For my birthday I was taken by the family to Kukulkan. At first, I did not think much of the place, but when the food started arriving, I totally changed my mind. All dishes and condiments are prepared on the premises by the owner and...More

We came for lunch and the place was almost empty. Yet it took over an hour for us to be served, with no explanation nor apologies. In addition all plates are stand-alone dishes which implies that 3 (really small) tacos and rice will cost you...More

Don't let the run down strip-mall setting fool you- this place is a gem! I am so happy it is in my neighbourhood(although, the food is so good it is worth travelling for). The best Mexican food in the city in an actual family-run restaurant....More

Yes, it’s small. In a totally uninspiring side strip mall. But once inside, it’s a cheerfully decorated homey spot. The menu is a a bit more extensive than the average Canadian Mexican restaurant, you can tell there is a homemade preference to the choices. Food...More

Comfortable. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Wine by the glass was expensive. Asked for their most favourable dish and got the most expensive item on the menu (should have seen that coming). $100 for two (with tax) was a bit high, I thought, for Mexican food...More

Freezing rain and a snow storm brewing!!!!we sat with our backs to the window and enjoyed a tasty trip to Mexico. Mole to die for, not many restaurants make it this good. Presentation, service and taste A+++. The best part is watching the Chef/Owner and...More

What a hidden gem this out-of-the way restaurant is! Don't come here if you are looking for an haute cuisine experience. Instead, it is a family-run restaurant where you can find authentic and delicious Mexican food, with ever-changing specials around the calendar. The family is...More
