Went here with friends and colleagues for a business lunch while at a conference in San Diego. The chips and salsa were outstanding! I had the seafood enchiladas which came with black beans. Others had the fish tacos. All of our meals were nothing short of excellent! The atmosphere was indeed exciting, fun and colorful just as advertised. Great Dos... More

We LOVED this restaurant! Everything from the food to the atmosphere was amazing. The soup, tacos and ceviche were delicious, and the waiters were really kind explaining all the different plates and recommending places to go to in San Diego, as we are visiting here and this is our first time. We have already come here 3 times in our... More

The bar area has free finger food (when you purchase drinks) for a couple of hours a night (you'll have to check out their web-site). There are lots of little touristy shops in the area -... More

Located in Old Town which makes it easy to find. The parking is really bad with most on the street. Most lots are off limits and saw a car get towed, so beware. Sitting was quick, about 15 mins. The place itself was fun and very much alive with music and a band wandering around. The food was what we... More

I thought the ceviche and mixed seafood tacos we're mediocre, but the carne Asada tacos and margaritas were excellent and we parked for free and walked around after. That was nice.

Ate at this restaurant on a Saturday night. I was meeting up with family at 4:30... EARLY (but I had just come in from Wisconsin so it was 6:30 my time). OMG, the place was busy and hopping. We did get a table in 15 minutes. The service was great. We ordered food immediately. The food was more than great...... More

This some of the best Mexican food we've ever tasted. Every dish, regardless of combination, was deliciously well-prepared. The service & entertainment were excellent & the prices were reasonable.

Just stopped in for guacamole and margaritas. Great atmosphere on the outdoor patio. I loved the colorful flags and umbrellas. Lovely staff too.

Very nice restaurant, portions are very large. We ordered a burrito which was huge and very tasty. Also had some proper margaritas.
