This restaurant is so enjoyable; the atmosphere, the warm welcome, the freshly prepared guacamole, the excellent choices of wine. And then come the lobster tacos! A perfectly balanced sauce, a subtle hint of condiments, nothing overwhelming! The perfect bite!

We had absolutely wonderful food. I had delicious halibut over quinoa. The filet over an Oaxaca cheese enchilada was fabulous. Fresh guacamole made at our table was wonderful.

We were looking for authentic Mexian food and were not disappointed. The gaucamole dip was to die for; the margaritas perfect; and the food delicious. The ambiance of the dining area and the service made for a perfect evening to enjoy food, drink, and family.
