Love their shrimp tacos and guacamole. Always a good place to go with friends for a fun night out at Downtown Orange.

This place was not good. Too expensive, poor service, snarky waiter and food very slow to arrive. Would never go there again.

Great food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommend. The pablano sauce was amazing. We had the guacamole for an app and was pleased from start to finish.

We had a group of seven for dinner; used the corkage. All dishes were excellent, all different; appetizers were a very good start, finished with churros after some interesting main dishes.
