This is an upscale southwest style restaurant which features excellent, homemade guacamole. The lobster tacos are also outstanding!

Although we didn't have reservations here, the staff kindly found a table for us outside. It was a lovely and romantic setting, complete with heat lamps to keep us warm on a somewhat chilly evening. Service was good although they were very busy. The food was delicious with many choices of upscale Mexican fare presented beautifully. We will definitely be... More

This is the best Mexican restaurant that I've been to in the states! It compares to upscale traditional restaurants that I've been to on visits to Mexico! The menu has a great variety and the Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita is a Must!!

We went as a group of 5. We had a terrific meal, much better than the restaurants that pass of as Mexican. The food here is adventurous, tasty and well priced. The service was very good and there was a good wine list that the waiter understood.

My husband and I stayed at the Fairmont Princess this past weekend and decided to stay on site for dinner Friday night.
