I love this family-owned place! We stopped in one night because another local Mexican restaurant has a Mariachi Band, and that's not our thing (too loud - we want to eat and hear ourselves). What a pleasant surprise this place was! Quiet, excellent food, and the owner will get his guitar our for special ocassions and serenade you! We love... More

We got to our hotel and I checked tripadvisor for local restaurants. We could almost walk to this but drove because we had to go to the store after. There were only a couple other people when we got here but the place was getting more people as we ate. I had the fish tacos. I paid the extra dollar... More

Went here for the first time for lunch on our first day in town. As others have said it's an assuming place which looks like it is a converted house. Nevertheless we really enjoyed the atmosphere here because we felt right at home. But most important, the shrimp Choc-Mool is absolutely delicious. The shrimp is in a spicy chipotle cream... More

Stopped here for some Mexican food and liked the small, nicely decorated and friendly restaurant. My wife ordered the nachos and got a plate full with beef and cheese. I got a combination plate with a soft taco and a burrito with rice and beans. To be honest, I could not tell the taco from the burrito. Both were good... More

The food was great. Loved the fish tacos and the fresh made chips... still warm when they were served. Pretty sure the owners are also the operators, so you get that real pride with the service.

Javier and his family bring authentic flavors of the Yucatan to this modest looking restaurant on A1A Beach. My favorite is Shrimp Fra Diavilo (sp) and Shrimp Chac-Mool. My husband loves the tacos, and usually gets three different ones. If you're good, Javier will serenade you and your party with song and guitar. Super soothing and really makes you feel... More

On vacation in St. Augustine and saw this place on TripAdvisor. We have to agree with previous reviews in that this is an excellent restaurant. Lovely, fresh authentic food. Friendly service. Very reasonable prices. Recommended
