Hawaiian infused Mexican food. We craved this place and ate there 3 times over 10 days. Including the hurricane party they threw the night of the big storm. The food is amazing, prime Kaua'i beef... The pork stacked enchiladas were unreal and churro fries are a must!

we just went there for supper and both had burritos. Absolutely no complaints about the service. The food was priced well and there was plenty of it. Maybe it was just what we ordered or because we have awesome mexican food at home that we were disappointed.

This is a popular restaurant and its usually pretty crowded but worth the wait. The fish tacos are good as are the shrimp quesadillas. Good service.

Delicious. The guacamole is different from other Mexican restaurants- it's yellow and it is yummy! The restaurant staff were helpful and prompt. Our glasses were always filled and the salsa was delicious. It had locals in there too so you know it's good if Hawaiians are there eating too.

So good we came back the next day just to be sure. Likely to go back a third time just because we loved it! We shared the fresh catch fish tacos first time. Second time we had just finished a long hike so not hungry quite yet. So we cooled down with some fresh guacamole and delicious fresh green tea.... More

Oh my! We were so happy to find this place; a must while on Kauai. Locals and visitors alike enjoy the relaxed vibe in a humble strip mall setting which lends to the overall experience of honest flavors and recipes that serve up such great tastes! The staff was personable and responsive making our time there memorable.

This was one of our best meals during our trip!! It's a tiny place in a strip mall, but serves up the best food. We had the stacked enchiladas and quesadillas, as well as a beer and a margarita. Your meal comes with free chips and salsa (one bowl). Our meal was a great deal, around $40. Service a tad... More
