This restaurant is decorated beautifully. I really liked the food and drinks as well. I had tacos and they were yummy. The service is a little different but fine. Would go back.

The 4 different guacs were really the same guac with 4 different toppings, so that was a disappointment; but the rest of the meal was great. The corn on the cob with aioli, cotija cheese & spices was really tasty, chile relleno was great, and the tequila ole!
