Delicious and reasonably priced breakfasts! I like their eggs rancheros (50 pesos), generous portion and good service!

Quick and prompt service, the food was excellent and they were very accommodating to my request as I wanted my meal with a slight variation. I was very satisfied and pleased.

Great Mexican restaurant just off the edge of the square that serves very reasonably priced food All the usual Mexican specialties Good for cruise passengers looking for something authentic without having to go too far back in the neighbourhoods Easy to have a nice meal for under ten bucks

Sergio from Sergio's silver recommended this place. We almost couldnt find it. No sign, just the name on a door mat. Hands down the best mexican food I've had. We had the seafood platter and it was loaded with great food. Excellent choice if you want authentic mexican food.

Ate here with friends had "special tacos" and the grilled red snapper. Both were excellent. The refried beans are incredible. You'll want to order a side of them.

We had this restaurant recommended by a local guy and I must say it's absolutely delicious food the serve. The Mexican dishes you know are so good. And the mixed sea food plate was absolutely so good. We have been eating here several times during our week of staying.

We enjoyed dinner here. I had fish filet in garlic, my young son ended up eating most of it! Wife had chicken flajitas, daughter had a simple quesadilla. Prices very modest, location is only a short walk from the town square. Walked there for fresh churros from the cart by the church. Only disappointment was the back patio was closed... More
