Live here and in LA all my life. Tecate is not the best town for restaurants and after a visit to Amores which was pleasant and was hoping better here since it is rated higher. But what followed was a meal very disappointing. Walked in front door and nobody to welcome us. Was seated and was fairly empty. Young waitress... More

We were four people and took us almost 3 hrs from arrival to departure. The taste of the food is great, the variety of dishes and combination of flavors is amazing. But you can't visit this place if you are in a rush o with limited time. The staff is very young and inexpert, barely knows the dishes and the... More

Arrived with my travel group of 16 people without notice and they were about to accommodate us. We had a wide variety of food from tacos and pizzas to salmon. Everything was plated nicely and tasted great.... More

We left RLP due to Trip Advisor high ratings. Did not live up to expectations. Waiter was pleasant, bartender clueless, menu odd. Our meal was a meat mixed platter, tasted a bit like leftovers from the day. Zero condiments or sides. Hot sauce, beans, Pico de Gallo, limes, nada. Wouldn't leave the property for this meal again.

This really hit the spot. It is a gourmet, Italian / Mexican fusion restaurant. We especially loved the lamb on toasted corn tortillas and the warm salad. I ordered a ginger mojita and it was very good. The prices are very reasonable considering the current exchange rate of 19 to 1. I would highly recommend.

I went to this restaurant over the weekend. The service was ok, the food was slow in coming and cold. You can't have warm meat, cold chicken or shrimp. This place was not busy, so it was not an overworked staff.
