We were a table of 4. Thought we would give it a try as from the outside it looked quite good. Drinks were Ok nice and cold and cocktails well made. Menu typically as the restaurant is named Mexican and Carribean food. Service a bit slow with staff needing some training.We asked for 2 separate bills but this was ignored.... More

Quiet and uncrowded the 3 times I've been there. The mexican food is ok, but nothing surprisingly good. The kind of place I'd go back to when hungry, but wouldn't go out of my way for.

Awesome experience. Decent tacos. Hispanic music and spacious seating. Would recommend to friends, digital nomads... They have a salsa bar, juices, well lit... One drawback is its right next to the road, so I'm wearing my motorbike mask while working on my computer...

Chara has a good vibe and a variety of dishes to choose from. It is right near our villa so quite handy for a quick nachos and guacamole snack anytime. Last night eight of us went there for dinner and everyone enjoyed their meal. My Dad said his fish tacos were a bit too spicy, but that's what happens when... More
