup. Bottled water is extra. Inside is A/C, nice patio for cooler weather. Very nice. Wine cellar built in under the stairs.

The burgers are good, but there is too much coriander in the meat. The french fries are excellent and the waiter is nice.More

Bajo La Luna is a 1900's house's crawl space turned into a wine bar (the first one in town), we opened June 23rd, 2001. Some things have change (size, menu, etc) since then, but never the idea to own and run a bar that makes us feel like is the only place we want to be, even if its were we 'work'... Bajo La Luna's menu is an assortment of drinks and food, including our famous cheese fondue and the best burgers in town! Half-pound patties (beef, pork, beef and pork, vegetarian), fresh veggies, artisan bread and a side of hand cut fries, so yes, simply the best.
