“Excellent Mexican food in Port Douglas”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

I'd have to say I was a little skeptical of this restaurant considering I've lived in Southern California and have had a lot of great Mexican food. But we were not disappointed! We ordered the shredded beef taquitos for an appetizer and they were delicious. The shredded beef was very good and the tortillas were not soggy. I really enjoyed their guacamole too. For the main course I ordered the chicken chimichanga and it was really good. Lots of quality chicken inside the chimichanga. My husband ordered a couple of shredded beef tacos and he enjoyed them as well. We were there on a Saturday night and they were very busy but we got in with no reservations. If you're in the mood for Mexican food and you're in Port Souglas I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Tasty mexican experience”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

First had meal here 7 years ago and returned to find food and atmosphere consistently very good. Had the special barramundi ceviche main with salsa and guacamole dips as an entree and would highly recommend both, especially the tortillas and spicy flavours. The tequila cocktail, waiting staff and buzz of the restaurant really complemented the Mexican experience.

“Reasonably priced Mexican”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

A restaurant that serves good tasty Mexican food. Good sized portions and reasonably priced, there was plenty on the menu to choose from. The restaurant was always busy whenever we walked past so would recommend booking during the high season.

“Good Tex-Mex”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Went for the burrito's which were amazing, portions are big so come hungry. Atmosphere is good and the place filled up quickly so get there early. Definitely try the Mexican Fruit juice. Will be going back soon
