This restaurant is horrible. The service is slow and apathetic. It took close to one hour to get our simple order done. While waiting, we asked the server if there was Wifi to which he replied yes. He said he would get us the password to it. After about 20 minutes and several reminders, he commented that the Wifi was out. Finally, after eating our mediocre meal, we ordered our dessert. We asked the waiter for a description. What he brought out did NOT match the description. We left without leaving a tip. Oh yeah, forgot to mention that credit cards are not accepted.

I just tried to go there yesterday. It was OBVIOUSLY open, there were 3 people outside recruiting diners. Nobody sitting outside. So I start to sit down and make contact with the head waiter / manager. He says something complex (my spanish is basic) so I asked him if it wasn't open and he nodded yes. So I said okay - even though it was an obvious lie. I went like 50 feet away where they couldn't see me. Literally two minutes later three white american girls go right up and get seated. I'm black, of course. I went back and gave him a piece of my mind. These guys are scum, avoid them.

The worst food I have eaten in Mexico.
The arrachera steak was tough, my wife's chicken was terrible.
Unfortunate, a great location, wasted.
DOES not accept credit cards either.
