Great staff, great drinks and really stellar food. Basa tacos and the tacos al Carbon were some of the best I've had. The salsa were different and delicious! Really good.

I can only attest to the Basa tacos and chips and salsas. Everyone has different tastes of course so my experience of the food is just that, my own. Tacos were fresh, fish was tasty and there certainly was enough on the tacos to taste...More
