This is the authentic Mexican and picante flavors I was looking for! It's hard to find spicy and the flavors at other places isn't as robust as this spot! Go for the Taco Trio for an easy safe pick, 3 tacos with pollo carne chorizo...blend with a trio of salsas including the house specialty Super Picante with habanero peppers!More

Best of very few Mexican joints in town. Delicious. Generous portions. Great margaritas. But only frozen.

One of my favorite places to eat in Montanita. The chef prepares the food with such love and it shows. I've eaten here 10+ times and never had a bad experience. Also very affordable. Great margs to start any weekend. Highly recommend! Extremely professional.

The food always is good and fresh right there, with the right portions, a plate can share with 2 people, and the staff and the atention is so gentle.

I always eat half a dish, but in this little cosy restaurant I ate EVERYTHING! My dish was encocado marinero. Advice to everyone. My boyfriend had arroz encocado de Camaron. Both dishes were magic! Really well surprised. The prices are adequate

We happened to stop by during the low season but still quite busy with locals. We wanted to have Mexican food and had planned to stop by here specifically. Turned down three solicitors right before we walked in. The person in charge was quite nice...and glad he sold us on those Melon drinks that were quite refreshing. Husband got the tacos with mixed beef and chicken. I got the enchilladas and they reminded me of growing up in California. The food was delicious and I recommend you come here at least once during your stay!More

We went to this restaurant based on reviews here in Trip Advisor. What a disappointment! The food was just so-so at best. Actually reminded me of the frozen shredded tacos that you can pick up pre-made at just about any grocery store. Firstly, forget about...the menu or the menu board out in front of the restaurant. Don't waste your time! If you want it - they likely don't have it. Just ask them what they have. We had a chicken enchalada and it was ....m'eh. It was edible, but just. And as for all the reviews here stating otherwise? Maybe we just got a bad night? Not sure but here's what I AM sure of ... we won't go back!More

We had been looking for decent Mexican food in Montañita for over three weeks before we came across this place. The food was delicious, reasonably priced and the service was great. We ordered the enchiladas and the California burrito and both were great. Other places...in town offer burritos but this was easily the only thing close to Mexican burritos.More

Our group of four adults had an excellent meal! We started with the nachos and they were fabulous-served with guacamole and three different salsas. For main dishes we had the shrimp tacos, a quesadilla and a burrito. All were wonderful. Our waiter was friendly and...helpful. We will return!More
