Great food. AmaZing staff. Chilled vibes and lovely music. Good deals too. Ernesto, Julia and Bhadri (who we have been meeting for three years now) are great staff and go the extra mile to make your meal/ evening perfect.

Expensive (for a couple trying to travel cheaply) but this taco dish was worth it. Plus the service was brilliant and the prices were similar to other (less nice) places nearby... Seriously recommend this prawn taco dish.

I was on Le Pearl show and afterwards I had dinner at these mexican restaurant. The food and drinks were delicious (specially the Gobernor taco and the mojito). The service provided by Ernesto was more than excellent, he made our experience very enjoyable.

We went to the 18.30 show at La Perle and Zoco's afterwards - they are located in the same building. The atmosphere is fun, although the tables look cheap with a big plastic bottle of hand sanitizer in the middle of each of them. Our...service was a bit over enthusiastic, he was always there to help but a bit too chatty and excited. The food is quite big portions - on the kids menu they have starters and mains. The starters are the same size as the main so unless your kid is a really really big eater you won't need both. I had the sea bass served over poblano rice. The rice was way too much but the fish was really really good. My husband had the fajitas - also great. My daughter had the quesadilla and my son the loaded fries. We also had a margarita to start - very yummy. I wouldn't go out of my way to dine here but if you are at La Perle it is a good choice.More

The food was really tasty, we even got some nachos as a treat while our food was getting prepared! We really enjoyed everything that was served, every single one of us (6 people). The Fajitas, Soup and Quesadillas were amazing, the deserts too! Andri was...very helpful and fun. Overall it was a pleasure!More

Went in for dinner and was informed by wait staff of the happy hour deal. Only a few minutes left for happy hour so we only ordered 2 drinks ( margarita and sangria) before the wait staff took our order. During the order process, we...inquired about the Late Night Brunch deal which included unlimited margaritas and sangrias. Once the bill came, I was charged for the happy hour drink which I felt should've been included in the brunch deal since I placed the order to include sangrias. It was NEVER communicated that the happy hour drink was separate from my order. I addressed this with wait staff and management, only to be dismissed and spoken to like I was unable to understand. Please don't come ask me if everything is ok during dinner too later dismiss me and be condescending to my issue when I want to address it. You only wish me a good night and a drink that I had already paid for which is really condescending. PLEASE DO BETTER because I most certainly believe that if I were of the white male/female persuasion that the outcome would be different. The fact that I was a paying patron and guest staying at the V Hotel should've been enough to try and better resolve my concern.More

We were looking for a place to have a drink and a bit of food after attending La Perle show. We ended up there, where they have different promotions every night. The place is beautiful , and the food was excellent. We tried the salad...bowl, Tex mex in spirit but with an Asian twist. Our best souvenir will be Ernesto our waiter from Cuba. Very friendly and attentive , we could practice our Spanish skills with him too. Excellent food, excellent ambiance and staff, we could not ask for more :)More

Hi there, Yes, branches are in buffet style, but they do as well meat and seafood pass around. Live taco/guacamole and margarita stations too. Overall - food and drinks are in rich variety. The branch is worth to try!!
