“Mixed impressions”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

I've gone twice to this place, first time was a poor/decent experience. Food was ok ambience was fine, service was slow. I only went back because some friends came to visit, read about the place and wanted to go mostly because of the "Trio". Terrible mistake, the service was slow, all 5 dishes were terrible, bland and one of them even borderline cold. I'm NEVER going back

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

Only three things:

1.- Bad service
2.- Bad food (the food is not even a really mexican food)
3.- Veeery expensive

Seriously guys, don't waste your time and don't waste your money in a bad restaurant like this one.

Food is no good, the service is long. It use to be an "in" place but don't waste your time. There are better mexican restaurants in Montreal.
