I visited this restaurant with my family. The fajitas were delicious and the guacamole was sublime. The service, however, did not match the quality of the food, as we had to ask multiple times for things like plates and cutlery. All in all, though, an enjoyable experience.

One of the better if not best midrange Mexican restaurant in Dubai. Relaxed vibe with lots of good food options. Can't go wrong with their guacamole. Their fish taco is also worth a try (although it used to be better when they had it grilled instead of fried).

After living in NYC and being spoiled by Mexican food, I have to say that this is the most over rated place I have been to in Dubai. Such a hype for no reason. First off the place is expensive for not being in a hotel, second the food quality isn't good. We started off with guacamole and it was... More

The food was good, the guacamole freshly made in front of us, the margarita was also home made, and we were able to control how much sugar they put in, basically all the food his... More

Been going there since it opened in 2002 and the food has always been good. We went back after a longtime again and the food is the same but the prices have shot up. Overall they have good food and the owner is usually around which is nice to see in Dubai. The place has its regulars........

We've been there in a business group, twice. The experience is much better appreciated, when orders are diversified, so as to savor several dishes at once. The guacamole dip is mixed in front of you, and the fajita is served sizzling! The place is conveniently located between Shaikh Zayed Road and Jumeirah Road, with easy access from both. A good...

...usually, however last week I had my first not so great experience. The server was quite rude, and he looked bored. The food was not up to the usual standard I felt, which was very unusual as I have been going there since it opened. Avoid the ceaser salad, there was little to no dressing.

As far as I know this is one of if not the first Mexican in dubai, it's a safe bet and more relaxed than other of the same kind. Food is good, portions could be better and service is efficient. Parking could be an issue...
