Eclectic Mexican Food

This is a pretty cool spot for Mexican food in Banff. The interior is super decorated and funky, with funny signs. The food was really delicious, it is a bit expensive however but probably on par with what can be expected in Banff. It's the only restaurant I ate at during my stay in the area... read more

The food was excellent and the service was really good. It's a very busy restaurant but we went on a Sunday night at dinner time and they got us in quite quickly with two high chairs for our toddlers. The food was a little on the slow side, but as I said it was really busy.

Excellent food and excellent service. Our meal was served in a timely manner and was hot!! It was really busy, but it was worth the 15 minute wait.

We came here after a long day of hiking. We weren't a fan of the salsa. My mom and I shared the nachos, but there weren't many toppings on them to cover half of the chips. My husband loved his entree - the 3 Pig Queso quesadilla. If I went there again I would order that. We were seated at... More

This place has dinner specials every day and I ended up eating here twice during my visit. The staff were very friendly and the prices were mostly reasonable. I had the $5 burritos on Tuesday (I had two, they're on the small side) and the burrito meal another day, which was very filling. They're only slightly off the main strip,... More

The building is very rustic looking with old wood everywhere and peanut shells on the floor kinda place. We had the nacho's and they were awesome. Great guacamole and homemade salsa. The drinks there were awesome too. The tequila flight is a nice touch allowing you to try 3 shots of tequila on one platter.

This place has such a great atmosphere. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic I had the chicken quesadilla, probably the best I have ever had. On Wednesday they so $5 litre of sangria and it's delightful! Definitely worth checking this place out.

This was far from the most authentic Mexican food we've had but it was good. They had quick availability and strong margaritas. $56 for 3 people and 2 drinks.
