This is always a must visit restaurant when we are in the Scottsdale / Fountain Hills area. One recent visit happened to be on Mother's Day. We made reservations and were promptly seated upon arrival. Family meal meant a variety of items were ordered - all delicious! The sangria is always loaded with fresh fruit - great touch! The patio... More

Stopped by this place as the smells were great. If this restaurant was located in a more happening area like Scottsdale, it would be a place where the wait lines would be long. Everything we tried on the menu was great. Portions were generous.

This was our first time here and it won't be our last. We sat in their front patio, which is on the street but under a cute palapa. I ordered the Hibiscus Tea vodka drink since another reviewer had liked it. Too sweet for me. The menu is tapa style, all small portions but enough to share a lot of... More

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.
