“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is a great place to grab a lunch or have a big dinner with friends. Parking can be a major problem on the weekend nights. Food was good but nothing mind-blowing. If you go for lunch be sure to sit out on the patio. The views of the marina are great and it's fun to see seals playing in the water while you're enjoying an enchilada and bloody mary.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Many great selections on the menu. My favorite is their Chile Verde - I always come back to this. Beer selection is mediocre, but their margaritas are outstanding!

“Good, Solid Mexican Food”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Great drinks, very good food. Busy as hell. Good service. Attentive but a little distracted/detached. Needs a better parking situation at the moment - too many places in that small collection of restaurants and stores and not enough parking in the evening. Worth the price.

“Great place to meet friends.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is an inexpencive spot with good food and a great (albeit not very spicy) salsa bar. The atmosphere is good and the staff very pleasant and accomodating.

“Oxnard Staple”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

My mom went here before I was born when it was at the centerpoint, I grew up there went every friday at least. Got to hostess for a few events, Manny and Fransico are amazing. The wait staff is awesome, and the food is the best! My favorite dish is Shrimp Diablo you have to try it! I have noticed since the switch from old oxnard to the harbor they staff is less friendly and more stuck up but they still have their old guys and if you've been to yolandas for the 20+ years i've been going you know who they are!
