Came to this place in mid-afternoon on a weekday in winter, so it was very quiet. The waiter was attentive and helpful. Due to the unusual hour (about 3:30 pm), there was staffing shift change during my meal. The transition was flawless. The 'higher-end' Mexican...More

We ate here while visiting Laguna and loved it. We had a window seat and beautiful sunset view. The drinks were very good. The enchiladas delicious. We recommend it highly.

We had Saturday lunch with our granddaughter. The food was good, had enough to bring some home. I did feel the kids meal was a little pricey $10 for a small bean and cheese burrito and then another $3 for milk.. service was good.
