This beautiful tablecloth and cloth napkin restaurant is one of a smallish chain of Mexican restaurants that offer typical Mexican tortilla dishes as well as fish and meat main courses. Their signature dish is guacamole made from scratch at table side in a lava mortar and pestle; it was wonderful either with chips or soft tortillas. Sangria was unremarkable but refreshing. Indifferent crab empanadas (3 per serving) were shared as appetizers as were a tasty collection of 3 different forms of seafood ceviche. The four of us enjoyed beef enchiladas with mole (chocolate) sauce, cheese enchiladas, but the most enjoyable (and most expensive) of the meals was the "Alambre a la Mexicana," tender, flavorful filet steak morsels interspersed with veggies, as if cooked on a skewer. Service was friendly and helpful, freely offering recommendations that were taken and enjoyed.
