It's a pleasant restaurant in a strip mall. It has all the expected Mexican specialties; tortas, antojitos, and enchiladas, and the piquancy can be modified a little. There is a bowl of salsa and tortilla chips to start. The service is polite and professional. The prices are reasonable. They have a good selection of top shelf tequilas. For those who... More

What a GREAT find! This restaurant is tucked away in a strip mall. It's not easy to find. But, you'll be happy you looked for it. Food is reasonably priced. Portions are large. Service is ALWAYS great. And the taste of everything on the menu is fresh and superb. I think that sums it up. We LOVED it!

I've only had lunches there. The food is authentic, satisfying, and reasonably priced. There is more than the usual tacos and enchiladas from which to choose. There is a full bar and imported beers. The decor is pleasant.

I love Mexican food and like to try new places. I ordered guacamole for the table along with salsa and chips. Salsa seemed to be from a jar. Family ordered quesadillas, they were ok. Not the place if you are looking for authentic Mexican

Great restaurant for the family to go and relax. The staff is friendly and the food is ok. We enjoy the atmosphere more than the food.

Went there on Saturday evening and the food (tacos al pastor)and service were excellent, went back on Sunday to enjoy their food again and try another dish and waited over 10 minutes once I was seated( no one came to get my drink order), I tried flagging down the waitress and just got waived off, so I left.

We recently moved to Fishkill and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and were sort of overwhelmed by the excellent, friendly service. We will be back.

The food was wonderfully authentic Mexican food. My husband is Mexican and I know my Mexican food. This place is good! The rest of the diners were very satisfied with their food as well.

We went back to Cilantro based on our first visit. We were disappointed. The service was welcoming, but we had to wait too long to order and we were on a time schedule. We both ordered the same, soft tacos. They were skimpy portions and came cold to the table. They were not anything to write home about. The chicken... More

We're really sorry to read about your most recent experience with us, Fang. It's always stressful when you're in a time crunch and things aren't moving as quickly as you need them to. We can assure you that our tacos are usually flavorful and generous in size, so it sounds like you may have caught us on an off night.... More
