We really enjoyed the food. Delicious dessert. Wine very expensive so ask before you order a drink. Like every place in Miami, tip included in tab.

This restaurant's food was just delicious. It felt like we were eating home cooked food. The staff was wonderful and friendly (Jonathan and Natalia). The food was so good we went there twice during our vacation.

Good for people who doesn't know about real mexican food and its taste. The place looks good, but its a shame the food is just regular.
