We were very disappointed in this restaurant. Very limited mexican dishes. The food wasn't very good. The frozen margarita had no alcohol in it. I think they are trying to be too many different things. They should stick to mexican and give the other cuisines a miss.

You only ordered a plain cheese Quesdailla. We also pour the strongest drinks in town at a shot and a half of alcohol per drink. Maybe stick with the free cocktails evening offered at your resort. More

A break from thai food. Our frozen strawberry margarita was very refreshing, and we enjoyed our nachos, burritos, fajitas, quesadilla. Friendly staff, great food, pool table, go and try it!

And not a bad margarita either! We were there at a quiet time, so it lacked a little in atmosphere, but the service was friendly. My sister-in-law and I shared a fajita's (good size serving) which was really tasty, and probably one of my favorite meals in the week we spent on Khao Lak.

Had a great meal last night at the rusty pelican, started off with a jug of lemon frozen margarita, I ordered the chicken fajitas and my wife ordered the beef fajitas and both meals were great and so was the service.

We fancied a change from Thai food so decided to visit for some Mexican. We shared beef nachos for a starter then had the fajitas and the steak sandwich. All food was great and enjoyed by both of us. There is a free pool table which is fab, we had a couple of games after our meal with a drink.... More

My family of 8 and two nieces who are toddlers ordered a variety of meals off the menu and we're all very pleased. They have a pool table to keep you occupied while you wait. The service is excellent the waiter kept the toddlers entertained and was happy to do so. The owner is very welcoming and friendly. I would... More
