Don't bring a date here expecting to impress her. This is down home yummy mexican food where the locals eat. Just about any other Mexican restaurant on the Island is fancier, but few are better. This is a great breakfast place - it's like a scene out of a movie. Rich in color and people, sometime a little noisy, always excellent. I love this joint.

Wanted to be able to walk to some good Mexican food, since we had already paid for parking on the Strand and El Jardin was recommended. We were not disappointed in the food, the Carne Guisada was really good, and the salsa although a bit thin had a wonderful taste. My only complaint was that the kitchen closed at 2pm and we felt a bit rushed. I am unsure if they have a dinner service here or not.

We eat breakfast here about once a month. Food and service is good but I do not think I would call either excellent.
