A very fun place that had great live Flemenco! All classic Mexican food available and they had good chips and salsa. The margheritas were good too.

We found this restaurant after seeing it advertised as Sedona nest Mexican. Unsure about that claim but it is a nice quaint restaurant with both indoor and outdoor dining. We were not rushed and had a nice meal.

Authentic Mexican food with a great outdoor entertainment area. We went our first night in Sedona and there was live Spanish music. Super fun. Bar outside. An hour wait but it was a Sunday night.
