We have been here several times previously and enjoyed it immensely, however this time we were disappointed. May have just been us, but we found the whole experience a let down. Food was okay, service was okay. Won't be hurrying back. :(

Although the title is Mexico, we were pleasantly surprised at the tasty fusion experience. Brought here by friends and expecting traditional Mexican, which we are not fans of, we enjoyed the shared plates and interesting taco choices. Nice staff.
