“Good veggie options and hot sauce”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Really enjoyed this meal while in Singapore. It gets pretty full- as do all of the eateries in Clarke Quay- in the evenings. I had the roasted pumpkin soft tacos, which were perfect. My husband ordered the Chicarrón Burrito and did not enjoy it as much- he gave it an 'average'. The menu had several veggie options. Also enjoyed the house made habanero hot sauce. The chips were much lighter than the 'typical' Tex-Mex style (i.e. less greasy.) The drink list included a variety of the cocktails you would expect, in addition to a couple of alcohol free cocktails.

“Wholesome & Delicious Food”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Singapore. I never fail to take visiting friends over. The food is delicious - the highlights for me are their Guacamole, which is always fresh and well seasoned, the Burrito Bowl, which has lovely flavours and all my favourite Mexican add-ons, and the Jalapeno-Cheese sticks, which were unfortunately a temporary menu item!
A couple of improvements: Their Chocolate Shots are amazing but the rest of their cocktails are very average and not worth the price you pay. The vegetarian options are limited and currently, full of pumpkin, which is not ideal. However, they are very receptive to feedback and one of their managers actually emailed me after I filled-in the feedback form, which increases their credibility for me.

“Amazing food and drinks. Be smart about the cost.”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Eating here can get expensive. Unless you plan ahead. I did and it was awesome. Margaritas on weekends are cheapest between 12pm-3pm and progressively get more and more expensive as evening approaches. So go for lunch if you want to save money on drinks.
Great view of the river. Friendly staff, but they look slightly overworked.
Food's great, optimum serving size. Must go if you are looking for Mexican food in Singapore! There are so few of this and this is on the top of the list for me.

“Favorite weekend dinner restaurant ”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 via mobile

This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit over the weekend for a really good and casual Mexican dinner. Beef fajita is my personal favorite but any other dishes are equivalently delicious!

“Good food, reasonable prices - you do pay for the view”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

Large portions (mainly) which meant that we should have listened to our waitress, who told us we'd ordered too much! Still, they will always prepare a 'doggie bag'.

Ask for an outdoor table - they're covered so even if its raining, you'll get the view but you won't get wet!
