Booked for 20:30 arrived at 20:15. After being ignored for 10 minutes someone finally took us to our table. Service is really, really but really slow... At 21:30 finally food came... barely eatable... Asked for chicken fajitas but never saw any like those in any mexican restaurant and better than that is the fact that they only bring two baby...

We ordered nachos and chili, both with terrible presentation. Looks like dog's food. Over priced,never come back again.

The only good thing about this restaurant is the river view. I love Tex-Mex or Mexican food. I am pretty forgiving but I could not believe the sloppiness of the restaurant. The basic guacamole was a disaster. It tasted like mayonnaise or cream... GUACAMOLE!! We were a family of 4, No alcohol and spent 84 EUROS for a simple lunch.... More

As some one from the Midwest I have a deep love for Tex Mex and Latin American cuisine. The décor and setting is wonderful. Clean with vibrant colors and the required sombreros on the wall. The restaurant is located on a beach with outdoor space that allows for the kids to run around while the parents dine. I would recommend... More

Shame for the poor quality... More

This is a must try at lunch. They offer special lunch menus and a free marguerita at Monday :) The atmosphere is quiet nice and cozy. I advise to arrive earlier at lunch time (before 1 p.m.) or you will have to wait.

First time in a mexican restaurant and I had a good experience. We (2) ate at the promenade during lunch hour, we arrived early and had reservation, I recommend to make a reservation because the restaurant was full when we were leaving. We ate the veggie and chicken Tacos, some Nachos, some Margaritas and coffee, paid around 58 euros. The... More

Great view, good service, good food! By going at lunch time it was possible within the group on my table to choose the different menus (some menus with starters and the other menus with deserts and share it) and so the ratio price/quality is really good and better enjoy the outside view near the river. When choosing the lunch menus... More

I continue to come to this place only because of the Margaritas, and the most amazing view of the river!!! The service is the worst in town, and the quality/cost of the food is not good at all!!!
