Looks like I might be the odd gringa out, being from foodie San Francisco ( Duh-sorry there Oh Canaduh-an bland-o -s). The staff is consistently on top of things, great food, clean bathrooms and roasted local organic coffee. Gallery on site has local indigenous art and the bland but harmless sun burned Ontarioan’s to contemplate why they don’t discover sunscreen. Take beans home, or enjoy the garden setting. Highlight of the local La Cruz

We went to the Octopus Garden twice during our visit to Mexico because we liked the entertainment. The food was very good and the staff were very helpful. The place also is a hostel so there are rooms in the upper level. The place doesn't look like much from the outside but once you are in, the atmosphere changes with the friendly staff and the lively music.
We will definitely return next year.

Alfredo and his crew will take good care of you, and there is live music most nights. Be sure to try the Mission Burrito on Taco Tuesday

I only gave the review a 3 because the food was not good.
The set menu for dinner only had about 3 main items.
We had Caesar salads. One with chicken, one without.
The salad dressing they had was terrible. All you could taste was a strange oil. There was no garlic in the dressing at all. Some others others in our group were not impressed also. No one said that the meal was great. No wonder some people only paid for the tickets to hear the great band.
However the music was top notch.
I would return for the entertainment value, but not for the food.
Also on a table of eight some of us were finished our meals and some of us had not received our dinners. Hence the mixed review.

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.
