Real Mexican food and good atmosphere in this restaurant. Big space, comfortable and good service. A big, but not exaggerated, variety of dishes and drinks, fresh and tasty.

A unique take on Mexican food. They arent afraid to add spice or flavor like many places. The interior is decorated in bright colors and seemed initially a bit weird, but, strangely, it kinda matched the unique food and in the end seemed perfectly fitting!...More

Have been here twice, both times with work friends....it's light and fun. The Happy Hour drinks and food are great. And for dinner, I recommend the steak...it was the best I've had in a long time.

Pricey for DTLA Mexican food but amazingly good. We had chili rellano and enchiladas but everything looked fantastic.

Loved the food, nice Mexican fare, with a twist. Our group ordered everything from vegetarian dishes to fish, beef, etc and deserts. Everything was very good, including their take on the Marguerita (loved the black salt rim!).

Great Mexican spot in the Arts District not too far from downtown. Guac was fresh and amazing. Molè was muy authentico! Our party had a great time, and especially enjoyed the blood orange margaritas. We'll be back.
