We just came here to have a drink on a Friday night - went straight to the rooftop bar - very nice! The atmosphere i just really wonderful and relaxed. There were quite a few people there eating dinner and they all seemed to like their food. The wait staff was very friendly and very attentive. We... read more

We came for lunch. Not impressed. Mole enchiladas were greasy and mole sauce had no flavor. Tortilla was mushy. Chicken in the enchiladas was orange, and did not taste good. Tacos al pastor OK but not great. Burrito not great either. Chips and salsa- the salsa was like out of a can. Nothing fresh and no cilantro. Queso had zero... More

We hadn't been here for awhile, but will return. The chips and salsa were not typical and very tasty. The spicy pork was delicious. We enjoyed the margaritas.

My husband and I found this lovely restaurant by chance, on our way back to our hotel after a late concert in Bethesda. We were looking for vegetarian fare at 10:00 on a Friday night and had already encountered many restaurants that were either closed or did not serve vegetarian food. The Ramen place around the corner, for instance, was... More

Second time here for dinner, and again everything was delicious. We went with 2 of the 3 specials: pork tacos and red snapper with shrimp. Both were excellent. They have a big menu with lots of choices, and while the upstairs/outdoor terrace dining area may not be for everyone - if you were led there blindfolded and tasted the food... More

Go to Gringo & Mariachis for authentic mexican food. This place has been in Bethesda a long time and its food is really more Tex/Mex. If you want chips and salsa this is fine.

I have been going to this restaurant for more than 25 years, ever since it opened just around the corner, but I have not been back for about five years. Rockville where I live has come forth with many restaurants of high quality, so I have not been taking the trouble to go all the way to Bethesda. I was... More

It's like dining in Mexico during the summer without having to travel. The terrace is amazing, casual atmosphere, eclectic clientele, great service supervised by the owner and his family. The margarita is amazing and ask for the daily specials. Fish dishes are succulent. I insist it is very casual don't go dressed up, it's a place to relax and have... More

Nice ambiance with helpful service. Our food was a disappointment though. My wife's Chile Relleno appeared to have been frozen and microwaved. Lukewarm, sitting in water on the plate. I ordered a dish of marinated sliced pork which had the consistency of burned bacon. We have eaten there before and were very surprised by the quality of the meal. Pushed... More

We accidentally stumbled on this restaurant while walking in Bethesda looking for another place. It looked really authentic so we went in. Warmly welcomed and promptly seated. Place was fairly empty and that worried us but it soon filled up with what looked like regulars. Food was excellent and truly authentic. Also the margaritas were very good. Great atmosphere too...
