The food here was outstanding and as close to authentic as we have found outside Mexico. The only reason they dont get the EXCELLENT rating is because their drink menu was lacking. We both had Margaritas, which were ok, but nothing more. Servers were very knowledgeable and friendly, we saw the woman who owned the place (recognized from picture in news article at front desk) and she was running around obviously very involved in every aspect of the place.

If this restaurant could get the Margarita Recipes from Dos Locos down the street, we would have a new favorite restaurant.

one of the few places we have to hit when we visit rehoboth--we're repeat customers for life. good flavor and quality. Our server was a little odd last time, but the food and atmosphere more than makes up for it. The back room seating is great!

We have tried several nice restaurants in Rehoboth, but wanted to try something new our first night at the beach. Since we love mexican food we decided to try this place. We were warmly welcomed by Gladys, the owner, and we couldnt help but appreciate the colorful and inviting decor. We started with a margarita and an appetizer of ceviche. Both were excellent. The ceviche was large enough for 2 although was so good I didnt want to share. The drink was refreshing and perfectly mixed for my taste. My husband ordered a chorizo dish and mine was the chicken burrito. The burrito had great flavor and we were both very happy with our meals. We will definitely return, and next time weather permitting we want to sit in the beautiful courtyard out back.

Very unusual to get food like I'm used to from Mexico City! They had many of my favorites including Oaxacan Cheese with Chorizo and Poblano Peppers as a fondue, Corn on the Cob that brought back memories of floating down the river in Xochimilco! Tacos al Pastor and other great choices! If you're thinking fajitas and chimichangas then you should go to Chili's!

Visited Cilantro recently on my trip to Rehoboth. The food was some of the best we had all trip and is as authentic as you can get with all homemade preparations. The staff were very friendly and accommodating for the most part. The restaurant was very clean and presentable on the main strip within a block of the beach. The only bad part of our visit was when the check came, didn't like the fact that we were charged happy hour prices for some items and not for others. Out front their signs were misleading with one stating happy hour 4-7 and the other daily special board stating happy hour was all day right as you entered. I didn't complain, but don't like the fact that I felt taken advantage of. I definitely suggest to try this place out...just make sure if you have any questions on what prices are, verify before ordering.
