We treated our neighbor to a birthday lunch at Dos Padres this afternoon. We hadn't been here for many years and won't be back soon. The menu is limited and pricey and the food only OK. Our neighbor thought her tacos were very good. My husband ordered Calamari which tasted fine. My taco salad looked beautiful, piles of shredded lettuce,... More

We had a great time and enjoyed the great selection of appetizers. Very lively bar area and it was Sunday. They even had our favorite brand of drinks. We were celebrating and they had sparkling wine.

We visit once each summer to eat Enchiladas ($15) and take in the local flavor of an old time bar. This is a place that has combined two adjacent store fronts into one restaurant. Not really wheel chair accessible with multiple steps and levels throughout the place. You can eat in a more traditional setting of tables in rooms or... More

My daughter and I ate here in June 2016. What a great people watching spot . Don't eat the food. The lime prawns were medium cooked . The mango salsa was lost between the kitchen and my table? Where is it? It came with some kind of green rice. I tried it...gross. My daughter had the chicken fajita salad. I... More

I use to come here often, but I was 't happy with the quality going in the wrong direction. Was in Old Fairhaven the other day and thought I'd give then another chance. The other patrons were enjoying their meals but when mine came I'd wish I had ordered something else or even better, gone elsewhere. Since I couldn't see... More

This restaurant was great in the seventies and eighties however it has consistently gone downhill ever since then I've eaten there for 5 times over the last 15 years and everytime I go it's worse. Last night's dinner was just bad , I could go into detail but why father, I think this restaurant is on its last legs

My husband and I thought we would give this place another try. First time we went was about 10 years ago and we weren't impressed. But we thought it's been awhile so we would give it another shot. We decided to sit in the bar. The dining room was empty. First of all, it smells. Bad. We were greeted by... More
