908 Congress Ave. Houston, TX 77002 | Downtown/ Midtown | 713-224-9500

Location Description:

As part of the ongoing Market Square revitalization, Batanga is poised to become a lasting part of the hip, new downtown bar and restaurant scene. Intriguing flavor combinations packed into small plates make Batanga a fun place to try new things, and a few old standbys like steak and mushroom dishes are given the respect they deserve. With a large, welcoming back patio and live music most nights of the week, it's a great place to hang out with friends and share small tapas plates with the entire table. The cocktails are also good, if a little sweet, and the service comes with a smile and perhaps a good-natured wisecrack or two. While Batanga may not be the best place for Spanish or Latin food in town, it's a great spot for parties or dates, and the patio is poised to be one of the best in Houston once the weather is cooler and the nights just a little shorter.
