I had wanted toeat at tis restaurant for a long time. Butevery time I tired it was either close or full (most of the times). I enjoyed the food and the portions are decent. What I don't like is the fact that the place is too noisy. I also would like to have a more Mexican decoration. But the... read more

So I had seen on the internet that this place didn't get the best reviews, but many of the reviewers complained mainly about the fact that this was just some kind of texmex, not real Mexican food.

Tiny place, gets hot and is packed on any night. Food was ok. It's not like Tex Mex places in US....in a good way. Big portions. However the atmosphere is more like a loud nightclub. Everyone shouting, loud music, etc... Ok if that's what you're expecting. Not an intimate setting. But overall good experience

The food is really nice, and the size of the dishes are huge. Ask the waiter for the size of your dish, if you are not very... More
