We were wandering downtown and stumbled upon this place. Luis was our server who was fantastic and let us try different hot sauces with our chips. Service prices and drink/ food very reasonable

The Ceviche and Margarita were exactly I was looking for in the hot afternoon. The view was breathtaking. But the best and the difference was the costumer attention by Vanessa, Omar and the other guy(sorry I don't remember the name), Thank you. The cubans.

In VIVA MEXICO Snackbar we go beyond tacos and "sombreros". We have a mouth-watering menu of appetizers, salads, burgers, quesadillas, guacamole and more... Our drinks are quite remarkable as well, our bar offers the traditional Margaritas, Mojitos, Daiquiris, Cocktails, Beers and pretty much anything you can drink... now, when it comes to dancing, we know just what you need with our ROCKIN FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS accompanied by The Red Eye Band and our SUNDAYS flavored by the versatile BAND "DEJAVU"... so Viva Mexico!!
