Overlooking the Pacific Ocean at the tip of the Santa Monica Pier. Good Mexican Food, good service, reasonably priced and strolling Mariachis to sing happy birthday to boot!

After a three mile walk from Santa Monica Pier to Venice Beach and back we were very ready to sit down and eat. We thoroughly enjoyed a meal of freshly made guacamole and chips followed by chicken mole with black beans and rice for my daughter and Carousel Enchilada chicken with green salsa and crème for me. Very comfortable, casual restaurant at the very end of the pier.

Not a bad place and the location was excellent,
The food was fairly good but the pricing was not.
Nachos were very good and the tacos were great, im not a fan of so much cilantro but hey, when in rome..
The view is awsome from outside and the atmosphere was very pleasant.
but the down side was the price,

The location, at the end of Santa Monica Pier, is nice, but the prices are high. We went for lunch. My wife had a watermelon margarita that was $12 and was in a glass barely larger than a low-ball. My Piña Colada was twice as big for the same price. We had the nachos, which were acceptable, and the enchiladas Santa Monica. That was good, but again on the expensive side.

We had lunch here. The carnitis meat on the tacos were dry. The refried beans on my plate looked like it had been sitting under the heating lamp for too long (dry and cracked). The waitress never refilled our ice tea. The meal was not worth the price we paid.
