I purchased a promotional voucher for this restaurant after seeing the positive reviews, but given the deal, was not expecting too much. How surprised I was after our meal was over that this place had to do any promotion at all. The food here was not only very tasty, but as you can see from below, the chef takes pride... More

We stopped in here a couple of times when they were new in town. We'd overlooked it for a long time, but we'd stopped in again a few weeks ago when we noticed their new happy hour menu. We made our third trip back to enjoy lunch recently and they have not disappointed us in anyway. The food is always... More

Like other reviews have said this is not your typical Mexican food restaurant... It's an authentic Mexican food restaurant! The food here has a Spanish influence mixing different spices and flavors together causing a unique flavor that will make your experience here unforgettable and carving for more! I have ordered the ceviche here many times and every time it has... More

Livermore is developing a nice cluster of good restaurants, and this is a fairly recent entry--a little more than a year old. It is Mexican food, but it is not the usual array of tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. The menu encompasses a nice variety of beef, pork, poultry, and seafood main dishes, and the sides and appetizers are seasonal and... More

My husband and I went on a Saturday night with his parents. Not very crowded, service was very good. The food is not your typical Mexican. As other reviewers mentioned, more gourmet and quite different. My in laws both had a different chicken dish. My husband and I both had a different shrimp dish. All were excellent. We shared a...

I visited the Sacromonte for dinner. The atmosphere is relaxed and very comfortable. Lights and decoration with a touch of mexican style but in the appropriate level. It makes you feel at one of the nice Haciendas in Mexico. As an entree we tasted the fresh cheese (delicious!). Then my husband and I had fish and salmon. The chef considered... More

Definitely not your average Mexican dinner. Would probably categorized their meals as gourmet Mexican. Food was amazingly good! Waiter's service was great with added knowledge of wine pairing for the meals my wife and I had chosen. Several days later, wife and I are still saying WOW. Yes, prices are higher than your average Mexican meal, but this is very... More

This place is a hidden gem - although the service was a tad bit slow it was so worth the wait! The food was divine!
