Being a business traveller, I am often dining on my own, and it's interesting how some restaurants deal with a solo diner. This place had excellent food, and that part was good. The server wasn't very welcoming, and she clearly didn't want to spend much time on me. There were other tables, and the couples and groups got better attention.... More

The atmosphere is very nice here. I usually order the enchiladas (salsa Verde) but they've really gone up in price over the last year or two and the portion seems a bit smaller. It is served with a little side of their homemade refried beans which are very good but again the portion was very very small. The food is... More

We came here for dinner on a recent trip to Peterborough. The restaurant has no parking. You either park on the street or there are a couple of municipal parking lots within walking distance. (Tip: one of those municipal lots gives you the first hour free, so by the time we got back to the xar after eating our parking... More

Had a very nice meal here. The food was good and quite authentic. I saw a few things on the menu that you don't usually see outside Mexico. The restaurant was short on wait staff the night we were there so service was very slow. Still glad we went.

Very nice selection of food. They didn't have any pinto Grigio, but the Azteca soup was very good. The fajitas were ok, but the tortillas lacked tasted, so they should have been served with cheese or some extra spice! The waitress wasn't too friendly, and seemed annoyed of us. We had great shots of tequila and a pretty good mojito.... More

We loved the authentic Mexican food. It tasted amazing. The waitress was very helpful as well since we needed a bit of guidance in what to order. We highly recommend this place!

If you are looking for authentic Mexican food then this is where you will want to go...the owner/chef is herself a Mexican and brings to us her native cuisine ! There is outdoor seating which you will want to enjoy in the warm summer months [no a/c inside].... A Mexican gastronomic delight ! Go and enjoy !

Ordered the Tacos Dorados yesterday for lunch. Never had them before.They looked like what I would call a "Taquito"...rolled up tortilla and deep fried. About the size of a really fat middle finger : ) 2 had a mashed potato filling and the other 2 had beans (refried, maybe). They were topped with crema or sour cream and a very... More

The restaurant was clean, food was good. The waitress was great to help us out in ordering as we weren't sure what to try. A piece of Mexico right in downtown Peterborough. Will be sure to go back!
