Authentic Mexican food. We had the vacation sized margaritas. I don’t even like margaritas that much but I loved these. Very tasty. Probably the high quality of the tequila makes all the difference. Appetizer was great but the show really started with our main meal....More

Our second trip to Cancun and second to this restaurant. The food and service are very good. Recommend the Molcajetes, wonderful. Get the chicken or something other than the steak though as ours was stringy and fatty. This in no way dampens our enthusiasm for...More
