Can't say enough. Love the location. Love the service. Love the food. Love the atmosphere. What more is there? Ok, so maybe this place isn't for everyone. It's loud, but a fun loud. Maybe not the best "quiet date night" place. But, if you're looking for a real Mexican meal, with outstanding margarita's, in midtown, this is the best I've found...here or anywhere else in town.

We stopped here before heading to the theatre due to its convenient location. Definitely make reservations. We had 5:30 reservations and by 6:00 the place was absolutely mobbed. Tables are fairly close together but nothing too bad. It's not like sitting with strangers. Huge selection of appetizers. Not so huge selection of entrees. We got several appetizers and shared them. Their margaritas were excellent. Very clean and nicely decorated restaurant.

We visited on a Thursday night, I'm so glad we had a reservation as they were turning people away. The tables are quite close together ant it is quite load, you don't have to shout to be heard, but you can hear snippets of your neighbours conversation. We didn't mind this at all, it was all part of the charm. The atmosphere was fantastic and the mango mojito to die for!

The food was fresh and delicious, perfectly seasoned and spiced. The guacamole alone would have satisfied me, put we pushed on with some lobster tacos - oh my word! We both had the Camarones Toloache, on the advice of our server, and it was simply delicious.

I honestly cannot recommend this place highly enough and it is top of the list for returning too, when we next visit.

Authentic Mexican food and drinks. Came here for brunch and the food was amazing. Didn't wait long for the food and the food itself has amazing spices and flavor which makes it great. The place was clean and well decorated. I'd go again... oh... and if you can... try to stomach their grasshopper tacos :)

.... I would. Lucky chance we came across this restaurant and so pleased we did. It is the best Mexican restaurant we have ever been to. Left our mouths and taste buds zinging with all the delicious flavours. Love it so much we booked for a second night. Most enjoyable meal in the five days stay in New York.
