Came here for a work lunch as work nearby and had never eaten at this restaurant. It looks small from the outside, but once entering, we were quickly shown by the hostess upstairs, where it is decorated as if you area actually in Mexico, and...More

The place has lot of stairs, so if you have mobility problems do not come here. The AC upstairs do not provides enough cooling, the food in general times is nothing extraordinary and the fish is of poor quality. Service is very friendly
