Excellent Mexican food in a lush, tropical environment. Been there twice now, and each time the meal was delicious and service was friendly. I can understand why they've been in business for so long...yum.

Its unfortunate this place is so highly rated (likely because its right off the strip and littered with cruise people and ferry takers). The food was mediocre at best, service was awful, and its was very expensive compared to MUCH better restaurants elsewhere on the...More
