We opted to sit upstairs under the palapa. Adorned with Mexican trinkets hanging from the ceiling, it was a great setting to have a Mexican meal. The food was good quality and good value. I would recommend this restaurant doe a colourful Mexican meal.

The restaurant owner was extremely accommodating and clearly very proud of his establishment. Food is excellent and service is quick and friendly, and prices were very good. The restaurant is decorated beautifully which also adds to the atmosphere.

There were 22 of us, so we had a little bit of everything on the menu. My caeser salad was just right, the other meals were a hit and the whole cooked fish was delicious and tender! But the real highlight was the Saturday Night...More
