Its very far from proper mexican food, everything seems to have been pulled out of the freezer and microwaved just before serving. The waiters are unaware and more interested in gossiping behind the counter than doing their job. Nothing positive to say.

We visited here due to the guide book reccomendation. Although the place is has a nice interior and the waitress was very friendly, the food let it down. We shared tacos which tasted more like Asian stir fry than Mexican food. There's plenty of other...More

Took the kids for Mexican food. They serve a good size portion, more than enough for one person, or two!! Food fresh and really tasty. Local hangout, has a good vibe. Reasonably prices. Good experience will go again!

This is the place to go if you want something different than steak. Good Mexican food and great Mojito's. There is only one vegetarian option but it is good.

We'd heard good things about this place, but the first time we tried to come, the door was locked, and we were told to return after 19:30, though a sign outside stated it was happy hour from 18:00-19:00. We tried the next day, and we...More

Being a fan of Mexican food I was pleasantly surprised at the menu on offer and very happy when the food came! Good drinks menu to go with cocktails to match my likening. Tastefully decorated and reasonably priced.

We went to this place for lunch on a cold winter day. The place is one of the coolest ambiance Mexican restaurants I’ve been to anywhere. It’s a 2 story building with lots of colonial touches - partially exposed brick in its inside walls and...More
