“Easy place inside the Grande Luxxe.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed the poblano chili. It had shrimp and octopus inside. All the food at our table had wonderful presentation. It is a bit pricey, but it was quick and good. My kids were able to find fajitas and they enjoyed them.

“Lovely Christmas dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Eleven of us went to this restaurant for Christmas dinner. For some (not Mexican food lovers)' it wasn't their top pick, but was where we could all get in with a late reservation.

But, my husband and I loved it. It is an upscale place, just off the main foyer of the hotel. It appeared they had an outdoor seating area, although we didn't see it. I ordered the red snapper, and it was scrumptious, with a sauce I mopped up with the fresh tortillas they'd brought for trying the various sauces. My husband had a mole, which he thoroughly enjoyed. When they forgot the chicken in our duaghter's quesadilla, they brought her out to entire grilled chicken breasts!

Service was on pointe. Sauces and dishes were well explained, including the heat level of various items. We would have liked to go back as just our smaller immediate family, but ran out of time. We'll return for a special night out on our next trip.

“Fantastic Mexican Fine Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

The cochinita pibil was the best I've had. The service was out standing. In short it was the perfect romantic dining experience.
