The restaurant is beautiful. The drink is a 20-oz concoction of white wine, squirt, pineapple, lemon, orange, grapefruit and cherries. We chose to have a... More

We were craving Mexican food after a day in the water. We got chips and salsa as soon as we sat. Yummy margaritas and cold beers for the adults, cold sodas for the children. Our waitress was patient and put up with the teens practicing their Spanish. The food was perfect and definitely hit the spot. Perfect meal in the... More

Nice Mexican spot, if you're craving some Mexican cuisine. The restaurant has a nice vibe, I ordered pozole and it was tasty. Some other family members had tostadas and everyone was satisfied with the food.

Depending on what you order, the food is tasty. The fish tacos are a bit bland. Overall, if in the mood for Mexican food - this will satisfy your craving. Service is good. I like their décor.

A childs meal (burrito w/French fries) & 2 tacos w/chips & salsa. $19.55. I guess being on an island at a tourist stop that's what you're going to pay. He was charged for the... More
