hand made, home made fresh corn totillas. Tacos to die for... hard to find but once you do it's worth it.

The goat-cheese and beet empanada was superb, and the house-made jamaica drink is not to be missed. No one serves; go back downstairs and get your plate when called.

Omg! I have to admit, the margarita was quite good (strong, like I like it) but I have to say that the food was NOT Mexican food. My husband does not complain about anything, but when he said the food tasted like cardboard I knew this place was not the place to be. We ordered 4 tacos, one margarita with... More

This place was great. Kind of quirky in an interesting way. Can't remember what we ate. But I know we both enjoyed what we had. The service was very good. Be sure to get the hot salsa. You can also by it at the local market, which we did. The restaurant is a little hard to find because there isn't... More

Went here on a recommendation. We won't ever go back. Good: the salsa while you are waiting for your food, good stuff! Bad: the waiter scooped the chips out of a Juanita's tortilla chip bag (yes the kind you buy at the grocery store) with his bare hands and put them in the bowl to serve. Good: bottled beer was...

We stopped in just to get some margaritas and an empanada. The chorizo empanada was pretty good, crisp, but not very flavorful. The excellent rating is for the small-but-potent margaritas. Served in glasses to look like they are sawed-off beer bottles, they were tasty and make us woozy quickly. Would go back again if I ever find myself in Friday... More

We love this place, just wish it was open for lunch! The food was great and very authentic. I had the special for that day, pork belly's and loved every bite. A lovely couple operates it and they offer a great selection of plates. If you love unique Mexican food be sure to eat here!

Food was ok. I tried to like the fish tacos, but didn't find it anything special. Move on to the next place. Nothing impressive here.

There was nothing original, delightful or green. 2 daily "specials" an two cerveza's $45!! Serve your self and salsa bar with kids playing in the open containers. Sad that this meal was offered in Friday Harbor.
