Wow! The food, atmosphere and service were ALL extraordinary. The tomatillo sauce was the best ever with the red salsa right behind it. We had the tortilla soup, beef and chicken dishes and were all impressed. Every dish is fresh, made on site, and totally...More

Very cozy atmosphere with colorful decor and dinnerware from Mexico that you can actually purchase. Not your typical Mexican Restaurant. Small menu with regional dishes and huge flavor. I had the Filete "Asi es la Vida"--tender, delicious filet with poblano peppers, onion, garlic and melted...More

Looking for Navajo tacos and got lost--tried this restaurant on a whim--good choice. The colorful exterior is misleading, and the interior is thoughtfully decorated to exude an intimate and special experience. The waiter was knowledgeable,efficient, and sharing in the history of the establishment. I had...More

This meal was delicious and is our new favourite. Service was attentive and friendly in a fun, ambient atmosphere. But the food... especially the sauces, were above and beyond. Three sauces are put on your table for your meal. The coriander flavoured one is my...More
