Not your everyday tex-mex restaurant. It is more of a fine dining with Mexican influences. We enjoyed to food and the service was good. The bartenders know how to mix a great drink. Will definitely eat here again if in the area.

It you want Mexican this is the place to go. It is in a great location on the Riverwalk. They have a big variety of tequila. Food was very good.

This was our second visit. Had dinner here 2 years ago and really enjoyed it. Searched out the place on a very hot day, the walk was worth it. The food was good, and the waiter was excellent.

Had a great meal! Shared fish tacos and shrimp tacos and some picadillo purses as an appetizer. Everything was fresh and tasty and the service was great. Right on the river walk and perfect for filling the belly and watching people!

Good quality food! Wide menu that fits anything anyone would want. Indoor and outdoor seating. Divine looking desserts. I wanted a lighter supper and got the spinach salad with berries and added grilled chicken with a citrus dressing. Delish! Huge margarita menu!

It has a very nice patio area with heaters for the chilly times of year. I recommend dinner on the patio after the sun goes down and all the lights come on. Beautiful!!

There are non meat items, but can't say if they use lard to fry etc. I'm sure if you call or email they will tell.
