We had absolutely wonderful food. I had delicious halibut over quinoa. The filet over an Oaxaca cheese enchilada was fabulous. Fresh guacamole made at our table was wonderful.

We were looking for authentic Mexian food and were not disappointed. The gaucamole dip was to die for; the margaritas perfect; and the food delicious. The ambiance of the dining area and the service made for a perfect evening to enjoy food, drink, and family.

Good food in the beautiful Princess resort. The margarita selection is diverse, fresh and very good. The chips and guac were the star - tableside and abundant. The entrees were good but not best ever. Pricey - five people was nearly $400. Tip - if...More
