A very unique restaurant as no other Mexican in koh samui, and the ones that do Mexican food, do not compare to here. Great service. We were lucky enough to meet the warm and friendly owner too!!

Both my GF and I went for the chicken fajitas. Very generous portion size and tasty too. Happy hour promotions on drinks in the evening too. Would recommend if looking for something different.
