I was craving mexican food but this was a big failure, not only was the food bad, so was the service and the prices. If you would like good food, I don't recommend this restaurant. I will never go back...

If you like a good Margarita this is the place! Best we have ever had. We ended up having jugs of the coconut Margarita, it was Devine. The staff were friendly, accommodating and were great to engage with. Will definitely be back when in Waikiki.

First of all, Hawaii is not known for Mexican food. I moved here 6 years ago, and still haven't found a Mexican place that compares to Texas, California, etc. The food was good, but not excellent, and the portions were large.

The food was fine but there were 4 of us and it was $200 for 1 appetizer and 2 drinks! The food and drink prices are what you would pay at a 5 star hotel! Buyer beware

Margaritas are perfect, but food is a little lack luster. Has a vibe to it that makes you want to head there for a drink- and I would encourage it- just note that the dinner options aren't so fantastic..
