The food and drinks are so good, the ambiance and service make it even more enjoyable. The outside patio is delightful! The perfect lunch spot while shopping this wonderful Arts and Crafts Village of Tlaquepaque!

The restaurant was a cool respite on a hot day, after a big morning hike. Drinks were good, chips & salsa tasty, service was fine. Our meals were huge and just okay Nothing bad to say about this place, just nothing special.
