We found this restaurant to be just average: Very average food with typical offerings at a higher price point than most Mexican restaurants; very average service since the waitstaff seemed quite rushed. We did enjoy our table on the veranda. The margaritas were ok. We think we can do better next time we're in town.

We had a group of 12, there was not quite enough room to have another group that size in the small restaurant. The food that we ate was quite good. My wife had the fish tacos which she loved and I had the ketose which were very good. There is no tableservice, you order at the calendar and then they... More

Steak Burrito Mojado, Crab Enchilada, Tacos del Mar were all excellent. Staff was very busy but still very friendly. My world-wide favourite.

We discovered this great little restaurant while strolling around Santa Barbara. Their food is soooo delicious! Their staff is very friendly and helpful. Servings are large. The first evening we each ordered an entree... but the second night we split an entree and it was more than enough! The staff treated us to freshly baked corn bread:) We highly recommend... More

Popular place! Excellent food! The filet protein burrito was exceptional. Also the guac is fantastic. Worth the 20 min wait. Great meal and will go back soon

This is the place to eat in Montecito if you want very good Mexican food in a very cheerful, casual environment.. you don't have to get dressed up.. you can just drop in! The food is always good, and doesn't leave you with that "overstuffed .. I should never have eaten that!" feeling you sometimes get from Mexican food...The service... More

We went here on taco Tuesday and really enjoyed their tacos. They were on sale for only$1.50 each, and we ate lots as they were so delicious! We had the carnitas and the chicken tacos. All very delicious, and they had a girl there making the tortilla shells by hand so the were hot and very fresh.

Good solid Mexican food. But, not any better (or different) from the good Mexican food I have had on the East Coast. I did enjoy the live music outside.
