Have been many many times. Great service, great food! Drinks are really good also. Lots of birds outside... If you aren't a fan, sit inside.

This is by far the best Mexican food on the lsland. Also, you can sit outside and see the beach while you eat (and drink) your dinner. They had a live band the night we were there. Great place.

My family loves to come here to eat! The staff is friendly and efficient. The food is brought out fast too. Always have to hit this place up when we are in town.

Visited here with my wife and young daughter on the evening of 10th August 2014. We at first just wanted to have a few drinks whilst sitting at the outdoor terrace with the sea view. The staff were happy to let us do this. We stayed for a few hours and eventually worked up an appetite. The food was very... More

Went there for lunch while fishing at the pier across the street. We had some tacos and a margarita, they were all pretty good. No complaints here. Id go again.

Good food, a wide array of items to choose from. Big portions and great beverages to select from. Chips and a great salsa, aplenty. The staff and our server was very pleasant to be around. Friendly, courteous and striving to make our experience there very enjoyable. The only down side to it all, was, it seemed a little hot in... More

I had been here twice before and really enjoyed it. The location is great. But the last time I went, I ate chicken fajita nachos for lunch. They came out in about 5 minutes. I should have known that was a bad sign, but I ate them anyway. I was very hungry, and they tasted fine. But the nachos weren't... More

The Mexican food is beyond words. I got the grilled chicken with the Cancun topping and the chicken was perfect and the topping mouth watering. I'm not a fan of the heated salsa i prefer a cold salsa but it was still good. We went for happy hour and the 1.99 margaritas were actually very good. We had a blast... More
