It is completely my fault. I did not check TripAdvisor first. $60 for the absolute worst Mexican I have ever eaten. It was bad but edible, if you know what I mean. Bland. Everything, including the chips and dip were ala carte. While the portion...More

Terrible. Terrible! Terrible!!! We’ve been a few times on our way to Bar Harbor. It has been progressively getting worse!! The last visit was the final one. The waitress messed up our order, spilled my glass of water all over the table, and over charged...More

This place is consistently good. The food is good and the drinks are good..it is a bit pricey and a little loud when its busy but that's hardly something to complain about. The consistency is what I like.

The had some very good food here. Different, which I liked. A twist on your average mexican food. If you are looking for the standard, you may not find it here. The drinks were also very good.

We are in Maine on vacation and we read the bad reviews as of late after we were seated at Mex. I'm glad that we read them after we were locked in, because the crab enchiladas were really good, the margarita was spot on and...More

As many others have asked, how is this place still open? It is by far the worst food, worst service, worst atmosphere I have ever experienced. The salsa was a watery, tasteless mess. The taco meat would have been improved if they had used a...More

When my wife and I first came to Ellsworth, ME some 20+ years ago, we were delighted to find a Mexican restaurant in Maine. For many years, the food and the service were great but something has gone terribly wrong. We returned today, August 16,...More

Have you read tripadvisor reviews? I would say its time to close down or deliver good food and reasonable prices, too bad another mexican resturant wouldn't come to Ellsworth, you would be toast.
