Great margaritas. Amazing food. Fish tacos and nachos were excellent. Great conch fritters. Great service too.

“Just Awful”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Looked like fun, but yuck, could't even finish my Margarita and I love to drink and was on vacation. The guacamole had barely an avocado in it, filled with cheap tomatoes and onions, If that wasn't bad enough my Chicken Enchilada was just a big mess of stringy chicken covered in store bought processed cheese. Not sure if there was even a tortilla in the ugly, tasteless mess. Left the meal after 2 bites, and could only stomach a sip of my drink. I went home hungry, and a bit angry.

What's to like? Bitter, overworked staff, slow service, high prices on food and drinks, mediocre Mexican food. TOURIST TRAP - steer clear!

“Stay Away!!! This place is a scam and a rip off!! Beware!!”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

I ordered the daily Tuna Taco special off the board , with no
prices listed. They bring out a plate with 3 taco shells flat
and on each are two of the thinest slices of tuna , small small
pices , a few pieces of lettuce and some mayo kind of
stuff squirted on top. $30 for this lunch special

Boycott this scam!!!!! I own restaurants and this is shameful !!

“Good Times”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

This is the first place my wife and I stopped for a meal in St. John. It was early afternoon and service was great as was the food. We had a dinner guest (a chicken) which the waiter mangaed to stave off for a great portion of out time there with a water gun.
