I ate here 3 times in 3 weeks. It is a little pricier than other places in Rinconada, but the food and service were very good. Varied menu, Mexican, steak, fresh fish & shrimp.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you were not satisfied with our food. We always buy high quality ingredients. If we bought for example frozen Tilapia for sure we could offer much lower prices but this is not what we want to sell.

Excellent food. Simple menu. Fresh ingredients. Good for breakfasts. Clean. Owner Helmut friendly. Take care with the margueritas, one of the best in town; can leave you legless before you know it
