If you want tex-mex this is not the place for you. The food is does offer is well prepared and very good. I enjoyed the cheese enchiladas which were light and moist. My wife loved her fish tacos. The cactus fries are different and definitely worth a try. The service that others rave bout was quixotic at best. Food arrived reasonable quickly but it took ages to get a drink from the bar. The biggest drawback for us was the noise level which was boisterous to say the least and made conversation nearly impossible.

We tried Ama Cocina for a late lunch and it was great! We had the burrito wraps, burrito with salad and rice in a bowl and enchiladas. All were very tasty and delicious, washed down with beer. The place's décor is striking in a Frida Kahlo colourful way. Great place for mexican food!

My meal was specified as a salad special. It was tasty, but a little to spicy for me. I am still a little hungry too. The salsa appetizer wasn't my favorite either. I don't eat sweets, so that's probably why I'm still hungry. The rest of the family seemed happy with their meals. The waiter was excellent.

My husband, sons and I went to dinner here. Everybody liked what they got - one son gots the meat lover's tacos and fish tacos; the other got the steak fajitas; my husband got the chicken enchiladas and I got the cheese enchiladas. The dinners were very good and we would all get what we got again without a problem. The salsa and the guacamole were good. My husband and I got Margaritas and they were not great - sour without the sweetness aspeck you expect (Triple Sec? - not sure); my husband and I didn't care for the chips either which were pretty greasy - but our sons did like them.

I called ahead and they had plenty of open tables. When I arrive 20 minutes later they still had lots of open tables but no ability to seat because of potential reservations later. So much for quality management
