Stumbled across this lovely place as we visited Steveston. Have been looking for a authentic Mexican restaurant for a long time and this is it!! Do not understand 95Faith as with speaking with the owner absolutely everything made from scratch including daily made salsa and chips. You can definetly taste the homemade flavours.

A dinner out from a "can"!!!! I can't believe they can actually call it a Mexican food....Very, very poor...it should be rated negative!

First time visit. Recommended by a friend. Great selection of tacos, fish, shrimp, chicken, pork, and vegie with a selection of different toppings. Nice to have such a variety to select from then the typical tex me fare. It was nice and fresh too. I had the vegie taco which was a bit spicy for me but I'm a wimp... More

We were here on a rainy winter night and had the best authentic Mexican food that we've experienced in years. No big plates of beans and rice swimming in melted goo, but healthy and delicious flavours that highlight the best of Mexican cuisine. The menu has many options that caused us to take our time ordering as we contemplated the... More

Ordered the "2016 award winning Ensenda Fish Taco" . We both ordered them and have had them in the past, months ago. So where did that chef go? These were totally tasteless, even used the "bottled" tasting salsa that came with the chips to try to give them some flavor. But any restaurant can have a bad day and when... More

This place is awful, please save your money and go else where. We ordered 4 dishes and half of our dishes was incredibly salty and half was really bland. It was so bad that when the hostess (who I think is the owner) asked us how it was, we had to tell her. Trust me, we usually do not say... More

Visited this restaurant after many years and both my wife and I were very disappointed with the food, which is also very over-priced. We started off with some type of fish taco appetizer, which was not bad. Then my wife had a 3 chicken enchilada(?) meal with refried beans and rice - it was completely tasteless. I had chicken fajitas,... More

Hadn't eaten here in years and years and decided to give it a try and take our out of town guests here for dinner Saturday night. Well they don't have burritos or chimichangas for adults - I think they have it for kids but an adult can't order it! The enchiladas were the weirdest ones I've ever seen, but I... More

We were hoping we found a place with decent Mexican food. The food was ok. But no where near worth the price I paid. Its quality was pretty much the same as Taco Bell. Don't get me wrong I do like taco bell, but its not the food I want when I take the wife out for something special. The... More

Maybe we came on a bad day. The other reviewers seem to like this place. My group thought that it was awful. This is NOT Tex Mex food. It is Mexican style food. It's not very good Mexican food. There was not a lot of flavor in the food. The salsa was bland. It was not out of a jar,... More
