Bravo! A well prepared Mexican meal on Catalina. Our 4 adults and two young boys enjoyed a great meal with good service. The other Mexican restaurants on the island have a notorious history of bad food. Maggi's has a unique menu and a perfect location.

We had drinks and lunch at Maggie's right after we arrived on Catalina. We enjoyed the crab and corn empanadas and really loved the shrimp tacos. The tortillas are hand made and were really delicious. We had such great service and food that we went back for lunch the next day.
