The salsa was incredible. We are a family of 5 went through 3 bowls... Mango salsa that come with the shrip was amazing as well. Didnt try the dessert but the corn ice cream looked amazing. Our server was extreemly nice too.

Five of us ate here on the recommendation of our driver after going to the Art Walk. The food was okay, though our waiter was attentive. I'd probably try someplace else next time I'm there though.

Our group of seven had a delicious meal at el herradero. The food came hot and well presented. The margarita grande was delicious although quite expensive for mexico 250 pesos.
