“Great atmosphere, outdoor area very pleasant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

It was a great afternoon outside on the terrace beer was cold, afternoon warm, very pleasant for sure.
Ordered a few dishes, taco with pork, melted cheese with chorizo, both were just warm enough not to complain and cold enough to not really enjoy. The Guacomole was runny and not cold enough, the Nachos were fine.
Pity they couldn't get this right. The last time here it was great all the food came out perfect, however the Mexican manager was not in this afternoon, and this was definitely reflected in the quality and taste of what came out of the kitchen.
The cocktails were good and the waitress quite responsive ( for china).
Note to self - check if the Mexican is working when I next want to come here to eat.
I will come back, it was clean, comfortable and very pleasant, certainly enough to forgive the shortcomings in the food.
Another small grip - no credit card facilities - I can not believe in this day and age I couldn't use any credit cards - that's it - cash only!!!

“Best western restaurant in Kunming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

For non-Chinese food this is my favorite restaurant in Kunming.

Not the cheapest place to eat but unless on a backpacker budget very reasonably priced.
The restaurant produces modern Mexican cuisine, artfully presented with great taste.
As with almost any restaurant in China, service is spotty and requires active solicitation of the servers. Several nights per week they have great guitar and bongo music.

The owner chef is always present but it must be said that hs visibility to guests and guest relations skills leave much to be desired.

Nonetheless, all is forgiven since the food is so old and they have some rare very high quality tequilas.

Great place. Highly recommended

“Refreshing, different, stylish.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

I saw some of the pictures on trip advisor of this restaurant and decided it was worth a look. Like one of the other people who has written a review I was also told I had to wait until 4.30 to eat. This was a little bit frustrating but I was in no hurry.

I ordered nachos a pork dish and a chocolate moose desert. The food was amazing, normally I associate Mexican food with tex mex style burritos and fajitas which I also like a lot, but this place had chosen to make their menu more stylish and different from the average tex mex. I thought it was a nice touch, very well done, presentation and taste of food was arguably the best I've eaten in China although pistorella in Shanghai is also very good. This one definitely deserves a look for any fan of fine dining. Prices are standard western restaurant prices but food is worth it.

“Good Food; Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

I recently dined at this restaurant with two of my colleagues. The dishes are not authentic Mexican , but for China they are far better than average for what passes here as Mexican food. The owner is quite anxious to please and sent our table three dishes of sauer cream for our nachos and other orders when our original dishes did not include them. All you have to do is ask. The service is very good. The quality of the food is better than average as well, although the prices are a bit steep. There is also outside dining available. Stick to the basics and you will be fine.
