I'm a regular at this super good Mexican restaurant! Britt and Connie have done it again! They started with the super busy always good restaurant, Local Flavor, and now they are bringing gourmet flavor to their newest restaurant, Aquarius. Britt's family has lived in Eureka Springs for generations, and Connie, originally from California, was missing the Mexican food vendors of her childhood, and used her happy food memories as inspiration in creating their super duper menue. I usually get an assortment of different tacos, and I always get a plantain (a type of fried banana) taco, which I enjoy as a dessert! The atmosphere is a retro beatles theme, with unique interest in every corner.
During the summer, twice a month, they host Melon light Dance Studio with a night of salsa dance lessons and Salsa dance party! Aquarius is one of my favorite restaurants in Eureka Springs!

Delicious drinks on a fun patio.
Their guacamole is delicious with their housemade chips -- friendly service too.

This is our "go to" place in Eureka Springs. We had the sampler appetizer which had several different kinds of salsa and guacamole. I can not remember all of the different kinds of salsa, but there was tomatillo, hot salsa, sour cream, amazing guacamole, pineapple salsa, smoky tomatillo, mild salsa....all with homemade chips. Seriously delicious.
The Asada tacos are simply amazing. The beef is cooked with just the right amount of seasoning, topped with chopped onions and cilantro a couple of radish slices, and placed on two scrumptious corn tortillas and served with a lime. The tacos are $3.50 each but two can fill me up and I am a big eater. The teenagers (read bottomless pits) could only eat 3 tacos! The family had the fish tacos and chicken tacos too and gave rave reviews. Seriously can't go wrong here.
They hibiscus tea is wonderful too!

We ate here twice in our visit. I had the Asada Tacos and the Carnitas taco. My wife had the fish taco and a shrimp dish. We loved our food. We had the combo app that included homemade tortillas chips, salsa, and guacamole. The guacamole is excellent and I don't even like guacamole. This is not Tex-Mex. Don't expect any queso dip. All in all our experience was wonderful
