“I was extremely disappointed.”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

The food was ok, not that good. When we arrived, they said they had 50% off if we paid with American Express. At the time we where going to pay, they said that it has to be a Costarican American Express card. We were extremely angry since the restaurant is located in a tourist area and it is obvious that tourists do not have the Costarican American Express card and they waited to the end to say it. I'm from Puerto Rico and in my country False Advertisement is a crime that is paid by a penalty of $10,000.

“Quantity fine, quality needs work”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

We went for w fast lunch and service was fine with everything being timely delivered. The prawn caesar salad was nothing like the picture showed, but it was average and no real reason to complain. Portion was good. The "picante" chicken wings were only a little spicy but taste of the sauce was good nonetheless. The downside though was, the wings were not heated through so they are obviously prepared in advance and warmed up..... Not what you want from a restaurant. Would not recommend or go back.

“Decent Mexican food”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

The food here was reasonable, and it is walking distance from the Marriott Courtyard. The chips were okay and served with three sauces. We also had some guacamole that was very chunky but had good flavor. Be sure to have an Imperial... it makes everything taste better!

“Nice Mexican Food - 2 Visits so far!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

The place itselft is very nice. First time we visited the restaurant was a friday night, trova live music after 9pm, very romantic. Food is good but not super delicious for the price you're paying. The attention was good. I had some Nachos, didn't quite like them. I've had better ones. Second time we visited the food was great. It's a cute, different and nice place to spend a night together with your beloved!
