My husband and I went there for dinner, the decor is cool, ok for drinks. However the food was disgusting. I order veggie burrito and came a hot-pocket of pre packet corn, peas and bell pepper seasoned with GMS. The tortilla wrapped was dry and terrible. The flavor was bad! Super salty, not fresh vegetables. My husband ribs was the... More

A local classic. Usually you can't go wrong if you choose to go. However today it was just average. The pasteiszinho were really good. But the nachos were just okay, not spicy at all and it was cold. Service was fast and efficient. I ordered two craft beers, one portion of pasteis and one water. There was also the 7.00... More

maybe my expectation to the restaurant was too high ..? it was the worst taco Ive ever had. i had cheese, chicked and beef nacho with around 21 reais (after happy-hour discount). only cheese taco was good! but nacho that my friend had was good.

Price is outrageous compared with the portions that seem more an appetizer. Besides, a noise band is always bothering you and make all conversation impossible. Run a way.

Incredible Nachos and the beef tacos are great too. Didn't enjoy the chicken tacos much so would not recommend them. The establishment is great though.....

We stumbled across this place after our first preference for mexican food was closed. Firstly they had asked for a cover charge which as 15 reals to a restaurant. That was strange enough in itself but thought we would pursue it. Perhaps we should have taken the hint of how poor the quality of food was going to be by... More

Unlike other restaurants and bars in Curitiba, which have been well managed, with good service and food, this place is awful. We walked in asking for a table of six for dinner. After charging us the cover charge, they told us they didn't have a table, as they were fully booked, even though 75% of tables were available. After we... More

Great ambiente, great parte of the city (Avenida Batel), good (though not very authentic) food, good for people watching. Recommended.

Had business dinner with colleagues - Mexican restaurants are hard to find in Brazil (in my experience over the past several months). They had a Mariachi band which amped up the atmosphere. We were there on a THU night, and it was packed. Really good food.
