“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We had very good service and the place was clean. Prices were a bit high compared to Mexican food on the main land, but it's in Hawaii, afterall, so few things are cheap. We thought the portions were just right. They do charge extra for soda and salsa refills (75 cents, if I can recall correctly). We had burritos and nachos. Everything was good. Especially enjoyed the fresh tasting guacamole.

“View of the road!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Food was not generous, good, but for the price I expected more on my plate. The road noise right below was a bit much.

“Drinkers hang out”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great location to Marriott Beach and Lagoons. Fun tourist bar. Food is very unauthentic and generic - Taco Bell level. Go for the beers, balcony and night time fun.

“Wonderful Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Found this restaurant while off a cruise ship here in Nawiliwili Bay. It has a wonderful location on the upper level overlooking the beach. Very accessable to guests of the nearby Marriot hotel complex.

We just had a couple of beers and nachos but the welcome was sincere and the beers served very cold and the natchos good. The platters we saw were very appealing. All this at very reasonable prices.

“Very average Mexican food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Maybe it is just Hawaii, but we foundf the service to be very slow almost everywhere. This place was slower than average - one servcer for the main dining area.. Food was not at all spicy. However, the fish tacos were tasty and the guacamole was above average.
