The atmosphere is friendly but the food is mediocre. It's also very noisy when all tables booked. Would recommend just for drinks.

The place is located just behind porta Genova station, it is easily reachable. The food is decent. The cocktails and the Margarida especially are fantastic. If you don't fancy having dinner, you should sit at the bar and order a Margarida. It is really worth it!

We booked a table for four...after 10 min hezitation we got a table.The atmosphere was quite fine, typical mexican, dishes ok, had much better though, no value for the money you pay - starters 10-15 euro, main dishes and fajitas 15 -20 euro. Wine 20 - 35 euro.
Service was slow, not attentive, and they will cheat you if there is a chance! We ordered a couple of margaritas for the fine price of 8 euro each...at the end of the evening the digestives were suggested, letting you with the impression they were almost on the house, even though I asked expressively that they shoud offer it at the price of regular "amaro"....e.g. 3-4 euro...after I was politely assured "not to worry at all" I had just about 15ml of "very fine rum"...when pay time came, this little pleasure was quoted for 8.5 euro! Damn!! I reccomed you people, stay away! There are much more fine places with more honest prices and service and better quality price value! Just to wrap it up, dinner for 4, 1 entry, 2 margaritas, 2 main courses, 1bottle of wine, 2 desserts, coffe+ the very special rum = 160 euro!!

We went here for tea and it was delicious. The staff were friendly and all had great service. My partner and I had the mixed taco plate which was a big serve both feeling very full afterwards. It is a little bit pricey being 16.50 euros each plus drinks but was worth it. Overall was great night out and looking forward to eating there again.
