Had a delicious lunch here. Half of our group had traditional Mexican food including really great enchiladas pablanos and enmoladas. The other half of our group ordered more American lunch fair and were pleasantly surprised by great grilled chicken burgers. Inexpensive for Canadians, average price for the area.

Off the main drag, one block north on a side street, Casita de Irma (it's proper name) is a gem. Good food, good service and good prices. Excellent chiles relleno and chicken with mushroom cream sauce, for example. The best flan (creme caramel) ever, too! Highly recommended.

About 2 1/2 blocks from our rental so we went last night for dinner. Busy, about 2/3 of tables full but the service was good. Food fell a tad bit short of what I was expecting but still quite good. Mucho menu items to select from. Think I'll go back for breakfast one day before we leave. Price was $165... More

I am always happy to eat at La Casita. Irma and her staff greet me with smiles and welcomes then provide excellent service. The food is delicious and they are always happy to give an explanation of a dish if it is something I have never tried before. One of my personal favourites here is the chicken burritos. Fresh ingredients,... More

So I really wanted to give 3 1/2 stars but can't seem to. We were here last year on market day and while our friends who live here said it was one of their favourites we we not impressed and not planning on coming back. But when I asked a Mexican friend where to find the best sopa de tortilla... More

The restaurant was full tonight however only one table had Mexican clients. Not always a good sign in my book. As repeated here before, the prices are really good but the food is forgettable. Only one waitress means a long wait. Took forever before she took our order. I wasn't too hungry but I was thirsty. Her read snapper was... More

This little restaurant was close to our house and served great food. Our bill was always more than reasonable and food was hot and tasty. Never had a bad meal.

Seafood seems the natural choice here, at an ocean side village …. and the seafood was delicious. We had the shrimp ceviche, fish tacos, shrimp tacos and loved them all. Then …. we noticed the owner eating the pork …. so we had to go back and have the pork in salsa verde and it was fabulous. The smoked pork... More
