We sat upstairs on the patio for lunch...we had a lovely breeze! The staff was very accommodating for our family group. We came to San Diego knowing we'd get authentic Mexican food and we were not disappointed. Everything was very tasty and portioned well.

Sat and had a very nice dinner on the second floor. The server was very polite and attentive. She was extremely prompt with our drinks. The nachos and tacquitos were perfect for sharing. Could hardly finish. The patio seating was comfortable and enjoyable.
