The food is good and the waitstaff is attentive and fast. Really great spot for friends or family, large or small gatherings. The only issue is the mariachi band on the weekends. They play SO LOUDLY that you have to stop any conversations until they leave the section. Really annoying. Otherwise a great spot! Fajitas for 2 are the best!

We went here on a Saturday night and it was pretty busy. The service is always quick and friendly and good regardless. The mole poblano here is definitely worth it. It is the best I've had outside of Puerto Penasco Mexico, and San Angel inn at Epcot. Absolutely delicious. The refried beans are also exceptional. Other people in our party... More

The food is superb, the best Mexican restaurant that I have eaten in to date, the whole place is just buzzing with atmosphere and there is a good variety of tequilas and margaritas. Highly recommended.

I believe there are 4 Puerto Vallarta restaruants in CT. My husband and I have been to them all. We have found the one one in Newington to be consistently hands above the rest!

My husband and I go here at least once a month. The food is amazing and I love the portions they give you. My favorite thing to order is the Carne asada and con queso. The staff is friendly, and we always have excellent service whenever we go. Plus awesome Margarita's.

This is one of the most amazing Mexican Restaurants I have had the pleasure to eat at. Their seafood dishes are second to none, shrimp cooked perfectly, so full of flavor, zest and spiciness to match any palette's preference. The table side guacamole is wonderful and a lot of fun for the kids. You can pick what you want in... More

Not good for conversation, could hardly talk - high energy place, had appetizers - loaded nachos and loaded potatoes - shared by three which filled us all. Generous free chips and salsa and queso cheese dips.
