Had a meal with my wife here on a recent trip to SD. The atmosphere is good with interesting decor. The service was attentive and timely. The salsa bar which is free was really good with a great range of fresh tasty salsas to choose from. Mojitos were nice and the Fajitas were also very tasty. A great spot in the Gaslamp Quarter.

Love the food and the service. It's loud, but you can actually have a conversation. The salsa bar is wonderfull with lots of varity and many non spicy option, try the mango. I love the Pina coladas, and the lobster crab legs in the tin bucket thingee.

The selection of salsas and dips for the chips at this place is great The food was good and plentiful but the ceviche was so so. Atmosphere is very good and the servers are attentive and efficient. The place can get a little noisy and the prices are not low.

We had a great meal and service here for our last bit of food in San Diego. The staff were very friendly and looked after us while we were there. The food was also delicious. It was much quieter then the other days in San Diego but I would recommend a visit here. They have a happy hour for both food and drinks at lunch time. Great place!

Second trip to this Old Town spot, good food, cold beer, good service. Parking available or better yet, take the trolley/train, a couple of block walk from the Old Town station, really short trip from/to downtown area.
