First: Drinks. House margarita is $6.00. Order an extra shot for $.50 - makes it much better. Hubby says "delicious." Designer margaritas run up to $15.00 per.
Wine: Expensive. Least costly by the glass, two offerings each of white and red for $9.00. I had the Malbec, which was delicious ($9.00). Everything else is 10, 11, 12 and above per glass.
Food: Delicious. We have been coming to this venue since it opened. We used to go when they were located in Nogales, Sonora and LOVED it. When they came to Tubac, the prices went WAY up, but to be expected. Hubby had the Cabrilla salsa verde again tonight - he said it was to die for! He has it almost every time and said this time it was even better than he remembered. I had a bite - trés bon!
I have previously had the chicken quesadillas and they are the BEST, especially if you order guaquemole, sour cream and salsa with them. When there in March I mis-ordered and said chicken "enchiladas" instead of quesadillas, and boy, I was not disappointed - they were GREAT. Tonight I ordered the spinach salad with ahi tuna extra and a raspberry vinaigrette - delicious! Hubby has previously had the flounder and it too was wonderful. Just about everything comes with beans and rice (and, why not in a Mexican restaurant) but I prefer not to consume those calories, which is why I ordered the salad tonight. If it's on my plate, I will, unfortunately, consume it! No will power have I - I LOVE refried beans! So, a few more offerings for the diet-conscious would be appreciated.
Atmosphere: it's a beautiful restaurant, but the lighting is way too low. The glass on the ceiling is gorgeous but I struggled to read the menu, which print is too small. The "wine-by-the-glass" menu is really difficult to read - the print is VERY SMALL and not a plain font - very hard to read. The main wine menu by the bottle is much easier to read. Would suggest some sort of candlelight on the tables and bigger font on the menus.
I think the prices are a little high, which is why we only goes about 2-3 times a year. We were celebrating our birthdays tonight. We always go in March when entertaining our relatives and they always want to go here - they love the food! We also went in May when our daughter was here and she thought the food was FAB!
We would go more often if there were more menu items in the $8-14 range, perhaps a nice fish entrée without all the rice and beans would be a great option for me! I don't like to pay for food I don't want to eat.
I only had one drink tonight because of the expense - most times out in a restaurant I almost always have two glasses of wine when I can get a decent (5-6 oz pour) for $5-7 per glass. I had to fight myself to order even one glass at $9. Very happy is tasted so good :)
