..... But it was disappointing. Chips just meh, homemade salsas rather sweet, gorditas over-cooked and bland. Drinks, view, and service ok. I will probably give it another try & order something else, but it was not that great.

Went there last night and had a great first impression, what a view and location! But all aspects of my food were bland, the beans, rice and even my enchiladas. This was disappointing especially because I had heard such wonderful reviews.

Seattle is not very famous for Mexican food, is it? We have so many Mexican restaurants in New York compared with Seattle. This restaurant is at the beautiful place, casual, and the service was friendly. But the food was sadly mediocre. Great place to go to enjoy the scenery and meet up with friends for sure!

I go here a lot because it's right next to my work. But I never get tired of the fresh and modern Mex. It's delicious.

We (family of four ages 23 - 63) with varying diet preferences (one vegetarian, one ulta-spicy guy, etc) all left happy! Service was VERY good. Chips were delicious and still warm. They were so good, I ate every last crumb. All of our entrees were also consumed post-haste. We will return!

If you want funky with good Mexican food go to Agua Verde. There is usually a line at lunch, but they move through it quickly. Very good service for the volume and the food is unique and delicious. Good prices. Only thing bad is parking, so leave a little early because it may take a few extra minutes to find... More

Seemingly isolated location, although super convenient for those working around the medical center. I found the portions to be a bit small, but the food was delicious. The horchata was great!

I have been here twice and will not go again. The food is just bad; the great view doesn`t compensate for the bad food. This time, the taco de carnitas was drowned, drowned in a vinegary barbecue sauce that left vinegar burn on my tongue and made me sorry I had gone. It's overpriced, too. If you must go, go... More

This is a small cafe close to the UW hospital. The cafe came highly recommended and lived up to its reputation. The vegetable burrito was fantastic and left an oh so pleasant taste in my mouth afterwards. They also serve breakfast. Do have a mocha with Mexican chocolate!!!

Went for lunch--with probably too high of expectations after being here several times for dinner in the past. First of all, lunch prices are overpriced for what we ordered. Second, we got a great table overlooking the water--but it took asking several workers to get our table cleaned from the last people. And the worker that came to pick up... More
