This place is a little louder, older, and weathered so I was a little skeptical when we arrived. In fact, we walked past first to see what else was around as we were looking for steak specifically. After not finding much else, we came back...More

Good fun, good food, great staff. We've been here every year for the past 4 years. The food, mostly Mexican, is authentic and the staff do a great job in presenting it. Table side guacamole preparation is an education, and tastes great. It's fun to...More

Fabulous friendly welcoming and attentive staff. Incredible fillet steak cooked to perfection followed by the most delicious crepe suzette freshly prepared at our table. Everything about this restaurant was amazing.

Husband picked this restaurant while walking by. I was skeptical as the menu had mostly fish pictures. I admit I was wrong- it was amazing. Guacamole made at the table, serenaded by music and 2 for 1 drinks. A great find !

Like everything on this street this is aimed at rich American tourists who want the ''holiday'' experience. We had just arrived and were hungry and jetlagged, though the staff seemed unable to recognise we didn't want their overly excited theme park style sales pitch. Food...More

Unlike another review I was not hussled up here and tip was not hidden in the price. Steak was cooked perfect and the waiter was polite and attentive. Shame so many tourists miss good local places like this.
