Our hotel recommended we are so glad they did. I had a trio of tacos, tuna, shrimp and fish. They were all so good. Tuna was my favorite. The mango sauce they serve it with is quite yummy. It has just enough sweet and spice....More

Love this place, went here twice over the course of one weekend because we liked the food so much. The tacos are amazing, and they have this other dish called Campos something that's like little enchiladas covered in a ranchero and queso sauce, also amazing!
