Good Vibe

This restaurant was a little pricey, but food was pretty good and the vibe was great. If you're free one night for dinner and want Mexican food, check this restaurant out.

Everything - from the ambiance to the bar to the food - gets five stars in my book. They've got the best margaritas, home made chips, salsa and guacamole to start things right. Generous and tasty menu items but my favourite will always be their fall off the bone ribs. To be sure you could blindly select anything on the... More

1st impression of the place was good from the start......friendly and polite staff when greeted at the door. Once inside I continued to be impressed. I have been to hi-end Mexican restaurants all over the US......from San Francisco, Austin, TX, Miami, FL, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Pa and NYC....and this place is comparable to all of them. This place would fit... More

Probably the best Mexican restaurant in Cebu city. Problem is, it doesn't taste even "Mexican" at all. Being of Mexican descent and having been to Mexico a couple of times the food has left my chilango taste wanting for more. The tortilla used in Tacos were kinda stale and the salsa is not even salsa. It tastes more Filipino than... More

I have to say they have the best service. Their waitress/waiter were so proactive and attentive. As for the food, a must try for me would be their cheese fondue with nachos. Their enchiladas ( which was what I was craving for ) were not as good as I thought coz the tostilla was kind of hard. A must try... More

I read a lot of good things about this place and I was so looking forward to the food. I walked in to an empty restaurant and was asked if I had a reservation. There was a delay in seating me even though there was just ONE occupied table with a couple. So I ordered a margarita and asked if... More

It was a very nice place. Frindle staff. The food was okay. But it was little expensive. Cost 2500 pesos for two adults and 2 children.

Had a Burrito since the A Cafe across the establishment recently closed down. I do have high marks for the staff and the ambience. If for those 2 alone i will return. Maybe i should try other dishes but I can only take one dish at a time. Will review again when that happens.
