Great authentic Mexican dining on the Santa Monica pier. Great views of the ocean and Santa Monica coastline while eating authentic Mexican cuisine and drinking world class Margaritas.

You'll find this treasure right at the end of the pier. We were seated quickly and the service was great! The salsa was good and my seafood enchiladas were amazing. Fun place to sit on the patio and watch the crowds while enjoying delicious food!

You can enjoy the breathtaking view of the pier, the beach, and the ocean from your table. Not to mention they have very good Mexican food at a decent price considering the location.

Was a little disappointed after a long flight and first outing in SantaMonica, we ate here. The daiquiri was very good. I ordered the wet burrito. Marginally good.

The food is only so-so. It’s not going to amaze you with it’s flavor so the place is a bit overpriced in that regard. The Margaritas however were excellent. A little cheesy to offer the complimentary photo thing.

Great spot to take a few minutes rest when walking the pier. We came in for drinks and they kept brining unlimited chips and salsa which was delicious. Guacamole is made right at the table in front of you which looked amazing. Beer prices are...More

We didn't book for a lunch - but I guess if you know what time you want to eat then booking might be prudent
