This Mexican place does not serve better Mexican food than I could do at home. Lack of flavor to the food and a waiter that did not remember any of our orders.

Service was great & food was 'really tasty', as quoted by a couple of very picky teenage boys. Meals reasonably priced drinks a little expensive. Overall, glad we stopped in for a family meal.

Very disappointing visit. Tasteless pricy food. We ordered an appetizer nacho tray for $18.00 that consisted for a few chips, a scoop of sour cream, guacamole, beans and that was pretty much it .... on a plate less than the size of a regular dinner plate. I couldn't taste the alcohol in my $10.00 Pina Colada. The final star was... More

Worst food we had in Honolulu. Its a shame because we were really looking forward to having good Mexican food.. but that was far from what we got. We actually had to send back our mains as the chicken smelt like it was off and it was just horrible!

We ate here and found the food expensive and pretty tasteless. $21 dollars for a boiled chicken burrito and stale chips.

We visited this mexican restaurant looking for a hot chicken soup.... the soup was so watery... no taste. We asked for an order of corn tortillas... the waiter did not know if we wanted tacos.... our dinner extremely expensive.... not worth it!

After 3 days of appalling and expensive meals in Waikiki we thought we couldn't go wrong with basic Mexican food...pretty hard to mess up good Mexican cuisine you'd think....and you'd be totally off the mark. The chicken on the fajitas looked like fish it was so anaemic and floating in oil along with raw onions and capsicums. It would have... More

We had dinner here on Christmas Eve. Very fun, friendly place. The margaritas are great, so is the view and our server was super friendly and accommodating. Thanks for a great meal!

We had left downtown to our resort and got stuck in traffic, decided to return downtown and find a place to relax until the traffic subsided. We had the greatest time and was entertained by our server....Stan the Man. We did not eat, but the chips, chili salsa and drinks were fabulous with the entertainment. We took pictures as we...
