Ok, I was excited to try this place after reading all the excellent reviews on here.
All I can say is wow, was I mislead!
This is was a total disappointment in just every way possible.
The food is not even close to authentic Mexican. Granted in comparison to most Mexican restaurants in the lower mainland it comes a little bit closer than the "Mexican" inspired cuisine usually served.
The carne asade was seasoned with what seems to be montreal steak spice. The carnitas were dry and lacking seasoning. The only bright spot was the green salsa, that is pretty much the only thing I read on here that was accurate.
The service, or lack of, was the real disappointment. They seemed understaffed for the dinner hours to start with, having only 2 waitresses working. It was made worse when as we tried to pay and leave we discovered that only one of the waitresses can actually ring up the bills. That is 25 minutes of my life that I will not get back that I had to spend waiting to give my money to someone. I can cut them some slack for being understaffed, ok it happens, but how can only one person in the entire restaurant operate the register? That is utterly ridiculous.
The crappy service could be forgiven if the food was worth it, but it is not.
I do not recommend this place, and I question the validity of the reviews posted here because there were a lot of unhappy customers there besides me.
