Planned on coming here for dinner with large party. Wish I had been warned they are not equipped for large parties. Upon arrival, servers were just plain rude. Wish I caught one woman's name... Crammed our group against the wall where back row had to move iron round tables to get to their seats. The restaurant is a very small... More

Stopped in for lunch - we were 2 couples and a baby and were promptly seated. Cool kind of hipster vibe. Drinks (bloody Mary's and Downeast hard cider on tap) were exceptional. For food others in our party ordered quesadillas and chicken tacos. Chicken tacos were deemed "best taco I've ever tasted" and quesadillas were excellent too. I tried their... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The menu was a bit limited but the food was great. Fresh and everything made from scratch, no bought in re-heats here. Relaxed atmosphere with modern decor and good value for money.

We looked at the menu and the food sounded great! Very disappointing when it came out. The place is cold, dark, noisey, the staff are disinterested at best, the tables were dirty, the food very ordinary. On our way home we walked past a restaurant with yellow and white awnings, don't know what it was called but it was packed... More

The margaritas were very good. The service was good. The quality of the food was very good. Atmosphere: was ok Food: Duck empanadas very good, tacos were bland, too much lettuce and the rice was awful. We tried fried cod tacos and pork belly tacos.

Ate here recently when the weather is starting to cool down. Not sure if its open year round, as the floor is a patio, and parts are covered by plastic tenting. We were seated right away at this casual mexican restaurant. The kitchen is out in the open, which gives a unique feel. We started with the margaritas, which were... More

Has a nice 'dia de los muertos' style to it, so my slightly goth daughter picked the place for lunch. Food was good, the Ahi Poke appetizer was really creative and delicious, nice kick to the chips. Definitely seek out the fresh fish dishes, and go to drink. They have a great drink menu, an friendly funky vibe, limited indoor... More

There are not many good Mexican places around Newport, so this one will do. Items on the menu look more exiting than they really are.

We enjoyed a light lunch of margaritas and Diego nachos with hanger steak. Good location, good service. Looks like it is pretty fun at night. I regretted we didn't catch breakfast on the weekend.

We came here for lunch and didn't expect much. We chose the place because it has a dog friendly patio and we had the pup with us. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was! Loved the shredded pork springrolls and Korean bbq tacos. The "perfect quesadilla" was not too special but good for picky eaters as it... More
