“Imaginative menu”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

Their imaginative menu just screamed to "TRY EVERYTHING"! A margarita mixed at the table was fun!! made with fresh lime juice and better-than-usual alcohols. 300 miles prevents us from being "regulars" but we will definitely return on our next trip to LA. Atmosphere is not elegant but pleasant enough.

“Great Mexican Cuisine”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

To just call this establishment a "Mexican Restaurant" would be an injustice. The place is a little off the beaten path and is in a mostly residential area of east Venice. It is quite a hike from the beach area and isn't much to look at from the outside. However, the food is very different from the usual Americanized Mexican fare and is delicious! My wife proclaimed the fish dish that she had one of the best ever. My tostado was large and excellent. The "house" Margaritas were to die for. Highly recommended.

“Our favorite Mexican Restaurant in the area.”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

We had a coupon from Restaurant.com and called them to ask if our dog could sit with us on the porch. They said sure - so we did. It was Great! I had a rib-eye (thin with asada spices, very tasty), and my husband had his favorite - burrito. Chips were good, as was the salsa and Margarita. Price was excellent with the coupon, but the food was so good we went back without one. Hours are a little odd - not open til 5, so no late lunch (actually I don't think they had lunch at all).

“One of the best Mexican food we have tasted”
Reviewed February 3, 2011

We had an excellent meal. The starter was very good ot was the mushroom & cheese is tortilla. There was a special that night for a grill pork loin with special mesquite sauce. It was excellent as the meat was moist and tender. Full of flavor with tinge of chocolate. The drinks were good and extensive. We had the special margarita. If you are shopping at the Venice strip, be sure to go there for a good Mexican meal.
