Delicious food, wonderful service, reasonable prices. The outdoor seating on a fair weather day is a bonus.

Ate dinner here. Given that my standards are high (I live in Tex Mex country) I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. Of the three salsas that came with the chips two were very flavorful, the guacamole was excellent and the Dona Paula enchiladas were outstanding. The Mojito was done right as well.

By far the best Mexican in the area of Long Island City, their mole is amazing but the flank stank is the best thing on the menu and recommend you order it every time!

But very small portions. Still, it's worth it. Even though I don't like the ambiance with very low ceiling and bad acoustics, I would still recommend the place.

We've been meaning to try this restaurant ever since reading the NY Times review a few months back. We came on a Sunday afternoon, and they were serving their brunch menu. This was not the standard eggs benedict - pancakes - omelets menu; rather, full of interesting Mexican dishes. I had the pozole, a dish not often found in NY... More

The overall white of the decor is blinding at first but makes up for the dim candle light later. The bar is very well stocked with many tequila brands. The mojito is fresh, not too sweet and rich in mint. So is the Patron margarita. Very nice and personable bar tender. Now, over to the meal: excellent. Someone in the... More

This place is small and quaint. The service is excellent and the food matches. The chef is very creative and neat. I have eaten here several times and they don't disappoint. Great drinks too.

We were a party of four during a Saturday dinner service. I would say that the atmosphere was casual, but it was more kind of like nobody working there cared. The interior was all white, but it looked dirty because there were no lights on. Sad looking string of stenciled paper tacked onto the wall was the only remotely Mexican... More

Eaten here several times, with both large groups and with only another person. Service always excellent, never rushed unless you specify you're in a hurry. Food is excellent, tried several things on the menu including the best lamb shank ever, delicious enchiladas, chorizo tacos, and fantastic desserts. Fennel ice cream is great, and I adored the goats milk caramel ice... More
