Amazing food and great service. We all loved it. There was a great selection for the kids and the adult food was perfect. Big portions too so go hungry.

Wonderful food, lovely Mexican Restaurant with great decor. Fabulous menu. The staff are so helpful offering me a sample of the chilli just to make sure it wasn't too spicy for me. Thank you to all who made our visit very special. Look forward to returning in May 2017.

We were recommended this Mexican restaurant and were not dissapointed. We were made to feel at home and when we asked how hot one of the dishes were, we were offered a sample!!! What an excellent idea. Thoroughly enjoyed the traditional food. Excellent service and hospitality.

My wife and I visited this restaurant several times during a recent stay in Lanzarote. The food is fantastic and cooked fresh. If you want it a bit spicier there is no problem. The staff are very attentive and helpful. Nothing is to much trouble. Top tip. To avoid disappointment make sure that you make a reservation as it is... More

We booked this restaurant the night before as it was absolutely packed out. I myself do not like Mexican food but my daughter and my husband do so I really went just for them. They really liked their food but I got ribs which were fine but nothing like the ribs you get in the Cockerel Country Kitchen in Albufeira.... More
