A close friend took us to this nice restaurant in Tiburon, a picturesque town that overlooks the Bay. It was a Sunday and the place was bustling with diners. We sat by a window overlooking the waters---- which added to the charm. Had it not been so windy, we would have sat outdoors on the patio. The food was impeccable... More

On the wharf at the Ferry Terminal. OK Mexican. Chicken enchiladas are good. I like the chips and guacamole, though it is a bit spicy and should be complemented by a refreshing drink. Try the black beans and maybe mix with some rice. Ask for extra sour cream. For dessert maybe flan? Some patio seating and Bay views.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at this location. We were staying at the Lodge and it was within walking distance and very good!

I hosted a casual reunion with some former classmates who have never been to the SF Bay Area, so it was imperative that the chips fall in the right places. Guaymas went out of their way to turn the lunch date into a party. The hostess, bless her heart, thought the available table for our big group was stuck in... More

This place used to have good food until it became corporate owned. I ordered chicken enchiladas which were just okay. My husband ordered the tamales, which were horrible! I'm sure the food would have been better if we had lots of margaritas but unfortunately, we just ordered ice tea. Our server was great, the view was fantastic. The chips and... More

The place is nice. For an european is more like a pub/restaurant mix. Mexican food is good servers are nice to you but prices a bit spicy. I did enjoy some Mexican food and will go again during my stay in Tiburon.

After a day on Angel Island we had a nice dinner and drinks. The food was good, service was good and the outdoor seating was nice on a warm summer day. However, nothing about the experience was memorable. Good, safe, tasty Mexican food.

Advertising half the price happy hour is a fraud since you have to stay inside and sitting on a high chair even if you are handicapped is not a starter. Bad mood faces completes the picture. Some of my friends ate and they said it was OK.

Great views from the deck on a clear day. We had a late lunch here and experienced great service and a good meal. Careful not to over order! The fish tortillas were delicious!
