Good Food...

We were seated quickly and the wait staff was attentive. The food was simple, flavorful and good quantity. They have several vegetarian options so it was huge plus for us. Overall it was pleasant experience.

We stopped for dinner at Old Town Mexican Cafe without a reservation. They told us immediately that they would not be able to split a check for parties greater than 6 people (we had 8), which helped us avoid problems at the end. Our server was George, and he was fantastic. My husband ordered several substitutions on his meal, and... More

My wife and I could not decide on a restaurant,but her fallback is Mexican always. Somehow, Duval St., Key West, and Mexican did nothing for me. A nice cold beer at a table by the street made things go better. My wife is a fajitas specialist and she said that they were the best fajitas best she has ever had.... More

Close but not in the party zone is this Mexican cafe. Quiet dinner not far from action. Had sangria to drink that was simple but yet fresh. Salsa was excellent and fresh tasting. Fajitas tasted good, vegetables very fresh. Almost a 5 but not quite.

I was there with my family and we stopped by here for a quick dinner. I had the Baja fish tacos and those were really good but the best part of the meal were the black beans! I could have eaten those by themselves! It was a good meal but surprisingly don't don't serve warm queso.

We were trying to find a place to eat near Duvall street with trip advisor and not having any luck. We asked someone working at a booth where good places to eat were and he directed is here. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. For it being on Duvall street the prices were very reasonable and the... More

We dropped in for appetizers and drinks today. We were seated quickly and the wait staff was attentive. The food (chicken quesadilla & calamari) was adequate but nothing more but unfortunately we had higher expectations. I would not be opposed to giving them another shot but there are so many other places to try in Key West.
