This traditional Mexican restaurant offers good service, wide menu selection, good food, reasonable prices .... and parking, sometimes a luxury in La Jolla.

Quite possibly the worst restaurant experience of my life. Took 2 hours and 45 minutes to finish this meal. Salad....crap. Steak... Mediocre. Desert....barely edible.

The environment here is attractive. The adobe/estancia style reflects a mellow luxury that resists the over-the-top style of the other nearby resorts. The restaurant, however, is only so-so. I go here frequently because of its convenience, but not for the food. The food is merely adequate, and occasionally disappointing. The service is spotty. The staff is consistently friendly, but seem to have taken the 'do not be obtrusive' policy to an extreme. Count on having to catch your server's eye, and be prepared for slow service.

Breakfast has some really good dishes, like the blue corn pancakes. Be prepared to wait 45 minutes for the food.
