We had been wanting to try this restaurant for quite a while but never did until recently and now we wonder why it took us so long. What appears to be a Taco Shop from the street is only part of the establishment. Once inside the front door, we discovered a full service restaurant with every table occupied. Many customers...

The staff and food here are absolutely fantastic! Very kind and caring family run restaurant still using abuelas recipes from Guatalajara. They make all their food and sauces from scratch. Tons of love put into the food. Top notch... No joke. I'm going again and again and again until I exhaust their menu... very impressed!

This small restaurant is a bit out of the way on Crossley Road but the trip is worth it. The food is fresh and tasty, authentic, and reasonably priced. We enjoyed great service.

The chips were too thick for our taste and not warm. The food was just ok, nothing grand. The service was weird. We were given a seat and menus, then a table was set beside us and another behind us. They took both of the other tables' orders before ever coming back to ours. We flagged a guy down and... More

We enjoyed a dinner at La Perlita. Margaritas were delicious! Service was great. People very friendly. Food was good and plentiful. I had expected dishes to have a greater flavour punch and real spiciness to them. For us, it was too light in this respect.

We went here based on the trip advisor rating and the mention of the chile rellenos, which I generally love. Unfortunately, I was unimpressed. That may be because I'm fond of more of a Tex-Mex style, and these rellenos are what I think may be more of a West-coast style, where the main feature the dish pushes forward is the... More

Great food. Incredible value. Strongly recommend. Sit by the window in the evening and watch the sun set on the hills.
