With some of the best service in Mexico, Poncho and his family welcome you into their restaurant with open arms and complete the wonderful dinning experience with some of the best meals and desserts I have experienced in over 20 years of visiting the Bay of Banderas. From homemade Mole to Chile Rellenos, the cuisine has always been above and... More

It's rare to get a good steak dinner in Mexico but Wow! This place was awesome. I had the Archerra Steak and it was super tasty. Smothered in mushrooms and obviously marinated in a great sauce to make it both tender and delicious. The owner, Poncho, I both helpful and engaging. Don't come to Bucerias and miss this place.

Poncho and his family seem so pleased to come up with amazing traditional regional dishes for their guests. Chile rellanos are so country, so delicious. Mushroom & cheese fritatta is a study in seasoning, we get it every time. Shrimp done any way. We go 3 or 4 times every trip.

This is a great place to eat. Meals are inexpensive, Poncho is entertaining and the food is great. I love the family feel to this place. Kitchen is very small out the back but the meals it produces are great.

My dad comes here often. What brought him in the first time was Poncho. My father asked how the food was, poncho replied "the food is excellent but the service is terrible"...... My father cannot refuse a joker. That was a few years ago. Service is not terrible! Atmosphere is very inviting and the food is delicious! Definitely worth a... More

This restaurant has a great owner, good service and very good food. The owner is very friendly and speaks Spanish and English very well. This is a Mexican restaurant and is very well run and nicely setup for the customer.

The decor is on the funky side, hats and mugs on the on the walls, simple tables and chairs, with an atrium section which is sort of cool! Your host Poncho is friendly, outgoing and offers sincere and easy going service, in either Spanish or English. The food is simply prepared, of good quality and very well priced.
