I've eaten food all over Mexico, and I have to say this was one of the blandest "Mexican" meals I've had. The mole was two dimensional, probably the worst I've had, but what really got me was the super small portions and $14 guacamole. Really?? And when we asked for sour cream on the side, they gave us about a... More

We ate at Xicohtencatl on fourth of July weekend. So you know it was busy, but we had no trouble getting a reservation (for six) at a reasonable time and we were seated promptly and didn't have to wait terribly long for our food. Everyone at the table enjoyed the dishes they ordered. Lots of beer choices and the mixed... More

We've eaten here twice. Good strong drinks. Their black bean soup is amazing and has inspired me to make my own (not nearly as good as theirs). The portions and prices were good. Next time in the area, we'll go back!

We had an excellent dinner here! The service was fabulous as our water glasses were never empty! We all started with margaritas and enjoyed the chips with the fresh salsa. Our dinners came out in an appropriate amount of time as we had just finished with the chips and salsa. We all enjoyed our entrees and felt that the servings... More

My husband and I went here for dinner one night a few weeks ago. The weather was great, so we sat on the porch. We found the service that evening to be spotty and slow, and the descriptions on the menu were not quite accurate. My husband's burrito "with avocado" came with a slice or two of it on top.... More

My friend and I both ordered embuletos and we were both very happy! Three tortillas stuffed with shredded chicken and onions, topped with mole poblano and goat cheese. The mole poblano was a sauce made from chocolate, chiles and almonds. Just an amazing taste. Deserts were fried ice cream and Pastel Tres Lechos, which is a delicious cake made with... More

Dinner started with Margarita's. We had the house one and they seemed to have very little alcohol or taste. The guacamole was tasty but the meat fajitas had very little meat and only came with two wraps anyway. I guess two wraps were adequate to cover the small portion so I should n't complain. The price of $20 at a... More

This was our 4th visit to this Great Barrington restaurant. The last time we were there before this visit was the summer of 2013. Each time the food and service were very good. We were looking forward to a meal there when we were in GB again. Well, we were there last week and really wish we had gone somewhere... More
