Absolutely delicious, upscale Mexican fare, reasonably priced. Prompt, personable service. A great new location with a patio. What more could you ask for? I love Vina Morita.

We stopped here for supper while visiting downtown Hot Springs. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. The wait staff is happy to make suggestions and describe dishes you may be unfamiliar with. They have many different varieties of salsa and you can pick two to order with tortilla chips. Many of the dishes are very different from the typical Mexican... More

Food was good with not the usual fare. Argentinian and Cuban influences. Tasty and interesting and we enjoyed it, but just thought it was a little pricey. Atmosphere was good and décor was nice.

Finally tried this place for a business meal. Its in the lobby of the Springs Hotel downtown. Nice atmosphere, varied menu of appetizers and meals. Nice selection of salsas to go with the obligatory chips. Really tasty, no kidding. Really good food that is unique for this area. Not your typical Tex Mex or Michocoan dish heavy menu here. Great...

We didn't eat! We just had a cocktail while shopping. Sat on the patio and chilled our beer while sipping the margarita simpler. The staff was so nice and helpful while making our selections.

I had dinner here last week and I am glad I did. My server was excellent. I ordered the salsa which comes with a choice of two. I had the verde and the morita. Both were very good. The chips were excellent. I also had the enchiladas chile morita. It came with rice topped with a dollop of guacamole and... More

Small meal big prices. The kid's meal of cheese quesadillas consisted of one tortilla folded over with some cheese inside and a small portion of rice (looks like they used a 1cup measuring cup to dish it out onto the plate) - $5.00 (my 6yr.old could have made a better quesadilla at home for less than 30 cents.) The other... More

Just plain excellent -- the food was great, the appetizer salsas absolutely amazing, the margarita the best we´ve had in years (no colored sugar water, just the necessary ingredients, well mixed and served), the ambiance very pleasing, For the quality of the kitchen and servers, it´s cheap. Add 50% to the price (lunch was $8.50 plus tip) and it´s still... More

Ate lunch with my husband here, first time since they moved. Really disappointed!!! It expensive and the food portions are tiny. I'm a little woman and I was still hungry.... Won't go back, too many better places to spend my money!

Enchiladas were great! Different salsas but not bad. You really should have a kids menu. Waitress didn't know how to pronounce our orders?
