Nice busy but pricey Mexican place. Drinks are their forte. Food was good, but reinforced the old saw that you can't get really good Mexican food north of Texas unless it's a food truck.

Had delicious and fresh lobster guacamole at temazcal. The tacos were tasty - particularly the skirt steak tacos. Good outside bar ambiance that is right near edge of dock. A good option near the convention center.

Food and location was 5 star. Great fresh tasting ceviche. We were unlucky with our waitress. Very rude - bad day maybe but it ruins some of the experience. Don't expect a big fat gratuity if you don't deliver

This place has great food and fantastic views. It is my second visit here. Night life during the weekends is great they have a DJ and a good crowd. I am making it my business to come here every time I reach Boston.

Great drinks, great view, great ambience - and that was before the food! The meat for the fajitas was tender, the shrimp were perfectly cooked (overcooked shrimp is a pet peeve), and the enchiladas were great. We also had the tuna tartar for an appetizer. It was pleasant, but lacked the zip I am used to (needed lime and sesame... More

Beautiful ambience and and equally appealing menu. We ordered tequilas, nachos and chicken fajitas. All three were very well made. In fact the food quantity was huge and one dish is more than enough for two people.

Service was good. The food was excellent and the presentation was beautiful. We got the traditional margaritas, lobster guacamole, Chile beef stuffed peppers, and the filet wrapped in bacon. Good atmosphere and even though we were here in the winter the views of the harbour were lovely. We will be back

Was there mid-December. Birthday eve, and traveling for work. Was in walking distance from the hotel. Good food . Service was just okay. Had quesadilla. Really nice tasting. However, I will say that they brought me a complimentary flan dessert with candles, caramel sauce and chocolate sauce that spelled out Happy B-day. Nice touch!
