This place isn't good at all. Service was horrible and the food was poor quality. Dirty bathrooms and a cruise ship trap. Stay clear and keep on walking

Had the soft tacos, and breaded shrimp, food was very good, tasty and reasonably priced. The free salsa and chips were very good too. It gets super busy some nights so you might have to wait for a table.

I went for a dinner with my girl friend. She had the chicken chimichanga, and I had the tortilla soup. They started us with taco chips and salsa. The salsa was more like they opened a can of chopped tomatoes and just dumped it. very watery with huge chunks of tomato, and no flavor. When our meal arrived, it was... More

My husband and I love Mexican food and Margaritas. We luckily happened to stumble upon this place the first night we were in Aruba for our honeymoon. The location is awesome, right in the middle of a beautiful courtyard, and the decor is bright and airy. On our first night we sat at the bar and met the best bartender... More

A colorful and busy family atmosphere offers a nice variety of Mexican fare. Excellent service makes dining here a pleasure. There were five of us ranging in age from 18 to 70 and we each found something to match our taste. Such fun.

Went for dinner. Had a burrito with seasoned ground beef. Wasn't the best ever but still pretty good. Chips and salsa were good. It is upstairs in an open air setting looking down at some activity below....performers sometimes. Worth going to if you are close by. Wouldn't drive 30 mins to get to it.

We wanted a safe choice for our first family dinner out in Aruba and our young teens love Mexican - unfortunately neither of them liked the food. The chips and margaritas were good but the food was below average. Nice atmosphere, great location near the shops and hotels but really disappointing taste.
