Not your run of the mill Mexican, or even Tex-Mex, Aqui borrows from other cuisines to roll out some interesting and tasty dishes. Cuban pork enchiladas and grilled pork adobo are examples of Cuban flavors rolled into Mex favorites. Good value, everything seemed to be good quality at our table. Will try an 'Industrial Strength Margarita' next time, with dinner!

Very good food and a good sized menu of choices. Bean dip, humus, and guacamole, with chips are good starters here. We have eaten here four times and the food is always very good. The wraps, the salads, and the light meals are all prepared well and the portions can be split especially if you start with appetizers. The drinks... More

This was a great little find. From the pictures online it looks like a dark, quiet "sit down" restaurant - which it is not. You order your food from the counter or from the bar. You are given a "buzzer" devise to let you know when your food is ready, which was promptly. The bar was well stocked, prices reasonable.... More

This is a very popular restaurant. The food is consistently fresh and delicious. The dishes are creative with ingredients and flavors that easily complement each other. We enjoy dining here. One word of caution,though. It is generally crowded and the noise level can be intrusive if you are wanting quiet conversation. This restaurant is great for food and fun, with... More

We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed - they are consistently very good. The dishes show a lot of originality, have great presentation, and use very good ingredients. The menu provides wider and better, healthier choices than in a standard Mexican restaurant - great Tex/Mex and southwest variants. A salsa bar offers a wide choice of... More

We enjoyed the food - my 90 year old aunt enjoyed the food - seemed to emphasize fresh, house-made items. Vegetarians should find lots of options! Nice atmosphere & friendly service. Will definitely go again when in the area.

Every time my husband I I visit our son and daughter-in-law, the first restaurant we want to visit is Aqui in Cupertino. Absolutely fabulous food! Healthy options, including salmon burritos and black bean and vegetable entrees. The most delicious salsas and dips. Best I have ever had! Down the street from APPLE.

Firstly, they are not kidding about the industrial strength margeritas, whoa..... you really can't drink more than 2 at most! We visited this place twice, because we loved the freshness of every dish in this Cal-Mex place... You order when you come in, then find a table, not my favorite thing to do, but, hey, it keeps the prices down,... More

Lots of reviews already point out that this is not your regular taco stand. Aqui is definitely upscale Mexican with lots of additional influences. You order and pick up your food at the counter, which is a little incongruous with the rest of the restaurant. It's nice and clean. There's a big patio which is great on a sunny day... More

This is a good place for lunch with a group -- there's something for almost everyone, and even vegetarians should have plenty to choose from. The food is fresh and very tasty -- the fact that it's organic is a plus -- and the prices are very reasonable. I would definitely recommend it.
