This is a beautiful restaurant. I will have to say that I have never been to a Mexican restaurant that had such tasteless food. There is no spice or flavor! I had brunch here and the hot foods were served lukewarm. Always a danger sign for food poisoning and perhaps we were just lucky... but we wouldn't bother to chance it again...
It's hard to rate value on food that had no taste...it just wasn't worth it...

Large space, usually filled, on Webster Street. They do have parking, which is nice given the location.

We really enjoy the chicken mole, and will occasionally hit that side of the island for it, but just haven't found anything else on the menu we love.

Had a Groupon for this place which was also recommended to us by friends. The margaritas were decent. We ordered a variety of food - pork, chicken, beef, steak . . . most of which was bland or non-remarkable. The waiter was horrible. He came by and said he'd be right back, but wasn't back soon. He looked like he was so busy his head might spin off. After we'd been there an hour and it was clearing out, he was more personable but by then, we were disappointed. Later that night, I was sick to my stomach (none of the other 3 family members were) - I believe it was something from there but cannot be sure. BEWARE!
