Best crab cake salad in Cupertino!

I always come here for their crab cake salad. The crab cake is thick and tasty, the mixed greens salad is super fresh, plus the all-you-can-drink ice tea - it's paradise in California!

I have been to many mexican restaurants and this one was by far the worst. The food was tasteless, the drinks (I had a Margarita) were pre-made and tasted awful. Needless to say we didn't finish our food or drink.

Aqui features traditional entrees with a great selection of special fresh and creative Mexican dishes at a reasonable price. A great place for lunch, happy hour or dinner. They charge for chips but the bowl with salsa bar is endless, so order only one chips for the table. Order at the counter and get your buzzer, get your drinks and... More

Aqui's is one of my favorite local restaurants. Their food in very interesting and always tasty. It makes me step outside the same old routine and try something new without spending the big bucks. The only negative is the loud, cold atmosphere. It not not necessarily comfortable to dine there.

My hiking and lunch groups eat lunch her every so often. It is not my favorite, but, to be fair, several of my group members like it quite well. I do like the mango/walnut salad. The service is fast and efficient. The fountain beverages are Pepsi products. The parking lot is small and shared with several businesses so it fills... More

The food at Aqui's is really great and unusual for a typical Mexican restaurant. I had the shrimp flautas which may not be so atypcial, but my friend had lamb. All the food was quite tasty and they have a salsa bar for the chips. The Industrial Strength margarita is wonderful.

This is a fast casual restaurant suitable for single diners, families and groups. You ordered up front, and get a pager to pick up your food later. The food is delicious. The price is reasonable. They serve California style food which is a little bit of everything, from salad to wraps to small plates. The wrap comes with either a... More

Went there on friend's recommendation, and were not disappointed. Casual atmosphere, fast service, and nice, health conscious menu. Like my friend, I chose salmon with lemon vinaigrette dressing - it came with brown rice, tofu, broccoli and papaya salsa. My partner had chicken breast wrap with clam soup, and today he was ready to return just for the soup. The... More
