Our waiter was José Luis. He was very attentive and helpful. We had coconut shrimp, grilled flounder, and flounder au grautin. All were delicious and came with soup or salad, veggies, and wonderful rice. Dessert was delicious flan with cherry essence. Leisurely meal.

Seafood options mostly, all very fresh. Not a lot of classic Mexican but they make fresh guacamole that's delicious and offer rice and beans. The menu is more upscale type dishes but good portions and really good.
