This place is a Mexican restaurant with a good menu. The service is so so and drinks too. About the food they have different options but some of the prices are like crazy. The atmosphere is good. Nice place.

We have eaten at this restaurant three times now (twice in one week on our last stay in Cabo) and it never disappoints! The food is phenomenal! They also make the corn tortillas fresh for you right there in the restaurant. Highly recommended!!

The grilled fish tacos were excellent and the chicken and shrimp clay pot was a unique experience. The food was very good. Very close and walkable from the main square.
