We were staying in Kauai for the weekend and while driving around exploring the island in our rental car, we heard an ad on the radio for this restaurant so we decided to go. My family is from Oaxaca Mexico and I was thrilled to hear the cooks were from there as well. Our server was from Sonora Mexico and other staff members were from Mexico City, Rosarito, and other places in Mexico. Being Mexican I asked what they recommended for our authentic taste. They offered me the chicken mole from Oaxaca and they offered my boyfriend enchiladas, especially made for him (spicy). They had dos XX on tap. Awesome time, fantastic food, authentic to the core, would love to go back to Kauai for this restaurant. I highly recommend it!!

Nice view, outside dining, adjacent to a small shopping area. Very good prices for the area. Of our four meals, the carnitas ($19) were the best. Chile Verdi ($17) was so-so, refried beans did not look homemade. Excellent beer prices ($4 for Coors, $7.50 for 24 oz Modela). Service was adequate. Total lunch bill was $95 (4 entrees, 4 drinks, no appetizers). Overall a decent place and worthy of a return trip.

Wow were we surprised to find such good Mexican food in Kauai. We travel the world and this is actually one of our best finds. The servers were very nice and friendly and constantly checked to see if everything was ok. The warm chips, homemade salsa and guacamole were perfect. The beers were super cold and dinner awesome. Also, the price was very good, especially for Kauai!
