I have been eyeing this place every time I go by, and I finally got the chance to try it last week. The food was really good! You can determine how spicy your choice will be which is great for those of us who are not the bravest when it come to hot food. The home made potato chips were... More

I love the food here. It's expensive, but maybe that's because I always have a few super-high-end alcoholic beverages when I eat there - their mojitos are to die for!

Humble in appearance but once your inside you will enjoy a Mexican cafe feel. The food if made fresh to order and it's obvious the chef takes pride in his food, service wasn't anything to brag about but ok but it's the food we will return for

Good Mexican food is difficult to come by on Vancouver Island, and this is one of the best places I've come across. The food is authentic, and the staff are great.

We have been here a few times now. Worth going back to. A varied interesting menu. And they make Chillies Relleno in a style that I like. This is most often a family celebration outing for us. A little pricey, but about at a par with Boston Pizza rates. We had cheese stuffed hot peppers for one person, I had... More

This small restaurant tucked away in the University Village Shopping Center amazed us with the quality of its Mexican food. The chiles rellenos surpassed those that we have eaten in Mexico and the nachos were perfectly served with refried beans, sour cream, salsa and avocado. The service was excellent and we would rate this as one of the best restaurants... More

Overall tasteless food for Mexican. No spice or anything. Super bland. Expensive for portion sizes and quality. Rice was old and stale.

Not authentic Mexican food, but not bad for Vancouver island! Service was uninterested, probably won't be back!

My husband and I have spent several winters in La Penita, Nayarit, Mexico and this is authentic Mexican food. The complimentary house-made tortilla chips and fresh salsa are to die for. Worth going for those alone. Today I ordered the Tortilla Soup, it was delicious, a flavourful tomatoey broth with lots of chicken, topped with crema and queso fresco and... More
