Wonderful food, margaritas and service!! We had the coconut shrimp, tuna tostados, chicken parmesan, and meat loaf. Such a wide variety and everything is delicious. The service is exceptional, staff very accomodating and friendly. Have seen people comment how the location is not ideal..but we find it adds to the charm😄 A go to every time we are in town!

Have gotten much better fish tacos at other eatery's in San Jose, very bland. My husband enjoyed the chicken enchiladas. Most restaurants that I have been to in San Jose incorporate the sales tax into the price of menu item. Not sure if they state sales tax on menu but they should. Disappointed.

Perfect for a wanted Mexican breakfast fast. A regular place with good food. Not fancy, just fine. No need to dress up.

The food is excellent (we recommend any seafood dish and breakfasts) and the service was outstanding. The staff is helpful, knowledgeable, and happy to recommend anything from food to wine. We also found that when we had... More
