Visited this place after seeing good reviews on the site. Very good place, deliciously prepared, good staff, ate nachos there meat and drank different drinks, even for the action they give free drinks or shots, in general I advise! Best Mexican Restaurant in Istanbul!

We spent couple of hours there for dinner time. The food and taste was great, the price was a little high. I really liked the decoration

It's nice, for Istanbul. The margarita was good, but the pitcher to pour it into the cups just kept spilling all over the table
