Wonderful as usual. Barb and Don work hard and the food is great. Desert tonight was delish! My husband swears by the chimichangas.

Went here for a business lunch while in San Lucas. Mondays are $10Q off Mexican and the fajitas were fresh as was the pizza. Great homemade ginger beer. Only accommodates about 4 tables but kind and good food.

Small little café/bar near Hotel Bambu. We stopped by one afternoon and enjoyed a cold beer, local beer Gallo. The owner was very friendly as were her two dogs

My husband and I sought out this restaurant based on the great TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. The place isn't much to look at (we walked right past the tiny modest building at first) so we were initially a bit nervous. However, when...More
