This restaurant creates a full experience when you’re in their presence. From each dish that has divine presentation, to the theatrics for some like the Shrimp in Mezcal, our meal here was perfect. I worked in the restaurant industry in the past and can say without a doubt this was one of the best dining experience I’ve ever had the pleasure of coming across.

The food was amazing with flavors that were perfectly paired and represent a true Mexican pallet (I have family from Mexico so I know the flavor components). My partner and I were in bliss with the food and the cocktails. Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. We ordered:
- the shrimp Cooked in Mezcal (perfectly cooked shrimp with lovely citrus flavoring)
- scallop ceviche (tender, fresh and delicious)
- grilled Octopus ( perfect texture, with lovely flavoring)
- Award winning stuffed Poblano covered in walnut sauce (this dish was mind blowing! The sweet and savory factor was to die for!!!)
- Churros with 5 dipping sauces (fantastic presentation and delicious treat.

The servers we had helping us (Victor, Emilio, and Brayan) were absolute pleasures to be helped by. They worked as a team and anticipated our needs as the dinner unfolded. They were warm and welcoming, joyful and clearly love what they do. We even had a bar tender come to our table and make us a spectacular cocktail right in front of us (I think his name was Pete..? From Denmark.)

We loved our experience here so much that we vowed to go back before we leave our vacation and return home. Thank you for the absolutely spectacular experience!
