If you're fed up of constantly eating Greek food on your holiday or like me you just love Mexican food, this is the place to go! The portions are huge and so tasty. We had chilli nachos to start and then spicy beef enchilladas and burritos for mains! With 6euro cocktails and 1.50euro beers at happy hour you cannot go wrong.
The staff are also extremely friendly and helpful at making the right meal choices!
If we are ever back in Paros we will 100% be eating here again!!

After many weeks of Greek cuisine I opted for the advertised Thai Curry that tasted nothing like a Thai curry but maybe, just maybe a Morocan dish?
Sangria was also very average.Stick to the Greek

Having read that this restaurant was quite high up on trip advisor we decided to try it.
The waiter was a English man who was really lovely. However because it was just him and another man they kept forgetting things, so it took us about 20 minutes just to get our wine as they kept forgetting to bring it.
Now to the food, Nachos and guacamole to start were very average. Then to the mains, we had quassadilla and a burrito. The quassadilla had the cheapest cheese on it with the guacamole sauce which is the weirdest thing to me as these two things do not go. Also having had quesadillas before we expected it toasted and to taste very different. This was not toasted it was literally just a tortilla with cheese and avocado - very bad.
Now to the burrito which is like no other burrito I have tasted (not in a good way). The burrito was just bolagnaise sauce on a tortilla - disgusting. The bean sauce was actually sickly and the rice was not nice.

Basically this is not Mexican food. It's really horrible food, we were very upset, having had amazing food in Paros, this was by far the worst.

If you want to go for happy hour cocktails then do. However if you want food don't eat here, I hate being mean about places because the waiter was so lovely, just the food was very bad and far too expensive.

This nice little restaurant is the perfect after beach place. Serves the best frosted beer and good, uncomplicated food. Like many Paros restaurants, they have all kinds of food from Greek to Thai, but it's the Mexican dishes that are worth the trip (nice to eat something else that Greek every once in a while during your stay). Hang around for a good party later in the evening and drink their fabulous strawberry mojito.

We like Mexican food and we went for breakfast. They have different morning dishes than other restaurants. More like a Mexican restaurant, we tried all 4 types of breakfast and they were not tasty at all. The waiter was not polite at all, instead of an orange juice, we had one that was expired and tasted really bad. He looked very surprised and we had to pay for the next one.

The beans and tomato sauce is really bad, as well as the tortillas.
