Disappointed...again!

the cost has really increased since the last time I've been and the portions decreased. I had the taco salad and asked for spicy beef. Not spicy and really not good. The edible bowl was slightly stale. Will not return.

We decided to take our family out to dinner for our daughters 19th birthday I called to make reservation and asked if they do anything to celebrate birthdays. They said yes they have sombraoes, dessert and they would embarrass my daughter which was what we wanted. We arrived decided to sit on patio, food arrived but we did not have... More

I ordered the Club Quesadilla , and it was down right terrible . There was water running out of the quesadilla when it was picked up and there was barely any cheese inside it. I will never go back to this place again .Service was average .

I was excited to find Mexicali Rosa's in Halifax. The food was excellent and plentiful. Had the Bruschetta as an appetizer, it was amazing. We were a party of five and all had different entrees, everyone enjoyed the food. Will definitely go again when visiting Halifax.

I recently went to Mexicali Rosa's on Spring Garden Road on a Thursday evening as they had their nacho special on. We ordered the Chipolte Chicken Nacho's, the nacho's were good but there was barely an order for an appetizer for 2 people - I would say that I would not pay the regular price for those nachos. Then next... More

Manager Sarah made personally sure that everything was too our liking. Server Rachel was full of humor and a huge genuine smile. Good selection of beers (Corona and Dos EquXX were the only Mexican beers- but served with proper slice of lime.) The food is flavored to the locals - but three hot sauces were available to spice your personal... More

We went there last night for margaritas and fajitas. It was the best service I have ever had. The food was plentiful and hot. The beer was cold. And the drinks were good.

A plate of rice and 3 enchiladas the size of a hot dog, $14.99 It used to be MUCH more food for the price. Left still hungry And we went for Margarita Monday and was charged $10 for the drink. Never again... (heck, we can go to Taco Bell and get 7 tacos for that price).

The Grilled Honey Avocado Shrimp Quesadillas. I found these babies on my last visit and they are just too good. Just the right amount of food for a light supper or a heavy-ish lunch, and they are so succulent and juicy. It is one of my favourite dishes in town, and I'll definitely get it every time I go in...
