Came here based on reviews and I wasn't disappointed. The chicken fajitas were so tasty and they give you more tortillas if you run out. Sour cream doesn't come as standard but you only have to ask. Very relaxing with views of the sea. Would definitely recommend.

Great seafront Restaurant serving the finest Mexican food. Something for everyone here with an abundance or stakes and burgers right up some of the finest fresh Mexican food you will ever taste. For those who enjoy a tipple there's a vast array of cocktails to be had and warmed Tequila for afters. All in all fantastic.

Excellent Mexican, great decor and atmosphere. Friendly staff. Food was great, particularly the jalapeño cheddar poppers and the quesadilla. Mains were very good, good size partitions and will satisfy the biggest of hungers! Definitely recommend it!

Visited late on at night around 930, the waiter wouldn't let us choose where we wanted to sit which was outside until I said we would go elsewhere if that was the case. Given there were other folk sat outside I couldn't personally see the problem. My food was pretty bland however my partners looked really nice and he seemed... More

Second time to Portugal and I just had to go back to this place!!!! The food it's lovely. Fab service. We had asked for fries, didn't get them but it was fine as we were full after our enchiladas and fajitas. Beer and sangria made the meal!!!!

We were recommended to eat here by someone from the area and were really impressed! The staff were all so welcoming and accommodating to everything — even coming back and checking if we would like to have our starter altered to be less spicy keeping in mind that we had a small child in the party. The food itself was... More

I visited this place in late April 2017, and after asking about methods of cooking. "I am severely allergic to shell fish", was assured this would not be a problem, neither was it a problem to be moved upstairs after we had ordered because it was a bit chilly, didn't expect a personal waiter, the steak on the hot stone...

We wanted a Mexican and this being one of the better rated ones in the Old Town we gave it a try and we were not disappointed! We shared nachos to start and they were delicious, a good size portion and one was enough for the 2 of us. Staff were great with our toddler to! Always making sure she... More
