Really good range of options here, and what we chose (veggie burritos, guacamole) were really nice. Service was, if anything, a little bit too super quick with all the food arriving together an virtualy immediately. We ordered two veggie burritos, but our waiter misheard and only brought one. He was profusely apologetic about this, but the second one turned up in about 90 seconds, so no problem at all. Wine was very cheap too, and not bad quality.

We ate here on our first night as it was on the hotels list of "recommended" restaurants. We were attracted by the bright colours and traditional Mexican decor. There was also a beautiful aroma coming from the kitchen so we couldn't resist. We were seated next to the homemade tortilla lady which was interesting to watch and helped pass the time. Unfortunately the food did not live up to the aroma coming from the kitchen. It was ok, it looked good, but just tasteless. Maybe we just ordered the wrong thing! It's still a decent restaurant and worth a try so I wouldn't avoid it.

Everything authentic and home made. Great service. The waiters work very hard here. Good deals on drinks and pitchers. Home made tacos before your eyes! Excellent pico de gallo. Excellent grilled fish. Love it here! And wonderful ambience and colours!!
