Best part is the outside patio dining. I liked the fish tacos the best and that seems to be the house specialty as almost everyone dining there were having either the chicken or fish tacos. This is a very popular place and good value as well.

As a person in search of gluten free food it was nice to find this restaurant. We went there three times during our 9 day holiday. The first time I had the sampler taco dish - 5 tacos! I loved the food, the location on the patio in the nice sun and the peace and quiet of the area.

That changes quickly as at noon it is "SRO". Menu is unique, nothing out of a can here, true Mexican fare. Noticed a couple of reviews... More

We had dinner there last night and the service was very slow. We had to wait 30 mins after we were seated to order a drink. The drinks were not worth the money. The food was ok, will not go back again!

Really nice location and atmosphere.. the owners are experienced restauranteurs and it shows... all the little details. Come for Flamenco Night if you can.. amazing show on the front patio.. Great location.. Great food.. not your normal mexican fare.. a little more exotic..
