Very good food

We always enjoy the food and service at this pl;ace. The price is a bit high but the quality is worth the price. The margaritas are well made and great tasting.

I would definitely never eat there again worst Mexican food I've ever had. The food was nasty and very expensive. I do not recommend this place to anyone.

We were in Ft Lauderdale for a night and were taken here by friends who live in the area. It was early evening and we were seated promptly. It was typical Mexican food. Two of us ordered the 2-taco meal, and we both got 3 tacos. Otherwise it was nothing memorable. Service was good.

The Margarita was very good and overall the food was gpod, but the area I sat off the bar was "handled" by the bar tender and she was not what I would call iut-going. I don't think she smiled once and that would have pushed this visit to at least a 4 point above average score. I had the seafood... More

The food is adequate for the price. The service was pretty good. Margaritas were alright. No complaints really, just a bit pricey

Seriously you're better off going to Taco Bell. Everything is swimming in refried beans. Presentation is not appetizing at all. Then, worst of all it's really overpriced.

I generally avoid Mexican food in Florida. I spend a lot of time in San Diego and I find the Mexican food better out there. But, sometimes you have to go against the grain and do things you don't normally do. There was a bit of delay between seating and drink orders but we got there right when they opened... More

First we were seated and asked to move because the server for that section, 1 of 6 tables on the patio, was not there yet. Margaritas were good, though my wife said the Mango Bay was not worth $11.25. Salsa was pureed in a food processor and was bland. Ordered enchiladas and Pepe's Burro; virtually the same dish. Bland, Bland.... More

The wait staff was not very attentive took some time to get drinks and I ordered the Alaskan Crab enchiladas, not big on flavor, did not taste like crab especially for the price.

We have eaten there every time we are in Fort Lauderdale. Their Margaritas are good,the food is great.but the fresh salsa is the best we have ever had. I could make a meal out of that! The service and ambience are typical.
