The food was ok, but it too forever to come. We were the only two people in the restaurant around 8:00 pm and the food took wayyyy to long. The server was nice and when if finally did come, the food was decent.

We loved the food. It taste better than Mexican restaurants do in the states. The service was good as well. Prices were reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area.

If you are craving Mexican food while on vacation in St. Maarten, Tequila is your place. I was very surprised by how tasty the food was, especially after the limited menu the restaurant offered. There aren't a ton of choices, but when the food is this tasty who needs 40 choices on the menu? I ordered the Chicken Quesada, which... More

We found this place a much better Mexican resturant than JIMBO's and much better pricing. Great view of the lagoon as well. Lots of food for the money.

Food and drinks were great. I felt bad for our waitress. She had to keep running up and down the stairs to serve us. We will definitely return.

We went here on a Thursday night and we were the only people in the restaurant. We weren't sure if that was a good thing or not. It turned out to be a great thing. We got great service and the food was also great. The servings were very large. I had veggie fajitas and they were great, lots of... More

Located across the street from our hotel, Tequila was easy to get to and my husband and I always love Mexican food. Chips and Salsa did not come free like they do at home, so I ordered some along with an order of empanadas. And frozen margaritas of course. The salsa is very thick and tasty. We enjoyed the empanadas... More

What a great job the owners did renovating this spot. It's gorgeous, has an atmosphere that caters to relaxed table setting and even a romantic dinner on a funky Frida Kahlo bed!! The staff were amazing!! Ask Cathy to make you one of her delicious espresso martinis! And do NOT miss out on the amazing green salsa they serve with... More

We had a great night dancing under the stars. Slow service....takes a long time to pay, but good food and crowd.
