Tried to have nice dinner with friends and regret it. First when we sat down, we waited for a waiter for nearly 20 mins just to have a menu. After that we waited about half an hour to get a meal. And to be honest, we'll be better not to had that meal in a first place. I had pork... More

The only reason I ended up here again is to get my margarita fix! It is as bad as ever. Only for the locals who are clueless about any kind of ethnic cuisine here. And the prices keep going up.

Nice ambient and atmosphere, but average food and service, too expensive for quality. You can find better tortillas on streetfood.
