“Smashing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

This is the kind of place you expect to be jumping at 10pm on a Friday night: young staff, out-there decor. Which is why I was so struck when they bent over backwards for me, my wife and our six-month old son. In between whipping out magharitas and beers for the surfer crowd, they made us comfortable and welcome.

A bonus: the food is incredible. There are so many 'mex-express' chain restaurants springing up that have the vibe, but just churn out limp tacos and stodgy burritos. Not here. We had the bean tacos and a grilled prawn salad, and both were damn tasty. It's the kind of food you'd be very happy getting on a nice dinner out. That it's at a buzzing lunch, drinks and nightspot is what makes this place special.

“Not authentic Mexican ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Hippy tacos. Nothing on the menu that we could recognize as real Mexican. I had tacos that had carrot in them and feta cheese. Salsa tasted like sweet spaghetti sauce. Menu says California style Mexican. Well we are from California and I saw nothing I could recognize as real Mexican. Be different. That's great. But it's cheap and easy to offer real Mexican along side for those who came in to your Mexican restaurant looking to eat Mexican food. Margarita was good. Good way too expensive for what it was.
