When visiting a tourist area in Canada it is unrealistic to expect authentic Mexican food, so when you dine here prepare for some unique presentations and flavors. Everyone in our group agreed that the food was good. Prices are typical for Banff, meaning expensive. Decor...More

First time visiting after years of going to Banff - looks dark from the outside but it lively and has a great Mexican menu selection. The half order of nachos would feed a family. Also enjoyed the tacos (shrimp and beef). Fresh salsa. Great service.

We stopped in after a long day of sightseeing. Food was delicious. Guacamole and chips was fresh and delicious. Steak fajitas were great.

Food was generous and hearty, atmosphere was lively and very welcoming for kids. The weekly deals were good - we went on a Tuesday so it was $5 plate of nachos and $5 sangria. We got there around 5:30 and there still was time before...More

We went looking for dinner. We had been advised by locals that we might have better Mexican at home. They were right. I will cache this with the fact we did not stay to eat. Most Spanish or Mexican restaurants offer chips and salsa as...More
