Service was fine, food was a fail. One dish arrived cold, another missing a key ingredient. Our server was quick to fix these issues, but the kitchen seemed to be having an off night. We won't be returning.

Had our best meal in Mexico here! The restaurant puts a twist on traditional Mexican fare, our lunch was full of flavor and ingredients seemed wonderfully fresh. Open air dining on a veranda by a small but beautifully-tended garden. Refreshing change from a lot of...More

We were able to walk to this quaint establishment from our hotel. It is not what you would expect for a restaurant "in town," as they have done such a good job of making it have a private feel with the layout and landscaping. I...More

We had an amazing meal with equally perfect cocktails. Odd for us to hear somber Christmas music on the 30th (likely it would play till Epiphany) but once the meal arrived we forgot all about it. I wanted to return the next day and then...More
