Great food, lots to chose from. Portions are small, but that way you can try lots of items. We had lunch for two and it was less than $20 and we were both full. Friendly staff, we'll be back!

All the food here is exceptional. The tacos are like they are in Mexico with some added flare and phenomenal salsas. Great margheritas, perfect for any day of the week. Only complaint is we live in Penticton and I wish it was closer.

Was exploring and found this cute little restaurant. Everything appears to be made from scratch. I loved the salsa and guac. My tacos were great. It was a fabulous place to take a break during sight seeing.

We enjoy real Mexican food as opposed to USA-style Mexican food. These tacos are soft corn flour tacos, with authentic Mexican toppings and condiments made in house. Centrally located in downtown Kelowna across from the library. Outdoor and indoor seating. You will see couples, business...More

Really enjoy this place. Authentic food and great drinks. Tacos are fresh and flavourful without going overboard with seasoning and spices. Literally like a tast of Mexico in our city. Small patio on a busy street but if you visit in the evening it’s nice...More

Just walking down the street and thought it looked good and funky. I had the 3 soft taco mix and match. $8.50 which is pretty reasonable. Meal wasn’t huge but it filled me up and it was only lunch. You can get 4 or 5...More
