“blah”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

tacos had no taste, strawberry margarita was also pretty tasteless, the chips and salsa were the only good thing about this place. And it was overpriced.

“Rename to La Hurlita”

Terrible food...bottled margaritas and old-tasting guacamole. Very disappointing for a lovely location

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Nice views. The staff was very friendly and the food was good. We had fish tacos and we liked that they were not fried.

“Over priced marginal quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Food and service were fair. Dark drab depressing setting. Food lack flavor and was $$. There are not many choices in San Simeon to dine so I think they all increase their prices because they can.

“Better than I expected!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Chips & salsa were good, mildly spicy, as was the food. We had chicken fajitas, cheese enchilada and shredded beef taco, all with rice and beans. The beans were the low point (average), and everything else, including the service, was the high point (very good). I'd definitely go back.
