“For all fish taco, cilantro loving, anti-tourists.”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

This place does not buy into the local tourist flash and give-me-your-cash flavor. Loved the grouper fish taco! The crabcake with salad and mango-cilantro salsa dressing was a close second. Cilantro use was heavy and delicious in the salsa verde and almost everything else. Good service. Daily specials. Buy one get one bottled beer Saturdays!

“Unsurpassed Mexican Food”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

The best Mexican restaurant in Destin and FWB. This is the closest thing I have found, besides being in Mexico, to authentic Mexican. I am a typical gringo and base all Mexican restaurants on how they make their fajitas. Anyone can make a taco, but it takes skill to make fajitas that are seasoned perfectly. Good spices that won't let you down. Skip the ones in FWB and head for Destin. We do.

“Excellent Value”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

One of the better Mexican restaurants in Destin. Large selection on the menu. Waiter was good and explained everything very well. The amount of food for the money is excellent. All the dishes my family and I ordered were seasoned well and tasted great. Many locals eat there which says a lot.

“Good food but pricey.”
Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Being used to going to Mexican (cause I love it so much), the food here was definitely over priced. Even just a bowl of queso was $7! However, the food was very tasty. So if you have a craving for Mexican, this is a good place to go!
