Stone-sour "margaritas", guacamole from a jar, hardly cooked shrimp microwaved in a bland sauce and olives in a tortillawrap with cheese on top (the vegetarian option). No trace of cilantro. I have no idea what I just ate, but it's as close to Mexican food...More

We love this restaurant already for many years, through which they remained consistent in the triple aim: perfect dishes, excellent client service and indeed the best margaritas in town. From mild to hot 'n' spicy, there's a dish for everybody and even kids love it....More
