Awesome authentic Mexican food at very reasonable prices. Music and dancing on Thursday nights. Best place for Pozoli in Acapulco! Staff is friendly and helpful.

We came for dinner on Monday night the resturant has great ambiance. Parking in front is always a plus. Greeted by a friendly waiter. We were served complimentary appetizers of home made chips, black beans and salsa. We ordered the guacamole served with homemade chips probably the best guacamole (chunky) we have ever had.....and a must order. We settled in... More

I could not believe how well this restaurant coped with a large last minute booking. I turned up here with a group of 17 with no booking on a Tuesday night. There were only a couple of waiters on and a person behind the bar and I feared the service would be slow. I was so wrong. The service was... More

I came early for a group dinner and told the staff I will have tea while waiting for the rest of my party. The place itself is enchanting with the paintings on the walls and the bar and the tables had a colorful setting.. I was very impressed with the friendly staff who knew how to please the customers with... More

The food was good, felt little over priced. You can get the taste of Mexican food not just beans and Tortillas. Worth a visit,

We had a romantic dinner in the open air. Guacamole with homemade chips is a must have. The shrimp brochette was delicious, the chicken chalupa dipping sauce was awesome, a spicy jalapeño with guacamole. Live music to add to the atmosphere. We only have a week, but this one is worth eating twice.

Good location. It's right on the main Avenue so you can see the traffic go by, but it's like being in an Oasis - shady, cool and breezy. They have live music (a singer, who's very talented), but it's not loud enough to be disruptive. Great ambiance, food and drinks, interesting décor (colorful murals on the walls and chairs), and...
