The Salsa & Chips were great. For an Appetizer we had the ANGELS ON HORSEBACK* Three grilled shrimp with white cheese,... More

We've lived close to Austin for 20 years and never heard of this place. It's a great place with delicious food. The chips and salsa would be their weakest area. The ceviche las brisas was excellent as was the rest of the food that we ordered. The service was superb and we can't wait to go back.

I am sorry I really am I really wanted to like this place. Just hear me out I am not another person who craps on everything just because I had bad service. I am completely honest with each aspect. 1. The service: My spouses father walks up to the host table and they literally just stare at him. No hello,... More

Fonda us another Austin place that needs no rave reviews but whatever! We arrived several minutes late for our reservation but they were very gracious and understanding. Our waiter was special. He explained all the specials and made good recommendations . The spacing of the appetizers to the entrees was perfect. I have had Mexican food in many places including... More
