Food and service was very good. All dishes were enjoyed at this restaurant. We ate here twice. A fun Mexican experience. The mariachi band was an interesting addition to dinner.

We ate here the first night we were in Cancun and the cuisine was more upscale Mexican food. I had the shrimp and it was delicious. The sirloin was good, too. My husband and the other men had that dish.
