“Good service, nice chips with salsa and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

The service was very good and we got homemade chips and salsa for free. A very good start! The Margherita was also excellent. The food was very good and my Fajitas were a big portion.

“A great start”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

On my bucket list has been a trip to Napa country. We decided to stay in Calistoga and our first night's dinner was a hit at this restaurant. Warm friendly smiling waitress greeted us and we chose to sit outside with trees shading our table. We had a pitcher of delicious strawberry margaritas for only $30. The fajitas with prawns were ($18) were tasty. The fried ice cream rocked. Would definitely revisit!

“Fine Mexican stop on our trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

We stopped here with two families on our way through wine country. I'd say this is an above average Mexican eatery. The salsa was obviously fresh and home made, as were the chips. The menus are typical and what you'd expect. Food came out a bit slow, but the preparation was on and the flavors were true to the authentic feel. Margaritas were quality (we got the 'house' pours) and tasted fine.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in Calistoga, families, friends, couples, who would like a break from 'wine country fare' for an evening.

“Good value in Calistoga”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

Nice friendly atmosphere, lively bar, very decent food. Our take out chicken fajita burrito with chips and salsa was plenty for two people. The burrito was good and ready in lightning speed. Staff was very attentive. Best of all, it was very reasonably priced compared to many dining options in Calistoga. If you just want a casual, decent meal as an alternative to fine dining, this is a good choice.
