The chips and salsa were great. Add in the guacamole and queso and it was a great meal. We also were part of a large group and they did a buffet. Very good. The shrimp was my favorite. I would definitely go again.

Ate at the bar around 9:30pm after a meeting. Margarita was good and not sickly sweet. The tapas of chicken flautas was tasty but did not come with any salsa. I eventually got some salsa and it was quite good. (Note: I was never offered...More

This restaurant has fairly spartan decor, but good space with wide open wooden floors and lots of room. The gas fireplaces are a nice touch. The Mexican food is good, but we were asked tableside if we wanted spicy or mild salsa and we asked...More

This is a beautiful property. Prices are very reasonable. Food was very bland with little or no salt or traditional Mexican flavors such as Chile's, cumin, oregano, garlic or strong onion flavors. The tortillas that come with the 3 taco meals were the smallest ones...More

When reading the reviews I was expecting really a nice Mexican with good food. It is a bit like McDonald’s. You feel like in a cantine, it’s noisy and the interior is not appealing. The nachos are greasy. We ordered Guacamole for 9,50 Usd!!!! It’s...More
