We did not take the tour but, the food was incredible!! We went back twice during our week stay. The wait staff was entertaining and made our night. The table side guacamole was to die for!! We will be back in May 2017!!

After dinner, our server brought us a sample of a 100 year old tequila that they don't even sell, but was also kind enough to have management... More

Had dinner as a family, husband and boys ages 14 and 11. Service was prompt and food was good. The mariachis were a nice touch. My husband really liked the food but my kids not as much.
