The food we had here was absolutely delicious and well worth it, the price was extremely reasonable by Canadian prices and I would highly recommend going... I will be back one day one of my favourite eating spots by far.

We shared the Tacos Pastor and the Pork short rib tacos and both were bursting with flavour!!! I wish I had one in my home city. Service was amazing and the atmosphere is so cute! Definitely come here for some tacos!

Wow!!! Was sampling food around this area and decided to try Maria Bonita. Glad I went in. Great flavor and presentation. Food and drinks were very good. Plus an Instagram worthy wall of flowers for those pics 📸 went in.

We were looking for something different in Cartagena, and Mexican food fit the bill. We went there, and had tacos with octopus and nopales (cactus), which were small. The tacos are soft and small, but they fill you up. We also shared chicken mole, which...More
