Sow service, dining area understaffed, REALLY bad food - dry and tasteless. I, and others, left most on our plates. Go for Tequila, skip the food!

Pleasantly surprised at the quality and freshness of the food. Nice modern feel, excellent service Red sangria was very good, chicken fajitas were well seasoned and the added fresh squash to the onions and peppers made it more sumptuous. Loved the appetizer of Brussel sprouts....More

I lived in Mexico for 10 years and this is NOT Mexican food ... I think the place changed from a bad Cantonese restaurant and became a super bad "Mexican? restaurant. One waitress on duty scurrying between tables, a charge for awful chips and salsa,...More

Read reviews and reserved a table with some trepidation. However the restaurant was packed with happy customers and the margaritas delicious. Which did help with somewhat choppy service by the running young waitstaff. Though wearing tennis shoes, we watched two separate incidents of waitresses falling...More

I went here with a group of friends on a friday night. We got a table for 10 with minimal wait. The food was great, fresh and everyone raved about it. The drinks were great also. We will definitely be back.

This is not only the worst Mexican restaurant I've ever been to ... it';s simply the worst! One waitress running between tables, a charge for terrible chips and salsa, and the WORST Mexican food I've ever eaten! One step above is Taco Bell.

This had to be the worst tacos I have ever eaten. I love bar taco and sayulita so was hoping for something similar. It was not even edible for some of the tacos. The fried chicken was undercooked. The mushroom garlic taco you could not...More

We learned about Fresca through Po's, apparently a common owner, but it took us a while to get here. Really good. Uncommonly pleasant atmosphere for CT (although their poor corn plants need loving care!) and the food was wonderful. I love mussels and their Cerveza...More

The atmosphere, service, and food here was phenomenal! I especially like the fried avocado tacos! DELICIOUS! You don't expect such a big, nice restaurant like this in a town like Colchester so it is a very nice surprise upon walking inside :)
