The food here is out of this world delicious! Each dish is made with fresh quality ingredients and the portion sizes are perfect. All items on the menu can be made vegan and there is no sacrifice of flavour. I frequently return and always look forward to when I will go next. Keep up the good work!

Having an aversion to both cilantro and spicy food, I was given a good choice for lunch recently. My lunch companion likes spicy food, so the addition of a home-made sauce, it was a pleasant meal. The server was friendly, helpful, and attentive. The food presentation was very nice, portions generous, price fair, BUT, overall, the taste of the items... More

Vengo aqui para la comida deliciosa ! The food is excellent and the service is too. The special of the day is always good and very reasonably priced. Pair that with a couple of Palomas and you're set.

Ivan's roots come from Mexico where he grew up, and he has a great desire to make good tasting food with a flair. The place is a uniquely family owned, with Mom sometimes helping serve. The... More

A hidden gem in Salmon Arm..Authentic fare with reasonable prices and if your lucky the owner will serenade you. The Chimichangas are amazing here and the portions are large..well worth a visit. Salmon Arm has a few awesome restaurants, and this is one of them

Had dinner after a movie, the food and the service was very good, no complaints at all. The restaurant is quite small and as such it is quite noisy however we enjoyed our evening and will go back.

Lovely little Mexican joint with bright Mexican tablecloths and tables close to the window. Our server was friendly and charming. I will definitely come here again. The food was delicious; I look forward to trying other dishes.

Ignored our request for extra sour cream and guacamole. Beef tacos were bland and the corn soft taco shells do not taste good at all. We liked the chicken burrito but would have requested a regular flour tortilla if we had known it came whole wheat.
