This was the first restaurant we stumbled across after getting off the Catalina Express. We were hungry and tired! Hostess was nice to stow our suitcases while we ate. Everything was hot and fresh. My son says these are the best taquitos he's ever had....More

We had eaten here before on our anniversary. This time we were on a cruise & Catalina was an excursion stop. We chose to eat here again with our entire family. Great margaritas and great Mexican food. Did not disappoint.

There were four of us and we had soft burritos, fried rice and BIG Margaritas. What a great lunch it was. Everything was delicious and the waiter was very nice. We will definitely go back the next time we go to Catalina Island.

The windows are open to the street, the staff is friendly and the food is very good. Prices are "in-line" with the quality of the food and the location.

We had an hour to burn before a scheduled tour so we stopped in for a drink and I'm glad we did. We had been to a few Catalina establishments for drinks, and while some were pretty good, they were expensive. Not so here. The...More
