The setting is nice, very open and airy. Food was just ok, nothing special there. Took too long to get our food. We ordered an appetizer that never came and I ordered an beer during dinner that never arrived either. There was a sewer smell at and around our table which was unappetizing.

Overall: Had a mediocre meal with poor service. Pork shank was dry and Mexican platter was bland.... Atmosphere: Fun for the kids to check it the lagoona. The bathrooms are also good for a laugh! Location: Handy location but on a busy road. However, the noise seems to disappear when inside.

Located in a very busy area but once in, you are in a whole new setting. Neat little pond to sit by and great people work there. and to top it off, the food was as good as it gets.

Large bowls made of lava stone arrive sizzling at your table filled with amazing assortments of seafood, beef, etc. These keep your food warm throughout the meal. Upon being seated, waiters bring you a big assortment of salsas with chips. The ambience is great...there's a little "river" running through it. The bathroom decorations are funny!

My husband and I visited this restaurant for supper! So delicious. I had pork shoulder (forgive me on what it was called on the menu) on the recommendation of a local. It was bone in, and melted in your mouth. My husband had a Mexican plate, and loved every bit of it. Huge portions!

Had a concoction of shrimp and sliced steak served in a sizzling pot with what seemed to be like sweet n sour sauce. It was so delicious and steaming hot until the last bite. My wife had chicken fajitas, they were also mouth watering delicious, Very good service, excellent atmosphere and superb food. Loved it

We stopped in here while wandering and I am so glad we did. The food was awesome and the scenery was very peaceful. The waiter was very helpful with his suggestions. We were so impressed we recommended it to many people at our hotel.

The fajitas were not very good. Seemed watery . It was a mediocre restaurant . The service was good . We didn't know of any other restaurants near our hotel so we figured it couldn't be that bad.

Thank shelley s
