This restaurant is riding on its past glories. Although it was favorably reviewed...(don't know how long ago) by several newspapers and magazines, my dining experience there, in Feb. 2008 was very disappointing. My husband had one of the house specialities, Chile Rellano and he reported it was soggy, and terrible, as if it were not fresh, it had been in the kitchen for hours and just reheated. I had the coconut shrimp. It was not half as good as the shrimp I ate at the modest beach restaurants that served really fresh and delicious shrimp in any style. The shrimp dish was about $28 and it was somewhat rubbery. For dessert we ordered a chocolate crepe. I started to eat it and at first I couldn't figure out what was wierd about it. Then I realized that this was not a crepe. It was a tortilla rolled up like a cigar and smothered with chocolate syrup.
The meal was pricey and just not worth it. Go there for a drink. It is conveniently located downtown, the ambience is pleasant and there was a two piece musical group playing and singing lovely Mexican and Spanish classics.
