Divine little Mexican spot! The taco bowls are delish but their churro's - absolutely decandent, we always opt for the churros filled, divine. You won't be disappointed. The only reason they don't get a 5 is their soft taco shells need some work. They crumble quite easily and often they're over stuffed so they are difficult to eat. Perhaps the chef should look at making them bigger and reduce the quantity served or relook the receipe. We're waiting for them to introduce hard shell tacos - pretty please guys :)

The menu included taco's which always makes me happy. We had three different kinds and some apps that were all very good. Being a new restaurant, they do not have their liquor license yet, so we could bring our own wine which suited us fine. The service was very nice. It is situated in a group of small cute places on Regent Road.

Seldom does one come across a Latin American restaurant that offers healthy and delicious food.
Most items are gluten free, homemade and free of chemicals.
Quinoa is a substitute for rice, the tortillas are corn and not wheat. The salads are Uber fresh.
Guilt free and easy on the digestive system.
Service - off the charts!!
Environment - fantastic

We spent a lovely few hours eating lunch here. Amazing ceviche starter, followed by freshly prepared guacamole and nachos for the table (hands down the best I've ever had) and then onto the pièce de résistance, the tacos (we had beef and pork). Every dish was superb.

I also must make mention of the wonderful lady who served us, she was knowledgeable, good humoured, and just an all round delight. They don't have an alcohol license yet, but were cool with us popping across the road to the bottle shop to pick up some beers and wine.

A welcome addition to the Latin American food offerings in Cape Town and a VERY welcome addition to Seapoint Main Rd.
The carne tacos with chimichurri sauce were delicious. The corn tortillas are home made and you can absolutely taste the difference.
Portion sizes were spot on and perfect for sharing. My only regret is that I didn't save room for the churros!
