After traveling all the way across country for a wedding, I arrived at SJC airport after 11pm. I wasn't keen on trying to find real food that late so I just checked into my hotel and feel asleep. When my friend suggested I meet her...More

This restaurant is located on the end of Santana Row. It serves up great middle Mexican fare and has great ambiance indoors, and fun patio outside.

The table side guacamole is superb! The quesadilla with epazote is unique, try it! Overall terrific food, cocktails! It's a lively place and the service is very good. It's a little spendy for Mexican food but this ain't no Taco Bell!

Looking for somewhere to eat on Santana Row in San Jose and we stumbled across a waiter making guacamole on demand at an outside table. Naturally we wanted the same and also had a great main course. Recommended!

Came here with a group, so cannot really comment on value for money. Had a great salad, and loved the fact that they make the guacamole at the table... fun evening in a nice part of San Jose!

Located on pretty much the only street with any form of life in San Jose, a great spot. Spacious inside, even if a little dated decor. Extremely helpful and chatty staff, although perhaps don't take recommendations on the Mexican beer, stick to what you know....More
