Beautiful ambience and and equally appealing menu. We ordered tequilas, nachos and chicken fajitas. All three were very well made. In fact the food quantity was huge and one dish is more than enough for two people.

Service was good. The food was excellent and the presentation was beautiful. We got the traditional margaritas, lobster guacamole, Chile beef stuffed peppers, and the filet wrapped in bacon. Good atmosphere and even though we were here in the winter the views of the harbour were lovely. We will be back

Was there mid-December. Birthday eve, and traveling for work. Was in walking distance from the hotel. Good food . Service was just okay. Had quesadilla. Really nice tasting. However, I will say that they brought me a complimentary flan dessert with candles, caramel sauce and chocolate sauce that spelled out Happy B-day. Nice touch!

After visiting this establishment right after it opened, then again a few times over just the past two years, I can only conclude that it's still 'OK', but seems to be slipping. Like many spots on Northern Avenue in the Seaport District, it has come to rely too much on its great view, and is not paying enough attention to... More

Good food, unusual menu items which I liked. I had a special meat dish which was good. My wife liked the fish tacos.

Great service, waterfront location and simply the best Mexican I've had outside of Mexico or California. The chips were light and crisp served with three different sauces. The Tortilla soup was excellent as well as the Mole. Can say enough about the food though a bit put off by hostess looking down on me for solo dining. Go anyway!

My family and I went to go eat at Temazcel, but we screwed up on the reservation...neverthertheless, WE WILL BE BACK. This great place has a wide array of food on their menu, slightly on the high end, but from what I was hearing...well worth it. Their tequila bar was nothing less than phenomenal....their home made guacamole was equally as... More

I went here for an early dinner with my family after visiting a museum. We had appetizers of calamari and guacamole, both of which were delicious. We all opted for tacos, I had the fish, my wife the steak and my sons chose grilled chicken. Everyone enjoyed their tacos and we all agreed that we would like to go back... More
