Visited for the first time with a group of business colleagues on a Friday night. Mariachi band playing - great atmosphere. By far the most interesting Mexican food I’ve ever tasted. Must book to get a Friday night table! Fantastic!

Good Mexican restaurants are extremely rare in Spain. I am from California, so after living here for four years I really miss Mexican food! This place is the only good one on the Costa del Sol. Homemade chips, salsa, margaritas for starters. They have a...More

We came to this restaurant after seeing it from a bar. We are so glad we did. The food was excellent and the staff lovely. Short rib of beef was the best I’d ever had, so tasty and tender. What a great night
