This might not be the finest restaurant in the area, but when it comes to value for money it's in the very top. We enjoyed a 2 course mea each, and felt like we had gotten more than we had paid for. The staff was nice, and polite. We will definately come back when we are in the area again.

My wife and I eat here regularly and it's always a good solid and safe choice when we are hungry. The food is really nice, fresh and tasty and is good value for money.

Zack and his team do a great job on the service side of things and even at very busy times they will do their best to get you looked after quickly. All in all we like going here and would strongly recommend if you're in Duquesa Port.

Don`t you just hate food that comes out of the oven, maybe microwave, that then has cold salsa put on top. Authentic Mexican this is not, Mexican for the tourists, ok passable but not good enough for me at the price.
We shared nachos and at 10€ I want something better than cheese partially covered nachos with three bland dips. The main was a Mexican BBQ platter of chicken dry, steak tough and pork ribs with the aforementioned cold salsa poured on top and when asked if everything was ok, giving the waiter an easy ride, I asked for a hot chillie sauce to try to liven up the food. When this came and bare in mind Mexico has some of the hottest sauces it was half the strength of Tabasco. Two courses, two glasses of wine and a cocktail for 48€ ,nothing complementary.........avoid

We ate here on the first night of our holiday, simply because it had a table free right at the front as we didn't know any of the restaurants at all.
What a great start to our trip. Everything was cooked fresh and came up really hot. The nachos were superb and we had both chicken nachos and the fiesta nachos (with everything!) for starters. On our second visit during our second week I had the nachos as a main meal, that's how big the portions are.
The fajitas were generous and served with all the trimmings you'll need, salsa, sour cream etc. My teenage sons had a texas burger and bacon & cheese burger. These were very big and the boys were both very stuffed by the end of it!

The girls waiting the tables were efficient and friendly; not too chatty but did a great job, to be honest I think they were overshadowed by the crazy guy!

All in all great value and highly recommended if you have young kids and teenagers in tow.
