“Wonderful food and margaritas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We walked around Victoria Street in the afternoon, looking for a restaurant for dinner. After two weeks of West-Coast food, we were craving something "foreign". After spotting Quilas, we made a reservation for that night, although that wasn't really needed. The restaurant itself isn't huge, but has that nice, homey Mexican feel to it. Our nice waitress from Latvia was attentive throughout the night, and we even got a quick visit from the lovely owner!

As for the food itself, it was divine and not too heavy. We were given a basket of fresh warm nachos with home-made salsa while we were looking over the menu, which is unusual for West-Canada but much appreciated, seeing as they were delicious! Three of us had the margarita, which was probably the best one I've ever had (and I drink a lot of margaritas!). For starters, we shared the nachos locos and the home-made guacamole, which is made right at your table and served with fresh tortilla chips. Both appetisers were excellent! As for our main course, two of us had the rancheros quesadillas (yummy), one the chicken fajitas (great) and the fourth member of our party had the stuffed pepper (very nice). We did not go home hungry!

If you're looking for a nice Mexican eatery in Kamloops, look no further!

“A gem..... Authentic Central American food, with excellent service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

This is a true gem in Kamloops, and one of the best meals that we have ever had here. This is a small restaurant on Victoria Street (so lots of eateries) and initially rather innocuous; however, the food is wonderful... the tortillas are soft and warm, the nachos crisp, warm and tasty, the vegetables fresh and excellent quality, and the margueritas to-die-for. We highly recommend the loco nachos, ranchero quesadilla, chimichanga, and the fajitas.

Do visit! We will definitely be back.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Thoroughly nice meal with good service. Lots of choice and presented well. If you are looking for a change of cuisine as we were then this could be for you. Easy parking in the road outside the restaurant and a nice quiet location. You will not be disappointed.
