For starters we split the ceviche natural which is a large bowl of seafood in a mild, light, lime-flavored sauce. There was a large portion for two... More

What a Wonderful Feast we had tonight at this very Special 16Y Anniversary Tasting complete with a loud but very good & versatile Mariachi band!

We didn't save room for dessert. sigh. Everything we ordered was fresh and tasty. The portions were generous. The prices were fair. The service was great. We will be back. Possibly I'll order dessert first.

Great place!!! Loved sitting outside. Amazing guacamole/fresh chips! Portions are perfect or even to share as well. I recommend to go early because it's always packed.

The food is fresh and good and the service is extremely friendly. I love their fish dishes and it is worth it to watch for their special menus. The only downside is it is BYO, so you have to remember that BEFORE sitting down at the table.

My wife and I first went here when we moves in the area a couple years back. Small in size but man do they make food food. Seafood so fresh, great mole and just every dish tastes great. Its a creative menu with some changes periodically which makes it nice. Reasonable price and BYOB.
