We had one of the best food at this place. We tried many places in Gili Air during our one-week stay there, but this place was exceptional. Atmosphere: you feel welcome, cozy and comfortable. The design is so authentical, that you feel somewhere in Mexico...More

One of the best restaurants on Gili Air, which provides a genuine Mexican restaurant experience. Really tasty food, great atmosphere and friendly staff. Oh, and they have a swimming pool as well! and great Margaritas! :)

We loved the food and margaritas here. Great vibe and attentive staff. The most challenging thing was finding the restaurant as we mistakenly thought it was along the beach. Recommend for anyone seeking some tasty Mexican.

Wow I love this menu. The sopa azteca is wonderful! Also had the enchillada with prawns. A little dry but taste wise it was good. Nice music the place could do with a bit more decoration. I love the entrance over the pool.

We visited here on our first night on the island. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a selection of freshly prepared Mexican meals, there were very reasonably priced. The setting was very peaceful and relaxing, would highly recommend a visit.

This place must have recently moved from a beachfront location to one slightly inland as it was definitely not where our map said it should be! While the location was underwhelming (just near Space Bar in a rather unattractive part of the village) the nachos...More

Oh my God, their margaritas are incredible. We had a lovely dinner at a table on the beach. Everything seems made from scratch from the salsa to the chips and everything in between, and is really tasty. Great fish dishes, friendly service and good value...More

Location is a bit off and the surroundings are not directly charming. The food was great though. We had the vegetarian burger and chicken enchiladas.
