The watermelon margaritas were fantastic and the food was awesome. The wait staff was very helpful in deciding what to eat.

We have eaten here every trip in the past and looked forward to eating there this trip. Unfortunately, this time it left a lot to be desired. I ordered a bottled beer (it was happy hour) only to be told when I got the ticket that happy hour only applied to drafts. It would have been helpful to know that... More

At least hire some English speaking servers. Got tired of trying to explain myself, kids had to point to menu. Margaritas were just ok and more sour mix than anything. Food was ok but may have been better if the leftover refried beans were off the table from the previous customers.

Beach views are not 'great' but nice to have a place you can get great Mexican food and sit outside and see the beach. Favorite Mexican place on the Island. Drinks are good. Kids love virgin daquiris and pina coladas after a day at the beach. Good chips and salsa, and big portions on the meals. Hard to go wrong.... More
