Loved the food here! I had the Pastor burrito that had tomatillo salsa on half & red sauce on half. It was very good. My fiance had the salmon, she said it was fantastic! Two other couples in our groups ordered the molcajete. It looked amazing!

We stopped here while wandering down the beach after doing some shopping in downtown PM. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The margaritas were great and well priced. We will be back here! :)

We have been referred to the restaurant by the concierge in the hotel. He mentioned that it is an authentic Mexican restaurant. We went, service is good, food was just ok. The place was empty which is an indication on how the place is. The main issue was lots of Mosquitos attacked the place after sunset. Too many of them.... More

1st, BEST location to enjoy an authentic, wonderful meal I have EVER been to! 25 feet from the water, you step out the back ONTO the sand! It's a quirky theme, "Nacho Libre" wrestlers vibe, but make NO mistake, the BEST fish tacos I may have EVER had, KILLER guac, the frijoles were the BOMB, and the chile-salt rimmed margies... More

If I could give a 3.5 review I would. The restaurant has a very unusual, but interesting decor that makes for some nice pictures. The views of the beach are amazing too. Regards the food, it's more difficult to judge as I made a bad choice by going for something I had no idea what it was (it was some... More

When staying at the Now Jade we went into town and ate here. This was the best mexican food and mojito Ive ever had. We sat overlooking the beach and the shrimp taco was delicious. This restaurant is know for their mexican wrestling masks.

It was our last night in Mexico and we couldn't have picked a better end to the trip. The staff was friendly and spoke great English. The fish of the day (red snapper) was delicious! The daiquiris were also delicious. We loved the luchador themed decor, they even have a background and mask to take pictures with. The food was... More
