In this restaurant, you order at the counter and find a table yourself. We were lucky to find a table, but it might be frustrating for some if it is busy. And it was pretty busy and loud, but that is probably because the food is so good and it is a great place to go with kids.

Aqui is located just a few minutes from our home. The owners take pride in their service. The menu has wonderful choices and tastes fresh and prepared exactly as you ordered. We use the take out alot. Aqui is high quality, clean, friendly staff and a great place to enjoy a meal. I would recommend Aqui to anyone. The prices are reasonable and the environment is unique

We discovered the first Aqui some 10+ years ago in Willow Glen. However, now that it is closer to our place, we frequent it more often. The food has the creativity of a high-end fusion restaurant, authentic flavors from mexican, spanish, indian, american, french and other cuisines are blended together in harmony. Their 'specials' are almost always unique everytime I visit! Desserts are to die for :-)

Mexican food raised to an art form. Interesting menu with great presentation. Very fresh and nicely informal ambiance.
