Tasty

We had dinner here and the staff were friendly and attentive. The menu was more Tex-Mex than Mexican. We had the shrimp fajitas, marinated beef burrito, beef Baja tacos and the Jerk chicken. All were very tasty but the chicken was a little bland. Would go again to try other things on the menu.

Went here for dinner with my girlfriend and was impressed with the food, very fresh. Was quite busy so service was a little slow but overall a good meal.

It was our last night in Bali and we had a craving for nachos. We had been past this Mexican restaurant a few times and saw on their website that they serve nachos. Not many Mexican restaurants in Bali serve nachos. The decor was really cool and very colourful! We had nachos for entree. These were nice and had Mexican... More

Stopped into this little restaurant after seeing the lady standing on the corner spruiking for customers. Pleasantly surprised. Food was made on the premises, menu was small but great. Haven't quite got the nachos right in comparison to real mexican food but great attempt. Do try the poco loco prawns, coated in coconut crumbs, sensational. This little restaurant was close... More

Stopped in for an enjoyable and relaxing lunch. Food was more than adequate and the staff friendly. Could easily return to sit and enjoy a couple of hours chilling with good company and a bottle of wine.

We went for dinner here and wondered why no one else was in the restaurant. Don't get me wrong, the food was OK but nothing special, however the bill for 3 adults and 4 kids came to over 200 AUD and which I found really expensive considering us adults weren't drinking. Sorry CHARA, but I ate at a lot better... More
