This place seemed miles from our hotel (but Santiago is a large city and taxis are great value). We fancied Mexican and that's what we got, in bucket loads. The food is OK and the service friendly. An English menu didn't prevent the order getting...More

I've been here several times for lunch, and it's just always good. Nothing extraordinary, just very enjoyable Mexican food in a nice place. Great for families. Portions are normal, prices very reasonable. You need to come on time (or make a reservation) because it's usually...More

In my experience on a Friday night... Poor selection of salsas, tasteless, poorly cooked and executed tacos. Even if Santiago has no true Mexican restaurant, this is the worst I have tried. bottom line.... Mexican inspired food. Not very good.

We've been coming since 2000, maybe even before that. They have great food and drinks, nice atmosphere, and amazing service. For some occasions there's even a mariachi.

Closest you will get to Mexico, this far south. The Tacos al carbon are definitely the best item on the menu. Wash it down with a cold margarita and you are ready for the Mariachi.

As a group, we've been coming here for years. The food is very good, and so are the drinks. Also the service is great; some times you do have to wait to be seated but it's worth it.

Food is great and service has improved a lot in the last months. The only minus point is the pre-mixed margarita. All in all very good place to have fun. If you get there too soon there might be too many families with kids.
