I was lucky enough to score a $15 g/c from Restaurant.com for this restaurant and we went for lunch our first day on the island. Really adorable (though warm) interior and tasty food. Loved the iced herbal tea. I had the ceviche and it was delish. Very friendly waitstaff. Quick service.

We were surprised that a 20% minimum tip was slapped on to the bill before we had even finished the order... that was especially irksome since we had to order at the counter and bus our dirty dishes. The food was good, though it was very slow - and the restaurant was almost empty. What was that all about? The fried crisps offered whilst we waited were nice.

Been here a few times over the last two years. I love sitting outside perched above the harbor area. The food is excellent, everything made to order and delicious. It is a great place to go on the island for an inexpensive lunch. The tortillas are handmade. The specials are my favorite thing to order, and the fish tacos. I miss the green sauce they had on the tables last year, hopefully that will be back!

This was our second dinner here this spring. The food was great both times and the husband and wife who run the place are very nice. Decor is very nice also. Everything is authentic Mexican. We will be back. BYOB also which is great.
