We were looking for reasonably priced Mexican food in San Jose and found it. Great food and large portions. The Molcajete and Fajitas were very good. Garlic shrimp and quesadilla were good, but not as good as the Molcajete and the Fajitas. We had a coupon from our resort for free round of margaritas and those were good. They have... More

Went here because how close it was to our hotel and trip advisor recommendations. Fun atmosphere and great staff. A must have is Mojete of any kind. It is a stone bowl heated very, very hot and your choice of meal is still cooking in this bowl when it is brought to the table. Amazing flavors that you then place... More

Brought a party of 14 after jeep tour and before SHOPPING in San Jose. There is covered palapa seating with good fan coverage - even for mid-day. We have been coming here for 7 years. The service and attention to details is always excellent. Highly recommend their clay pot dishes - excellent options and tastes!!
