Interesting, but not overwhelming, menu for lunch. Even if you're not a fan of Mexican food, there are plenty of choices available. Food is good, servers are very friendly, outside dining is available (on the sidewalk, but it can be pleasant). I'd like to go back and try the dinner menu.

We decided to go over for a late dinner, it is a tapas place, the feeling was that they tried too hrs to reinvent the tapas so for example the Patatas Bravas instead of a plate full with Patatas you get only 5 presented nicely but hardly what you expect Worthwhile to mention that the kitchen closes at 11pm It...

Decent food but seems a bit over priced for what you get and the inside seems like it could use an update

The decor is nice and the menu items are a combination of traditional and creative. Our waiter, David, was terrific and he made guacamole at our table. Everyone in my party thoroughly enjoyed their meals and the ambiance. The tapas allowed me to sample several tasty options. However, my companion's jalapeño rellano was the star of the night.

It was recommended we go to Wayne because they had many restaurants and it was a short distance from where we were staying in King of Prussia. We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and made a reservation. It looked nice on the outside although when you looked inside it was a bit dark and all you could really see was... More

Stopped by for lunch and had an excellent experience. The ceviche was best I've had outside of Cancun, the tapas were very flavorful (wish I ordered more) Very friendly service and a well made mojito from the bar made my afternoon

We had a fun time with a great vibe sitting outside. Unfortunately the service was sub-par. We ordered our food and drinks. we were done our drink before the food came (not so Bad) but didn't get another drink until we were done half our food. They forgot our table-side Guacamole, and it came out last, not much need to... More

The Wayne business district held a festival on Sat. June 11. It was a small but nice event on a very hot day. Several of the restaurants were selling outdoor food and drinks for the crowd. Matador had a sign offering Margaritas so I decided to buy one to share with my wife. What a mistake ! Absolutely the worst... More
