The food is very good and the fruit wine is tasty. The staff is friendly. They also have an English menu if you need it.

Very good service, good food, prepared very well. My husband and I enjoyed very much. We were looking for steaks prepared in a more "typical" Mexican style and felt like we found it here. Very, good.
