This is the best Mexican food I have had in years! The servings were so big that we each had takeout and a second meal from it too. The cocktails were the best on the island, by far. Amazing taste and HUGE for just a little more than the waterfront pmaces charge for small cocktails. I would not go anywhere... More

We had a good dinner here and found a pretty full menu of tasty looking dishes to try. Margaritas and mojitos are good, and of course, beers and wines are available. Nice seating and service.

This place has the best hot sauce I've ever had. I wish I could buy it. The breakfasts are good, too. The breakfast burrito was so good my boyfriend kept talking about it for a day and a half after we ate there.

During our cruise to Catalina we decided to stop here and have a bite to eat. Service My grandma who passed away moves faster. It took forever to order our food and felt like forever to get it. Thank god we stopped by with plenty of time before the boat left. Staff Personality is not part of the package here.... More

Had a great Chilly Relleno and a massive Long Island Iced Tea. Chips and salsa were good. Rice and beans good too.

We have been to Catalina Island numerous times. Too many to count. This was our first time at this restaurant. Hard to believe since there are not a lot of choices. The margaritas are 18oz and the glass they come in weighs about 2lbs! Well maybe less, but they are heavy. We had them on the rocks as suggested by... More

Not bad Mexican food and good service. They serve their signature Cazuela drink (similar to sangria) in a large ceramic bowl with a straw.
