Great Mojitos served here . Service was prompt and friendly. Food was fresh and well presented , especially 7 seafood soup. I would have liked to see more chilli and spice in their dishes.

If your looking for a fun place to go with great food this is it. I've been there several times and recommended it to friends. Its a great place to take the kids and not have to worry about disturbing people. Its a great atmosphere and the shopping area around it is great also.

Great food, atmosphere, and location. My wife loves it, day or night, which means points for me. One block to the beach, so perfect for a stroll before or after.

We love the food here, but only stopped for a drink this time. We sat at the bar, and service was quick. The drinks were great, they gave us hot chips, a cheese dip, and salsa

We came here with our 2 children for my daughter's birthday while visiting Coronado. We had friendly service and great food. A friendly outdoor atmosphere to enjoy some authentic Mexican food.
