We had a couple of their Cadillac margaritas (a little before noon but were on vacation) they were great and to top it off our waiter rolled out a cart and made us salsa right there and served it with some warm chips. later that...day after burning through our cash at all the local shops and wanting to take a bike taxi home i popped in and asked if we could buy some shots and get 20 cash back added to the bill the bartender smiled and said of course. My only regret was not getting back there for dinner. Also try getting the ring on the peg or if your very adventurous get hoisted like a marlin.More

Nothing authentically Mexican about the place. Food was OK. Prices were OK. Floor "show" was a bit ribald and embarrassing but each to their own I suppose. Probably a good place to go with a group to get drunk and party to 80's music- if...that's what you're after.More

Average. Just a commercialized place geared toward the tourists. Not sure what they had what would ever bring me back in the door.

If you love heat Mexican Style, be sure to stop in for some table side or in our case bar side prepared fresh salsa. Mucho great and goes well with a beer or two. We took a bottle home with us.

Best salsa in the world. Secret- they roast the peppers. They make it at the table as well as the excellent guacamole.

We went at about 5pm on a monday and there was 1 couple at the bar that's it. Then another group of 6 came in. It was kind of strange for a place this famous to be empty. To the Marlin's credit the tried to...make a party out of it. One of guys was having a birthday and they brought up and gave him shots. It did get annoying that a young lady kept blowing her whistle loudly with so few in the place. We had some appetizers and drinks and left with only the couple left. Maybe it's a great place later in the evening.More
