“who knew i'd travel all the way to the other side of the world to find some of the best mexican food i've ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

coming from a southern californian: imagine my surprise at being totally impressed by the authenticity of this place. the carne quesadilla was one of the best i've ever had and the pina asada (grilled, pineapple, rum and vanilla ice cream) was a great mix of local and mexican flavors. would definitely come back and highly recommend.

in addition to the great food, the laid back atmosphere and great little retro design details make this place a great spot to hang out with friends. well-priced and unpretentious, a truly great find and really hit the spot.

“Cheap and Cheery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is such a gem. We've been back twice for dinner now, and the guys we're travelling with have gone back for lunch. It is refreshing to go somewhere in that particular part of Bali that doesn't take itself too seriously. They have a simple menu that allows them to deliver good food very cheaply. We loved the set up, it's been put together on a shoestring budget but it's been done with style. The staff were fab, very relaxed, very funky and very friendly. Great place to meet friends for an easy meal. Favourites - fish taco, burritos with roast pork and dirty rice, the salsa verde that came with everything.

“Potentially the best Mexican we've ever eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

After being introduced to this little gem through a couple of friends who are locals, we couldn't stop coming back. Simple yet awesome set out, upbeat and happy staff and some of the best mexican food we've had to date. Pork tacos are a must. O and the grilled fish. Very happy customers!

“Amazing Mexican in Bali!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

My partner and I stopped in here to grab a bite to eat one day while walking past. It was AMAZING. Such delicious mexican food. We went to other mexican restaurants while in Bali but this was by far the best one. The meals were very filling and very well priced. I would definitely recommend this restaurant over all the other ones that we went to during our Bali stay.
