This place has very loud live music, slow service, charges an obligatory 15% tip and has unremarkable dishes. The cost of the meal is well above average in Mexico. Avoid if possible.

It’s a cosy restaurant with live music. They serve Mexican food. There is a variety of vegetarian options. The food is good and the place is romantic. I think it’s good to be there.
