Great atmosphere in the style of an old tequila distillery. Good selection of tequila & excellent food. Dine inside or out on the deck next to the lagoon. Awesome sunset dinner.

Popped in here for a late lunch around 3 PM. There were quite a few tables being served when we arrived. It was interesting that at least half of the patrons were locals. My wife had the Chile Rellenos, and I had the "Devil" shrimp. Both were excellent, and portions were quite large. We started with a "Golden Margarita" vacation... More

We heard about this reasonably-priced restaurant from someone who had visited a few years ago: "My favorite place" was the personal review. We found that it exceeded even the word "favorite." Our waiter helped me decide between two of the house specialties, and the arrachera (flank steak) that he suggested was among the best I've eaten. We arrived earlier than... More

Our family had been here before and had great food. We had mutiple different types of fajitas and all were good. Guacamole was very fresh and the salsas varied from mild pico to a slightly spicy Verde. Sitting outside was lovely and provided the perfect setting for a proposal from my nephew to his lovely girlfriend in the presence of... More

Seriously one of 3 places we go every time. And the one we would not miss if we had to choose. Highly recommend the table side guacamole, mojcahete, and a tequila tasting. Don't forget to tip the mariachi! Go around 6pm for a sunset.

you won't have a bad meal but it won't be great either. Its good food served quickly with big margaritas and other tequila drinks. I don't think you will be disappointed if you go here, but I thought it was just okay. They have formula and it works well for them. Get them in quickly serve them fast and seat... More

The food was ok but was ready in 5 minutes after we ordered, which is impossible for a restaurant so a assume it was already cooked. Guacamole was not made at the table, but just brought in a bowl. And the worst thing: the waiter tried to scam us out of 15% for the meal - he brought a second... More

My wife and I wanted to get out of the all inclusive hotel for a dinner out. This was a fun and lively place that had great sunset views and very good food. Great for a family outing. Highly recommend.
