We sat outside which was nice, had a beer, some chips and salsa, and then I had the Baja tacos (fish tacos). Overall, we had a good dining experience and the food was fine; typical Mexican restaurant. If you want Mexican food while in Key West, this would be a fine choice.

I was not overly impressed with this Mexican food. The chips were warm which was great! The salsa was very oniony. The fish tacos were very good! My son got the chicken and cheese quesadilla and it had too much cheese on it, and he likes cheese.

I had fish tacos with a nice twist. Fresh spinach, tomato, grilled mahi mahi with a Chipotle cream sauce. Enjoyed it and the chips and salsa. Sat at a streetside outdoor table. Reasonable prices.
