Sat outside and atmosphere felt like you we're in Mexico. Delish fish tacos w cabbage and a kick to the sauce. Guacamole to die for. Beef taco meat slow cooked, tender & shredded. Chicken was moist and flavorful - lots of leftovers and very reasonable

When we entered the resturant and we were told that the kitchen was closing in a 30 minutes. We said OK and were seated. When the waiter came back for our drink order and we gave him our dinner order as well. We felt very...More

My meal was great; very tasty. The atmosphere is very casual... This is not a place to go if you're in a hurry. Tables are close together. I received good service and pleasant conversation even though they were very busy. Outdoor or indoor seating. Small...More

Most of my mex meals were at Mexican village in Detroit where pre dinner margaritas sometimes adjust the palate. I was pleasantly surprised when after only 1 mojito (which was tasty too ), the chicken breast in mole sauce was yummy. I thought the salsa...More

There were five of us and a baby in a pram, cruising, but becoming increasingly hungry. We came across this place, stopped in, and had a lovely, generous Mexican meal. It was very fairly priced and thoroughly enjoyable. Given the opportunity, we all said we...More

We arrived shortly after six, and although the restaurant was not (yet) full, the service was on the slow side. We had to ask for our place settings and for water. As the place filled up, it was clear that staffing was a problem. Our...More

Our family visited on Easter Sunday afternoon. The service, by two pleasant young men, was leisurely, but not overly slow. The Sopa Azteca was ok, but not very substantial, missing something I can't identify ... needed a little more chicken or vegetable chunks or something....More

I went here with my wife and younger son. We shared an elaborate salad and shrimp in a vegetable dish in which tomato predominated. I had the filleted fish for my main course; it was very good. My wife had a vegetable dish, which she...More

Fantastic authentic mexican food, not that Tex-Mex nonsense we find everywhere. I go there regularly and it is consistently great. The only "problem" could be that they are occasionally under-staffed, which explains slow service which leads cry-babies write nasty reviews simply because they didn't get...More

The restaurant is cute enough and the service was alright when I went. But the food was unremarkable. Stale tortilla chips, stale rice. Pretty expensive considering the quality of the food.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
