Avoid, don't bother rip off. Lots of other better places to eat. Rip off Hawaii. Food not Mexican, bland and tasteless. Waitress rude and arrogant.

We were told by some Irish tourists that this restaurant was awesome, and just being across the road from the Hyatt Regency where we were staying we thought we'd try it. It looks good from the outside, but don't let appearances fool you. We are...More

Waste of time and money. They took away 2 full plates of food and did not even ask if it was good. Are you kidding me? Sucked does not even begin to state the situation. Move on nothing to see here.

If you've ever been to a bar in Tijuana Mexico, this place is just like that. Ambiance was Mexican style, but way over done. So many decorations it will make you dizzy. But that's the good part. The food, awful! I've had better snack bar...More

Slim pickings in the tourist trap area for good quality food. We choose here as it looked fun. Food was average and overpriced. Toilets were horrid. I have to say the service was friendly and helpful and can't be faulted. Food needs to improve.
