We always get their margraitas on the rocks. Our friends got the mango margarita and loved them. My husband ordered their "Mexican Platter", he said it was the best in town! They did an awesome flaming banana dessert.

Had a nice dinner, reasonably priced. Great service. Mexican seafood cuisine - tasty in a hotel restaurant. Up the street from the Cathedral de Guadelupe.

An iconic local establishment that serves a good meal and offers great sunsets from it's rooftop terrace. There were many ex-pats that have been frequenting this venue for years. A nice quiet dining choice with excellent Mole and the Mexicano Plato was huge!!
