Beautiful patio

The restaurant has a great atmosphere but the food was disappointing. It wasn't bad Mexican but I did expect better just because of location and atmosphere upon entering. Margaritas were great and made up for the lacking in the authenticity of the food. I think my expectations may have been a bit to high but Chipotle honestly offers up better... More

This is a little gem of a restaurant. I have been here at least 10 times and the quality of food is amazing and consistent. Service has never been an issue here either. Restaurant is clean, organized, and decorated in a warm Mexican style. My favorite dishes are the tamales, the freshly made guacamole and chips, tacos el pastor, and... More

The people who run this restaurant are clearly knowledgeable of what Mexican cuisine is actually like. They make an excellent margarita, for starters. We went to this restaurant about a month ago, so I don't remember what my fellow guests ordered, but I got the Fiesta de Mariscos and loved it. My partner is vegetarian and he was able to... More

This was my first time trying this place after reading a review in the on flight Westjet magazine and I'm so glad I did! Everything was so fresh and tasty. I had a burrito/ soup which was a lunch special, and my mom had the 3 small taco's. We split it all up which I am glad we did or... More

Honestly, the best salsa verde you will ever have. We can't stop going there. Please for your own sake... GET A SIGN OUT FRONT! More people need to know about this place.

It was a really hot day and the place is not air conditioned, so keep that in mind if you want someplace cool. I had a Mojito made with Tequila and it was great, a pickled cactus appetizer that was superb. Food was good! Presentation was nice. Dessert was excellent too. Authentic food if that's what you're after, like I... More

About a month ago, my boss brought La Hacienda's guac, salsa and chips to our staff meeting. It was all devoured in a matter of minutes and I have been thinking about it since. So today I decided to get the same for my lunch. I know, not a healthy lunch, but a treat just because I deserve it and... More

Visited Peterborough from Tampa and found this hidden gem of a restaurant on, trip advisor. If you are looking for a place to enjoy a quick bite, you may want to look elsewhere. This is a place for a relaxing casual lunch or dinner. Your patience will be rewarded with delicious food and good presentation. Server was pleasant and we... More
