Being local we have been loyal customers in supporting neighborhood restaurants. When Alfredo opened..we were one of the first patrons...it was always a hit and miss depending on whether the owner/chef prepared the salsa and the food...service was always spotty...off late and in the last few visits..quality and taste of food and service has deteriorated big time...it is pathetic...even the...

We planned to eat somewhere else, but it was closed, so we ate here - What a delicious surprise! Friendly staff, informative chef, scrumptious food creatively displayed, comfy seating, good bar selection, quiet atmosphere, interesting decor, . . . We'll visit again soon!

We used to eat here, but the food quality has really gone down and it is a shame as it would have been nice to have a decent mexican restaurant close by. Don't wast your time.

How could anyone rate this rat hole as any more than 1 star? We got guac.. but they forgot to put the seasonings in.. So it was mashed avacado. The rest of the food was slightly better but certainly not smething one would eat by choice. I will admit we tried a second time and it was nearly as bad.

Tables by the window have an ocean view! Great service and wonderful homemade tasting dishes. Plenty of free parking . An undiscovered gem in Palos Verdes.

I think the food is wonderful. Well-prepared and presented, Flavors that represent more of central and east coast Mexico in addition to classic California style. Nice wait staff but sometimes under staffed. Bar does a great job too.

Food was good. We were there Sunday for lunch, and it was not crowded, but the staff was very pleasant and attentive.

I really enjoy the food here, but be prepared to wait. We have tried coming at 5:00 thinking that if it's not busy we could get served faster. Not the case. We have been about 6 times and each time we have to wait to get our order taken, or wait for our meal, or check. It is a good... More
