This was my mistake, I should have read the tripadvisor reviews first. I can deal with their crooked exchange rate from pesos to dollars as I chose to use dollars as opposed to the local currency. However the terrible service and food cannot be excused! We waited over an hour for our meals (only half my meal came out Fajitas... More

We had 9 tacos, and 3 drinks (which were made out of store bought mixing drink) for just under $100. 00 . The tacos could be better, the service was slow due to the fact that the waiters spend more time dancing and trying to entertain the diners than actually taking orders. I give them a 10 in effor for... More

Great atmosphere, fun staff, and you must try the awesome chimichangas! Little on the pricey side after drinks and all but always worth the visit. Will always return every trip.

Despite paying a fair sum for the crawl, which included free drinks, we were constantly hounded by various staff including photographers, shot girls and a clown making balloon hats. Everyone was just interested in receiving a tip. We had our photograph taken... More

Atmosphere is great here, had lots of fun, very loud and covered in balloons (not ideal when you're allergic to latex!). More of a club than a restaurant/bar. Went as a trip with hotel, ordered a huge sex on the beach, don't know what I got but it certainly wasn't that, was disgusting... asked to send it back, waitress tasted... More

Great place for adults to go have fun. They have good entertainment that includes the patrons with dancing and singing. I didn't care for the people trying to sell you from oxygen to shots and pictures. If I say no once...leave me be to have fun. Other than that, everything was great...had lots of fun!!!
