In our search for the best fish taco we had the good fortune to have the tuna taco from here. It was truly amazing and worth seeking out.

Five of us ate dinner here last night. Two vegans, two vegetarians, and one carnivore. They accomadated all of us and the food was fantastic. Some of the best we have had since moving to Mexico 6.5 years ago.
