Parked across the street from this place and decided to walk in. Made my morning visit in the arts district of La Quinta most enjoyable. Entering looks like you are on a movie set. All amenities offered were well thought out in detail. Intimate (small)...More

We tried this restaurant a couple of weeks ago and found it to be really good. They even had mole which my husband ordered. Nice ambiance and friendly staff.

We love this new find- it's small but the service is lovely and the food comes quickly. They were so sweet to our toddler and sitting on the patio is perfect

Quaint restaurant for some delicious Mexican food and margaritas that were reasonably priced. I had enchiladas and my husband had the fish tacos...both were very good.
