Excellent food and a good value.

A little out of the way but well worth the walk. The food was excellent as was the service and atmosphere. Authentic Mexican for a decent price.

A little hard to find but well worth the effort. Delicious margaritas and specialty drinks. Mexican food the specialty. Fajitas,burritos, skirt aricharra, enchilada's and chille relano. Make sure you see the waiter that carries 4 drinks on his head to your table. They have a mariachi band that comes in and will play for you if you request and pay.... More

Very attentive service. This is a casual, traditional Mexican restaurant. The Mariachi showed up which was fun for all. The food is good, and priced right. Good place for families.

We really wanted some authentic mexican food. Asking the locals where they like to eat, they say things like "Outback Steakhouse" come on, I want some real mexican food! Finally, this place!! Eat here if you can! They have a couple of different locations, downtown and in La Isla Plaza

Located right downtown and close to the Ramada. Pleasant atmosphere with nice staff. I was really hungry and ate all of the 5 "el Pastor" tacos. My wife had some fish that was tasty. Meal, tip and dessert came to about $30. They had some Mariachi players come through...pleasant and not obnoxious.

We took the R1 bus into town from the hotel strip for a bit of a change. Cheap ride only 42 pesos for 4 people- got off near the city hall and walked three city blocks to this lovely gem. Staff were fun and engaging- mariachi band, pics with sombreros for purchase and our waiter delivered drinks on his head!... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. We were not disappointed. Fresh fish specialties. Good service. Fair prices. Mariachi group playing during dinner. We did take a taxi to this downtown restaurant, and one back to the hotel. But, we felt was worth the trip.

We visited last week and I can say their food, service, staff attitude, and live music were all amazing. They were a little slow in bringing your bill but not a huge deal.
