Let's see... - We had a couple of Margaritas, and in the land of fresh limes, they used bottled juice - The table side Guacamole service was typical for table side Guacamole service - The Limone Pollo was decent, but not that special for being cooked umpteen hours, and plated to the standards of an 8 year old making that...

The menu looked good and it was in our recommended restaurant guide from our hotel so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant is on the second floor and our table was next to the railing so we had a... More

We came here as our last meal before leaving Mexico. The seafood was spectacular. They do a table-side caesar salad. The servers prepare the dressing from scratch; be sure to watch them do this as the skill level required is quite high. The ambiance is excellent and it feels like you are in your own world sitting above the strip.
