Staff was very nice. Food was average. Reminded me of our typical mexican restaurants at home. Basically same types of foods. Will accommodate vegan but they don't have specifically vegan options.

Our hotel was right across the street. I have dairy and gluten allergies and the restaurant was quick to accomodate. The server was friendly. I had the tacos de pollo. They were delicious. I would happily eat here again.
