Really enjoyed this restaurant - we went 2 days in a row. Really great value we thought. The portions were huge! Nice for a change. Friendly and accommodating staff all round. Would highly recommend!

The restaurant is located on the main Marina road near Movenpick hotel. The staff look bored and uninterested. The food is even more boring and worse. Not much authenticity in the food or presentation. Prices are very high for a place that serves sub-standard taste...More

I actually liked the food. The closest you can get to the real thing. They actually make their own tortilla chips ! The flavors etc were just like proper Mexican food .. all of this far away from Mexico . I recommend it

The place, ambience & location are nice. There is a lot of vegetarian options & the better part is that the staff understands bit. There being a fewer nice Mexican restaurants this one must be tried in Dubai.

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
