Average meal

The atmosphere at this restaurant was good and the wait staff was good however it was a little pricey. 4 "americano" tacos were $25 which I think for tacos was a little too expensive. It was a nice meal but a little too pricey for a family of four We have had better

We braved the steps and ordered the Magherita (by the pitcher!). No one in our group had ever drank a magherita before - so we felt very brave. Our bravery was rewarded the drink was wonderful. The food also was delicious

Wanted to take out guacamole to have with wine at our hotel room. This place was literally one block from our hotel so thought we'd try it. Bartender was to take our order - but he was so entrenched in a conversation with other customers that it took 5 minutes to get to us (with no other orders being filled... More

We are from Colorado and so, we are accustomed to good to outstanding Mexican-style food and drink. You are not likely to find such at this restaurant. This place was located on the next block next to our hotel. We were hot and in the mood for margaritas and a little Mexican. The drinks were unremarkable and the food was... More

We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the margarita's were tasty. We ordered the beef fajitas but unfortunately they lacked seasoning. We had to add hot sauce to spruce up the flavour. The portion size was fine. My husband and I shared one order and there was plenty. We thought it was a bit cheeky though that they charged us for... More

This was the worst "Mexican" food ever. The rice had a weird taste; like burnt peanut oil was dumped into it and they forgot the spices. Nasty! The beans in the refried bean weren't cooked through but crunchy. I had 2 cuca tacos that cost $14... So I basically had $7 tacos that weren't even good. When we asked what... More
