We had supper here on a night with live music and the whole place was packed. It was a fun night and the place has a very positive atmosphere. Our food was good (garlic shrimp and ribs) but it took a very long time to arrive (obviously because it was so busy and the kitchen was maxed out, the servers apologized a number of times for the delay which was appreciated). Our meal and drinks were very reasonably priced. We would come back again.

The quality of the food and service at OG has greatly improved this season. Wednesday night's all-you-can-eat-ribs has become very popular, so you may want to reserve a table with Alfredo, the friendly general manager. Along with the meaty pork ribs, you will be served an outstanding cole slaw (like that served in the best ribs joints up North) and small, but tasty baked potatoes. Mi amigos and I prefer the upstairs seating, under a palapa, where you can feel like you are eating in a treehouse. The courtyard seating downstairs, especially after sundown, can be very charming as well. And, make sure that you attend a concert performance at OG. Some of the most talented musicians and group acts in Mexico perform under the stars at OG. The shows I've seen there linger in my memory and I return yearly to see my favorite performers. La Cruz is richer for the presence of Octopus's Garden!

Went there for supper and drinks. Great menu and really good food at a reasonable price and good service. Every weds. Is all you can eat ribs and they mean it, before you are finished the first rack another shows up until you tell them to stop. These ribs are some of the best I have had falling off the bone juicy and tender with a great sauce. Do not miss ribs night

We stopped at this open air garden cafe for lunch today. Quiet, charming atmosphere. They offer a good variety of Mexican fair. We really enjoyed the burritos and cold cervezas. Looking forward to returning one evening when they have live entertainment to try the dinner menu and enjoy the atmosphere and music.

We attended a concert from Duende which was a great performance. The Octopus Garden is a great venue for such a concert, good seating arrangement, beautiful decor and a truly authentic Mexican atmosphere! The food was also delicious, staff were attentive and very friendly ... a well run business.
