“Grilled mahi burrito”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

We love fish tacos since a trip to Hawaii, so we were attracted to this little place tucked away in the Crossroads Shopping Village. While looking at the menu we decided on the grilled Mahi Mahi burritos instead. Great choice. The burrito was huge and tasted great. Prices very reasonable. They also have a salsa bar with mild, med, spicy and hot salsa to add to your tacos or burritos. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have seating both inside and outdoors.

“Mahi tacos are very very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

This is a great stop for cheap quality Mexican style food! Not traditional Mexican but has a fun Hawaii theme and great salsa too. Staff was friendly and food was ready super quick. Worth the stop for sure!

“order the grilled mahi mahi tacos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

A friend told me about this place. He said, "Just order the grilled mahi mahi tacos and you can't go wrong." And he was right.

Every time I come here, I order the grilled mahi mahi tacos, each of which consists of chunks of fish served with an aioli sauce, pico de gallo, cabbage, and lime juice on two fresh corn tortillas. And they are consistently delicious. The veggies are fresh and plentiful. The mahi mahi tastes fresh. The tortillas are fresh. The sauce is terrific.

Last time we went, which was at the end of December 2011, two tacos filled me up. My son took three tacos.

The side salsas here are nice, but the tacos don't need them. If you must have salsa, I recommend the green sauce and the mild red sauce.

Five tacos, including tax, cost $24. For a tasty, nutritious, and filling meal for two in Carmel, that's a great deal. Service is always friendly and relatively quick. Atmosphere is tropical surfer, colorful and pleasant.
