“Fast friendly service”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

The staff were the greatest and service was immediate but the good was just OK. It is close to the Hyatt where we stayed so we gave it a try.

“Food Not Good, Service Questionable Watch out for Extra Service Charge”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We went in for drinks and nibbles and the waiter kept hassling us to get a meal even though we were drinking ( and spending) plenty and behaving impeccably. On the last occasion he gave us our drinks with a stern "I'll be back to talk food' and we felt obliged to order. My husband had a salmon dish which he said tasted odd, and vomited that night. I had the tortilla salad which was tasteless. When the bill came, we did not realise until afterwards but they rather sneakily automatically added 15% service charge on whether you like it or not. As we were used to adding our own 15% in Honolulu, the terrible waiter ended up with a 30% tip. We visit Honolulu every year and have drank at this bar many times but will not be back to La Cuceracha next time.

“Who would have known?!?!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

We have lived on Oahu for years, and never knew such a place existed in Waikiki! We enjoy authentic Mexican food, and this place offers a tropical twist on Mexican, while maintaining the qualities of the original! The salsa rocks, as do the margaritas! The service here is top notch!
