    Excellent and real Mexican food. Service is amazing. As an improvement, I would put more Mexican songs instead of salsa music.

    We took our 11 years old son for dinner as his first time in a Mexican restaurant and he absolutely loved it. The service was really nice. He had the Mexican discovery dish. A selection of enchiladas and was super nice. The staff let us had photos with Mexican hats and face mask front lucha Libre. Great fun, nice food and decent price.

    Good food, but expensive considering many dishes are quite basic. Drinks also slightly overpriced.

    The restaurant was very nice with a warm welcome and the food good, although not impressive. The main reason for our low rating is due to the service and the long waiting (3 hours to complete a meal); however, it since we were not pressed with time we still enjoyed our evening.

    Guacamole & cocktails were really excellent. Main dish lacked a bit of seasoning and spices, and thus of taste. Very very welcoming waiters!
