We really enjoyed our dining experience eating here. The mexican food was really good and the service was top-notch. We enjoyed the atmosphere and live music. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone considering mexican food, drinks and entertainment.

“Probably best mex food on Big Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Great surprise to have great Mexican food; we've been greatly disappointed with Mexican food everywhere in Hawai'i, but we didn't much mind as there is so much great Asian and seafood here, even at roadside stands. This place is worth the trip!!! It is expensive, like everywhere else here, but the shrimp burritos were as good as the steak! Try eating in the bar area, great atmosphere!

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Ok the furnishings are not fancy but the food is tasty. The restaurant is for Mexican food ( you find too the hamburger) . The coktails are great, large. The staff is really friendly. And important fact it s open after 9 pm ( not really often in this place and really useful) . Moreover: cheap. Don t skip it

“Only spice they know is salt”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

This sprawling restaurant, with overly loud music, serves mediocre Mexican food. The price is fairly cheap but the main flavor that comes through is salt--no subtle chile or cumin or cilantro. I'd take a pass.

“not fancy, but great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We came here twice on our vacation because we really liked it. The furnishings are not fancy, but the staff is friendly and the food delicious. They make homemade desserts, which were wonderful. (especially the lilikoi pie) They serve large portions and the place and setting has character. We will definitely return on our next trip.
