Great in every aspect! The tasty fish ceviche is some of the best I’ve ever had, with plenty of fish, citrus and spice. The crab and a shrimp enchilada is filling, tasty and overall great deal. Make sure to reserve a table.

Perhaps the Sangria says it all. We have been going to this restaurant for almost 40 years and my wife always says that they have the best Sangria she has ever tasted. She has tried it in many restaurants including restaurants in Mexico and Spain,...More

The location of this restaurant is perfect - right off of Newbury street but tucked away from the noise and bustle. Service was fast, which was to be expected for a 5:15 reservation. Drinks were decent - nothing too special. The food was yummy -...More

This is a hidden spot in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood (literally off the alley). Delicious authentic style Mexican favorites like enchiladas verde, mole, and guacamole don't disappoint. Nice private dining area accommodates groups of about 15 and is a great location for a business or...More

Went there with friends. We tried 2 varieties of margarita, one of which was their "special". Both were probably the worst I have ever tasted. I ordered a puerco and though the sauce was very nice, my pork was extremely dry :(. It is really...More
