Located in a picturesque outdoor area called "The Lakes" & nestled amongst Unami Burger and P.F. Changs is a gem of a Mexican eatery. Decorated on heavy velvet red booths ,whimsical tiles and heart chandeliers the eye candy decor does not disappoint-nor does the cuisine.
The menu is a lovely one of tradicional dishes with modern presentation and quality-(not insane quantity of piles of beans and cheese) has something for everyone. Fresh guac,blended salsa&very good chips, a vast selection of drinks ( sparkling Voss !) and the food .Oh yes the food.
Our romantic table (with very attentive service) enjoyed chile relleno with a delicate red sauce,extraordinary moist and fresh chicken breast,cheese and the most delicious chile I have ever had in a restaurant. Taquitos were also enjoyed.Looking forward to going back and experiencing something else ( although I want the Chile again).
I highly recommend this restaurant for a sexy evening,quiet lunch or even a large party (booths are big) . The bar area looked beautiful with Moravian star fixtures and good seating.

This restaurant has a lovely location, beautiful decor, friendly staff, enormous margaritas and surprisingly bland food. The homemade guacamole was fresh, but bland. The chili rellenos were hot (with heat) and bland. The chips crispy and the salsa - wait for it - bland. So, it's a toss-up. Kind of like a sopapilla - puffed up and full of air.

Not your typical Mexican dishes. Loved everything. Scallop tacos were like candy! Blue corn tacos were great. Awesome margaritas. Good atmosphere. Can't wait to go back.

What a great looking restaurant! I give it one bright shining star for that..Service was good so a big shining star for that....NOW what I'm here for the food and drinks...margarita great, guacamole good...my dinner so bland I could hardly eat it and sorry I did not give it back...I ordered enchiladas suiza, what I got was a corn tortilla wrapping unseasoned chicken and the green sauce was there only for plating very dry...also ordered the cactus salad which turns out to be a black bean salad a couple pieces of cactus hiding somewhere under the beans and also very bland...six people in my party only one was happy with their dinner...food may be fresh but lacking big on seasoning and how about some sauce for enchiladas!

Yes, another fabulous lunch at a wonderful restaurant in the heart of Thousand Oaks. When we want a quiet, romantic spot to share a great lunch we go to Sabor Cocina. The service is always first class and the food is prepared artistically and tasty. Try the Tacos Hongos while you sit at the outdoor patio.
