worst restaurant experience ever. Restaurant was almost empty on a Saturday night which should have been our warning! Bad service, bad food and bad attitude. Drinks watered down, food either tasteless or spiced to the point it was inedible. This restaurant should be shut down!...More

Warm Mexican atmosphere with the smell of mesquite wood burning. I have had many ceviches in my life, never half as good as this one. It was in November and I am still thinking about it.

The seafood enchiladas were amazing. We also had the guacamole trio and our favorite was the crab guacamole, followed by the bacon then the pomegranate. Nice and relaxing spot to enjoy dinner at

Upscale Mexican on the Fairmont property. Great service, atmosphere and food. The guacamole is a must try. The pork shoulder was amazing. A bit pricey, but worth it.
