Being Mexican and growing up in the USA, I haven't had much luck finding a decent Mexican restaurant in Australia. This place was very good. The food was a little overpriced, but still delicious. If you go in for a visit, I recommend a side of their black beans with your dish and definitely the strawberry Margarita.

Booked early because of the 18 mthold. In and out as not to annoy adults after.
Food, had better, staff still learning. Front of room staff seemed to worry about phone and bookings rather than patrons that were there.

The restaurant looks good, will have another go later with a group.

Had dinner here 3 nights ago, our second time, first was when it just opened. The service is great, very attentive and happy to help. Had the queso fundido to start, delicious, and enjoyed the chicken fajitas to share. Downside - there really was the smallest amount of shredded cheese, pineapple, sour cream and chilli I have ever seen, which was a bit of a disappointment. The restaurant is quite pricey too (fajitas to share $49) but it is generally matched with the service and the view. All in all a good experience, but I will be asking for more sides next time!

We had dinner here last Sunday night, even though they were busy we were served promptly by helpful waitress. Shared chicken and beef tortillas which we found delicious and enough really for 3 people, so we over indulged.
Will definitely eat here when next in Kiama.
Also lovely view by day or night.

My husband & I went to this restaurant whilst on holidays. We have never been to a Mexican Restaurant before, although we are fond of home-made tacos! Not quite knowing what to order, we asked one of the wait staff. She was extremely helpful, pointing out the best choices if we wanted to share (which we did). The meal she suggested was a sizzling platter, heaped full of our selection of chicken, beef or prawns. We chose the prawns & beef ... both were cooked to perfection with a yummy sauce, on a bed of caramelised onions & chillies. Included were all the Mexican sides one would expect, such as guacamole, habanero chillies, refried black beans, rice, chutneys, salsa & a beautifully fresh, shaved beetroot & greens salad. There was so much food, we (almost) couldn't finish it! Everything was enhanced by the fact that as chilli lovers, we could choose from lots of different bottles of chilli sauces, all of which were displayed on a special wall & had fun names (can't name them here!). We would definitely recommend this restaurant as it was beautifully clean, well-presented, the food was great & the wait staff friendly, helpful & competent, without being intrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit & will be back again when in town!
