We dropped by when we were in the area looking for a place to eat. Wouldn't say it's the best Mexican food around, but it's tasty enough and the atmosphere is quite nice.

It is difficult to find a consistently good restaurant in Ottawa, but luckily this venue is an exception. The food is always good with decent portions. Great drink menu, and very friendly staff. Would highly recommend

I have been going to this restaurant for over ten years now the food is always hot and the portions always generous . The Fajitas and Chimichangas are the best in the city in my opinion .
