Oh, an adequate Mexican outing

At the price, seems okay for a Tex-Mex outing. It is in a high-rent building, so the price was no surprise, and befitting expectations. The nachos were fresh, and grease was evident, but that was fine... the salsa was very good. When I asked for a bag to take the left over nachos home -- I hate... read more

My husband and I ate dinner here on July 24 in the lounge. There are several TV's on running sports with closed captioning. This is an open space into the restaurant and loud - not uncomfortably so, just not muted or dampened in any way. Low key theming, comfortable chairs at smaller tables. We had to ask for menus and...

Reasonable grub (mix of 3 from tacos/tamales/enchiladas/burritos), tasted decent and not overburdened with queso!! Portion size a it over generous especially as a big bowl of tortilla chips and salsa is given on arrival, could do with less rice and beans. Service efficient and polite. Ok if you are in the shopping centre as not much else in the area... More

I would not eat here again, the food was bland and not appetizing. I am sorry for going along with my husband who loves Mexican food. He said that was the worse Mexican food he has ever tasted, and I agree. We should have went Japanese instead.

I had dinner here last Thursday evening and thought it would be nice to sit outside on the terrace. While the service was friendly enough, the food was really terrible. I had fish tacos - two or three small pieces of fish on each of two tacos, with some onions, tomatoes and who knows what. This came with a small... More

Looking for a place to sit back for awhile with my two youngest children, I took them into Pacific Place, knowing there was a number of food choices upstairs. It was lunchtime, but they were backed up and one had to wait for a seat - because they were understaffed. We weren't in a rush, so waited around 10 minutes.... More

Everything about the place was average, from the food to the service. The service could be better, but the Margarita was good!

Great place to get some tasty Mexican food. We have been here several times and each time we have had excellent service and food. The crab and shrimp enchiladas were mouth watering and generous portions. The shredded chicken Chimichanga was nicely seasoned and also a generous portion. The waiter was excellent and very attentive to us.

Wasn't expecting much from a restaurant located in a mall, but it didn't disappoint. Our waiter was fantastic, a real hard worker. We both thought the food tasted great. The atmosphere is noisy, it's a large room and you just have the feeling you're in a mall, but if you're hungry and craving Mexican don't hesitate to go.
