Located in a picturesque outdoor area called "The Lakes" & nestled amongst Unami Burger and P.F. Changs is a gem of a Mexican eatery. Decorated on heavy velvet red booths ,whimsical tiles and heart chandeliers the eye candy decor does not disappoint-nor does the cuisine. The menu is a lovely one of tradicional dishes with modern presentation and quality-(not insane... More

This restaurant has a lovely location, beautiful decor, friendly staff, enormous margaritas and surprisingly bland food. The homemade guacamole was fresh, but bland. The chili rellenos were hot (with heat) and bland. The chips crispy and the salsa - wait for it - bland. So, it's a toss-up. Kind of like a sopapilla - puffed up and full of air.

Not your typical Mexican dishes. Loved everything. Scallop tacos were like candy! Blue corn tacos were great. Awesome margaritas. Good atmosphere. Can't wait to go back.

Yes, another fabulous lunch at a wonderful restaurant in the heart of Thousand Oaks. When we want a quiet, romantic spot to share a great lunch we go to Sabor Cocina. The service is always first class and the food is prepared artistically and tasty. Try the Tacos Hongos while you sit at the outdoor patio.

Stopped by here the other night as I heard great things about this place. I ordered the chili relleno as a way to see how good this place is. The chips and salsa were a great appetizer while I waited. The chilli plate was blazing hot when it arrived but what a great way to present this dish... It was... More

My husband and I went with our two young sons. We had a very good dinner of authentic Mexican food. The restaurant has a look of Mexico City. But what's exceptional are their Margaritas. I had the Hibiscus with Strawberry and Silver Patron. It was $15 but the huge size made it worthwhile. My husband's Cochitita Pinal was great. This... More

This is Mexican food with a difference, forget what you know from Del Taco this is refined Mexican food at its best. Definitely one of the best places i ate during my stay in Thousand Oaks. The setting is very nice with lots of interesting objects. Highly recommended, especially considering the standard of the other restaurants nearby.
