By far our favourite Mexican which we always visit on our annual trip to Puerto Del Carmen. We have visited twice this year and the good as always has been excellent. The staff are also really pleasant and friendly - well worth a visit if you like Mexican

This restaurant is located near the harbour in the old town. It is small which gives it a more intimate, friendly atmosphere. The food was superb, served by very friendly staff. We will definitely be visiting again when we return to Lanzarote next year.

Ate here a couple of times during our holiday, and can not wait to get back there. The food can be as spicy (or not) as you like. We had the fajitas which were amazing and the enchilladas, both of which I'd heartily recommend. Better than any we've had before! Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and as for the chocolate tequila!...

Danniella and Kirsty are welcoming and friendly, and if you haven't been to the restaurant before will patiently explain the menu. The food is so good, my mouth is watering just remembering it.Always start with a jug of frozen lemon margaritas, and... More

Went here last Sunday as it had been recommended by friends and we were very pleased with both service and food. We were greeted by smiling waitresses and shown to our table immediately. Menu's were handed out and explained so that we would not be suprised by the heat of any of the dishes. The food when it came was... More
