The fresh-fish-of-the-day burrito with rice and beans was delicious and ample for dinner for two adults. Great fresh flavor to the salsa that came with the corn chips. Ask before ordering beverages - we were stunned by $10 for a pint of draft beer.

My family had dinner here and all of us enjoyed the atmosphere, the food, and especially the drinks. We all had tacos w/sides or ala carte. All tasty and plentiful. Tried different coctails and and were great. Not too pricey. One of the better offerings in Haleiwa.

We stumbled upon Haleiwa and this restaurant for lunch on our way to Turtle Beach. Their fish enchiladas were amazing as well as the fish ceviche. We also had the Cadillac Margaritas...SO GOOD! Would recommend if you are in a larger group to make reservations ahead of time as the place was packed.

The homemade chips and salsa were good, and the dishes we tried were also tasty. The service was okay. I'd try it again.

My husbands Carne Asada tacos were too wet to pick up and eat, said he didn't care for the taste. I had fried Mahi tacos. I'm not a fish eater but I found these light and tasty. I would preferred larger flour taco shells.

I don't usually think of gourmet when I think of Mexican, but they are giving it a try. I got the tacos, which were well seasoned and there was lots of it, More does not mean better. I don't have anything negative to say about the food, but I don't have anything glowing to say either. The service was good.... More

This Mexican restaurant was good but nothing to write home about.... chips and salsa (standard fare) Had the fish tacos and carnitas burrito. Expensive. Nice ambiance. Good service. Should have tried one of the food trucks for fish tacos instead.

This was a nice little Mexican & Latin place to eat. We had the tacos with the beer battered Mahi. Delicious! The slaw and sauce made it. They make their guacamole fresh and it sooo good. They also make a very nice frozen margarita.
