“Delicious Mexican with a little class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

A little twist to your traditional Mexican restaurant. The food is delicious, wonderfully prepared, and presentation delightful. The menu has a lot of seafood choices which make it tough to decide, don't worry you can't go wrong! Don't let the class of this restaurant turn you away because the price is affordable. A great dining experience at an affordable price.

“Awesome mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Our B&B innkeeper recommended and we are so glad she did. The best seafood and guacomole around. The draft beer on tap was a great selection.

“Nice Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Great atmosphere. Chips and salsa are delicious. The entrées were not as good as the atmosphere or cocktails and appetizers. Great place to meet up with friends for appetizers and drinks.
