I went here expecting just average Mexican food, but it was not even that good. I will say the carnitas meat was good but everything else was pretty bad. From the weird mix of stale flat tortilla chips and too-puffy fresh chips to the marinara sauce salsa, it was like a parallel universe of Mexican food. The margaritas are made... More

Family and I where heading home from the beach and passed this place. Wife said she wonders if they had good salsa and chips. So after deciding that we would go with the expectation of being let down but still hopeful we gave it a try. I will say this we went there with low expectations in hopes it could... More

VERY tasty. Great carnitas, wonderful tortillas, awesome enchiladas, crunchy tacos. They've got everything you could ask for and it's all at a reasonable price.

Poor service, flat out gross fiord, not sure how this place is still in business. Mike's TexMex or Chili's are a much better bet than here. Dos Manos near gate 2 street has most authentic Mexican food.

I think most other people who have had "true" Mexican food would agree that Obbligato's is not quite that.....true Mexican food. We have been here 2 times and both myself and wife said we probably wouldn't come back as we have found some other restaurants recently that serve excellent Mexican food on the Island. I think for me the rice... More

Even though this place has a clean atmosphere it just didn't meet up with the mexican food criteria. No beans. The mexican rice was steamed with mixed veggies thrown in and everything seemed to have a soggy appearance etc, etc,. Was not impressed in the least and was glad when it was time to go - phew!

That being said, many others love this place. I just find it to be a not-so-good version of a Mexican restaurant.

One of the only mexican type resteraunts on the island. Good food and service but not completely authentic mexican. Their refried beans are not quite the same as in southern arizona. About as good as it gets for mexican food in japan.

It's pretty good for being in Japan. They use old family recipes and make their own tortillas.
