Ate here twice while we were on the island for five days. Went for breakfast, and they had gotten slammed by a large group, and the servers were running ragged. Took quite a while, but we were on vacation, so. Food was good for breakfast...More

My sister and I had visited the Kapaa location in December after a poor excuse for Mexican at Moneco's. Mariachi's is authentic and just like we've experienced throughout the years visiting southern California. Decided to visit this location in June 2018 and were pleased that...More

Arrived at the end of Happy Hour on 5/19; no patio tables available. Seated inside quickly, but took a while for waitress to break free from partiers outside to take our order. Salsa and chips were standard fare, nothing special. Guacamole was average. My wife...More

We had breakfast there the other day and it was very good. You can get a Mexican breakfast or just regular bacon and eggs. Both are tasty and the service is wonderful and the prices are reasonable. Would definitely recommend.

Had dinner here. Food was good, but just that. Our waiter was excellent, but couldn't seem to get the drunks next to us to quiet down. I suppose we could have moved to a different table, or at least asked. The experience was not pleasant.
