This place is a really nice little surprise on the peninsula. Food is good, especially guacamole, and the granitas are a must try on a hot day in Dar.

I live in the middle of Africa without access to Mexican restaurants, so at first I thought maybe I was crazy for thinking this was the best Mexican food I'd ever had. It atmosphere was authentic, the music, the staff... I would pay to go back to Dar es Salaam just to eat there!

This place is super cute and the food was unbelievably good. My burrito was probably the best I have ever had - even better than food I have had IN MEXICO and in the States. The passion fruit margaritas were great, the dips were on-point, chips were homemade, and my friend had the quesadilla which she also loved. EAT HERE,... More

I go here for the dip alone, it is the best in Tanzania. My go to main is a burrito, which tastes great. We often also get take away, and have worked with the staff to reduce packaging, bringing our own tupperware containers to cloth bags to put the dip, chips and burrito, that way we have no plastic packaging...

Did 3 meals there with various colleagues and they were all pleased with the menu, food quality and service. Give it a try, I doubt you will be disappointed and if you are, it won't cost you a much in the end.

Everything we ordered was great, and we ate a lot! We had a couple of starters to share, for mains I had fish tacos which were different to what I'm used to (which is hake in batter) but amazing, the rest had chimichangas and quesadillas which they loved. The drinks menu is quite impressive, and would definitely go back on... More
