We were a group of 10 and received excellent service and the food was amazing! We sat outside in the court yard. The only complaint would be the fans they had running which were for the bugs?

The cheese appetizer we had with duck on it was very good. The la Fonda special and chicken fajitas were good. Sit on the patio if possible. There is a tree that covers the whole thing.
