The fish tacos were perfect and the guacamole and hot sauce were wonderful too. And the service was spot on including reccos.

Ordered the fajitas and a steak. Food was ok, nothing special. Service was attentive without being slow or too in your face. 2 beers and a tequila promo for 80 pesos good value. Street entertainers left a little to be desired, but not the restaurants...More

Very expensive for what they offer. The tacos place next to them offer by FAR better quality than them, also a fraction of the price. Watch out!!! You have been told.
