Food is always above par and at a reasonable price served by friendly and good looking staff... Went in for a quick bite to hold us over till dinner, Anna met us, showed us to a table of our choice and treated us like we were the only customer she'd ever had...

Fun place, they try the best but drinks and food are no good, no flavor. For the price would really expect something better. Drinks too sweet. We ate hamburgers- was ok but nothing special. Oysters are not recommended- test less

The restaurant is located in La Isla Mall. There is lively music and a varied menu (Mexican, American, seafood, beef, chicken, vegetarian, etc.) . We always enjoy the atmosphere and the food. The drinks are great. It is fun and always good. The waiters are attentive

Just when the sun was going down, swarms of mosquitos came in to this open air Rest. This was nothing new, the staff did bring a can of spray-on repellant "after we requested help". Tortia Soup was tasteless, Guacamole was bland and watery,Hamburger was like thick folder cardboard, chicken fahitas were bland.........Drinks were the only saving grace. Stay away.

It's always fun to go to Carlos and Charlies when you want to mingle with crazy people. It was good bar food, good drinks and fun people, usually Americans, Canadians and others who don't want to venture out to something really different.

Waiters were non-English speaking and made no effort to meet us half-way in terms of language. Food was not that great--very expensive and not on par for value with other similar restaurants.

We went exploring in the early afternoon. The restaurtant was empty because most people come here for evening when it is cooler and more happening at the La Isla mall. The food was very good especially the tortilla soup.

The spare ribs, although well cooked were covered with an awfull sauce that was uneatable. The music was too loud, the waiters did not know their wines, etc.etc.etc. so don't go unless you are a dead fan of junk food.

First time there. Wasn't impressed. Food was okay. Had a group of 8. We were downtown and wouldn't make the drive for what we got.
