The staff of the restaurant is very warm and welcoming. Love the food, clean atmosphere, great company. Had so much fun with Mr. Felipe, the owner of the restaurant. You ROCK!!!! It'll be the first restaurant to go on my next vacation to Cancun. Best regards, Pocahontas Ne zinhomes@gmail.com

He was friendly and made you feel at home is his place. Good food/drinks & free tequila shots! Had the tacos/fajitas/carne asada/ nachos & enchiladas! All great... More

We went here based on the reviews here, but were really disappointed. Soup and Mole Enchiladas we're among the worst I've ever had.

I wanted to eat a whole fish and I was able to get it there. It was not too busy but is hidden out of site in the downtown area of... More

Went here last week to get dinner and watch one of the world cup matches. This place is nicely tucked away from the busy road, which is good in terms of reducing road noise, but means it doesnt benefit from much of a breeze. We had a variety of cocktails, the strawberry daquiri being the nicest, and the drinks were... More
