Huge portions

Excellent food and service but we found the portions were huge. We ordered a dinner for two but it could have easily served four adults. Could not finish it :-)

Nice service, good shrimp - a little pricey for the location, but it was nice to eat there, and to have a choice of menu, looking over at an empty shopping center atrium.

This restaurant is located in the upper level of the Paradise Village mall. Not great ambiance if you're looking for outside dining, but they do have a wonderful musician that plays familiar tunes. The food is excellent as well as the service! Just a reminder that it is Mexican culture to have to ask for the check--not bad service. They... More

It's a quick walk from our resort. I was hungry for a Mexican breakfast and didn't find it at the resort. A quick walk to the mall and there it was on the second floor of the mall. Our waiter sat us next to the railing and said pretend your on a cruise ship. If you are going for atmosphere... More

We heard about this place from others on Trip Advisor. We ate dinner here twice and loved every meal we had. The fish is fresh and locally caught. The drinks were buy one get one free. Overall, great experience!

Been there a few times. The seating a little awkward. The food is good, but service is pretty bad. I mean, sometimes it's ok, but a couple times it has been horrific. If your table orders a lot of drinks it seems to go better. We waited for nearly an hour for our appetizers last time (Yes, we reminded the... More

We have eaten here several times in the last 4 years. It is located in the mall next to Paradise Village. I have found the quality of the food to be excellent. The service is fast and friendly. I have never had a meal that has disappointed me. The prices are very resonable. We paid $24 for a meal that... More

We went here because it was within walking distance of the hotel and seemed to be the best of the limited options. I was tempted to give it 2 stars but it was so inexpensive I didn't think it fair to do so. Our bill for 2 people including wine was under $40. The quality of the food and drink... More

We ate here March 5 for dinner. Marlin chili rellenos and marlin tacos. Always fantastic. Be sure to get a two-for-one drink coupon at the kiosk downstairs!
