Indifferent and inattentive service, forgotten items in our order (that consisted of three items), and pretty poor food (how hard can it be to make a decent taco?). Nice view from the veranda, but otherwise a loser all the way around.

This is your basic Mexican restaurant. We were there mid-week and there were not a lot of people eating. The service and food are just OK. For a cheap night out and so-so Mexican food, this is your place.

Great selection of Mexican breakfasts. I was one of the only people here so the food came out very quickly. I’m surprised this place isn’t more popular considering the prices are so much cheaper than the resort across the street. Plus the food is actually...More
