Not what it used to be. Caesar salad was god awful and the tacos were as dry as shoe leather. Had to call it quits before main enter. Staff knows it too. Sad, we used to really like this place.

Best margarita ever! Traditional dishes in fancy and cozy environment. Great service too. We went there to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and had a great time. A little bit of mosquitos but we sat by the lagoon, so It was expected.
