Simply a scam. They take advantage of your moment of joy and distraction to start offering and charging you anything they can. If you don't believe me go ahead and try it.

Even though everyone is super nice! The food is overpriced and look terrible! It is impossible to carry a conversation since the "Mariachi" keep screaming beside you all the time "sertanejo" music in spanish! Do not recomend at all!More

When Zorro and Freida are serving tequila shots (doubles) at dinner I think you know dinner isn't going to be super authentic. Fun and the Margeritas were good but the food is really only average. Find a Blue Agave if you want good Mexican food.

What a great themed resto in the heart of Barra... A rowdy atmosphere entwined with the Brasilian party feel. A night with friends and family is a must here. Birthdays, celebrations, you name get involved here.. The menu is extensive, a lot of great and...More

Beautiful restaurant and lively atmosphere and good Mexican food that could have been a little spicier. Roving musicians came to the tables and attempted to sell tequila shots to everyone. The disappointment came with the bill when we were charged a total of $70 R...More

Wasn't that good. Place looks great, but the food doesn't deliver. Tastes like it's all come out of a packet, lacked a lot of flavour and the service wasn't brilliant either.

We eat here on two occasions during our stay in Barra. Good food and a lively atmosphere. Watch out for Zorro and Frida with their shots though - quite an expensive extra with a weird head routine thrown in for free.

It's a great place but. Can only give it 4 stars because even on a quiet night the service is a little slow and haphazard. The food is great, the atmosphere is superb and it's loads of fun but you see loads of people arguing...More
