Very different, fresh, creative, every time I go the staff is very attentive so the drinks are huge made with fresh fruit. Chef Roberto created a fun and taste full menu. The patio is very pleasant with a beautiful fireplace.

So good to have Mexican that isn't completely Americanized. Their salsa had a wonderful bounty of cilantro and the chips were a rich sweet corn base, served warm and crisp. Never having been here before, we both decided to roll the dice on a Buritto made with steak, and served in a fresh Tomalito sauce. OMG...delish! It comes with beans... More

My husband and I decided to go here on our first night of vacation (Tuesday) after reading TripAdvisor.com. I've never heard of the place because it is located in the Five Pine Lodge & Conference Center area on the edge of Sisters. When we entered the restaurant the music is hopping but not a lot of customers. Well that's because... More

After a morning hike, we had a desire to have Mexican food. We stopped here because someones' ap said this was a good place to eat. We got there at 1:30 and the place was deserted. We were seated indoors. There were two young women who came in after us and were seated outdoors, but I worry about a place... More

On a Saturday at lunch there was no one there. The bartender was all alone. We came in and then a big group came in. The poor gal had to really hustle. The margaritas were not good even though they were made with fresh fruit. The guacamole was delicious and so were our entrees. The decor was strange and the... More

It was okay - not really up to our standards for Mexican food being from California. The margarita was great! The presentation was nice but both of our dishes were just okay. I did like their salsa. My husband said his chicken tasted like it had been microwaved. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful though which was nice and... More
