This is a tiny little restaurant so if you don't mind dining on top of other people, you'll be okay here. The portions were huge. The quality was very good. Service was spot on. The location is within viewing distance of the Strand. Excellent value.

Had a meal here and whilst it cannot be described as fine dinning it is a fantastic place to eat authentic Mexican food. Soft tacos were so tasty, fast service which was warm and helpful. Would definitely recommend a visit.

We went to this restaurant on the advice of an Hermosa beach resident. We loved the cozy atmosphere, friendly service and delicious food. The portions were very generous and the views of the beach/sunset/park are awesome. Would absolutely return
