We had a table of 9 and had to wait only 29 minutes. Food was and bartender was excellent. Our waiter was less than friendly. I doubt we would return.

Ate here for dinner and the food was excellent. I Had the ceviche sampler starter and surf and turf burrito. Both were so good I have no complaints. The wait staff was great and the food arrived quickly and piping hot right from the kitchen. Don't skip this restaurant if you are looking for Mexican food in Coronado. The chips,... More

If you want a great Mexican Restaurant for two or a big party, this is the place. The chips and cheese sauce and salsa they serve before the meal are great! The food is also very good.

In a busy Coronado bay and looking for somewhere to eat. A good selection of restaurants around but this place was full and had a great vibe, Mexican music and Tequila plus authentic homemade dishes. Even the nachos and pico de Gallo hit the spot. My son had a massive burrito and raved in about it for days, I had... More

I can't stop eating the white sauce and chips. By the time my meal arrives I'm stuffed. The service is good. The location is fine and so is the food. Can get very busy in the summer time. Good Million Dollar Margarita.

We love the cheese sauce served with the chips. Fish tacos were good and veggie enchiladas were very good. We forgot to ask if they have black beans as we prefer them over refried beans. They make delicious mock cocktails. We had the mock mojito. We usually eat here when we go to Coronado Island.

Food was just okay. Very salty and. It was hard to taste any real flavor. We ordered the guacamole and it was 9.00 and not fresh. The floured chips with it were simply gross. My daughter has a quesadilla and it was ok and my son fish tacos; okay as well. I could not eat my meal the salt and... More
