Great food, ambiance and service! We were here around 10 years ago and discovered the restaurant by chance. We were quite impressed and wanted to come back ever since. The cook and quality did not change!

You need to try the frozen margaritas and nachos as starter! It's not culinarian food but it's honest, authentic food. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Your first impression when you enter the restaurant is not amazing but the food makes it right.

We visited this restaurant with a couple of friends; we arrive late even though they gave us a seat and as per chef's comments they had run out of some of the ingredientes to complete our order, anyhow we invite him to improvise and each...More
The food is amazing, the staff is helpful and friendly. Decor is cheerful, and while there's not much space between the tables, the food makes up for it by miles. Fair chance they're full if you try to walk in on the weekend, so try...More
The restaurant is characterized by Mexican colorful design. The staff, who doesn't speak proper English, and the music create a cosy Latin atmosphere. Unfortunately these are the only details that I could appreciate. The food was clearly low quality and far from the Mexican tradition,...More
