Quiet (relatively) outdoor seating and attentive wait staff. The homemade sangria really hit the spot on a warm evening. My wife had a fish burrito that she continued to talk about the next day. I had the carne asada and it was excellent.

Everything was terrific.

The lemon cilantro shrimp and mahi fish tacos were to die for. Looking for a gem and found it. Ambience was cute too and thus we found this to be a hit. Just wish they had "normal" margs other than just keylime margs.

Love Mexican food, so love to try out new places. Complimentary salsa and chips were excellent, especially the salsa. Have many vegetarian options, I ordered the Veggie Burrito, so good! Fiance and I also ordered a bucket of beers ($12 for 5) which included imports. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I thought this restaurant was very tasty. You would not notice the place walking by, but the atmosphere was great! The service was good (not spectacular, but definitely not bad), the outdoor seating was very nice (the decor was simple but nice and the fans kept the restaurant cozy), and it was definitely a fair price for the area and the amount of food that they gave you.

The food itself was very good. I had the salmon tacos, which came with three soft tacos with a good-sized portion of salmon with onions, lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese and rice and beans. It was plenty of food, but it did not leave you feeling stuffed. My wife had the scallops in a chipotle cream sauce with rice, beans, and mixed vegetables. She really enjoyed her meal, but said it was on the spicy side, which was not a bad thing, but she said a dollop of sour cream would have been nice.

The only complaint we had was the place is stingy on chips. The first basket of chips was free but you were charged $3.50 for another order of chips. In addition to that, the basket of chips was on the small side. That being said, the chips were tasty and the salsa was excellent. All-in-all I would definitely recommend this place for those who like Mexican food.

We were impressed with the food at this low-key Mexican restaurant. Really good fish with cilantro sauce. Good mole. Everything tasted super fresh. Nice to sit on the patio under the giant old trees.
