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.

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 :)

The service was excellent BUT the food wasn't that good. Small portions but extremely costly...not a drinker so the bar doesn't matter to me. Saw many people walk in and out.

I am so disappointed. I really wanted to love this place.... the decor is wonderful and the concept is great. However, the service was absolutely appalling. It took more than 20 minutes for our server to check in with us..... and another 15 before she...More

Everything was substandard -- from the watery salsa to the pork belly tacos that were truly inedible! Slow service coupled with dry meat, cold black beans, and rice that tasted like paste make Fresca a place to avoid.
