Their shrimp and fish tacos and guacamole were wonderful and prices were competitive with other nearby restaurants. We ate late afternoon and the restaurant was not crowded.

Best shrimp ceviche and margarita I have had so far on my trip. Lime didnt overtake the ceviche which made it so delightful, however i couldn't finish my plate as the portion was huge. I highly recommend this place.

Ordered the fajitas and a steak. Food was ok, nothing special. Service was attentive without being slow or too in your face. 2 beers and a tequila promo for 80 pesos good value. Street entertainers left a little to be desired, but not the restaurants...More

Very expensive for what they offer. The tacos place next to them offer by FAR better quality than them, also a fraction of the price. Watch out!!! You have been told.
