Absolutely incredible food. Unfortunately, the service detracted from the overall experience. We ate here for brunch and the food was amazing. I ordered the Cactus Benedict. Scrumptious. Server was very nice but inattentive. He never checked on us or warmed up our coffee once. Plus, we waited forever for our food. The Cactus Alki Beach location had stellar service when we visited so we'll probably choose that location next time.

Lovely place for the family to gather.
Great food and enough selection for the Vegan & non spicy grands. Service was gracious & prompt.

We met friends for dinner here on a weeknight. This place has great food and great service and is always busy. The menu has a wide selection of Mexican inspired food with a modern twist. My Sonoran Spa Chicken was super tender and full of flavor. The kids' casedeas were generous, and the others enjoyed their dishes too. Our server was very helpful in advising and checking on items to accommodate our kids' food allergies and worked with the kitchen to make sure everything was OK. We appreciated the attention throughout the meal, and enjoyed a rich and creamy flan for dessert.

The restaurant is located in the Madison Park neighborhood a couple miles east of downtown at the end of Madison Ave on the shore of Lake Washington. This neighborhood of small shops and restaurants is a little tight on parking, but well worth the drive.

This is a really good place for families or couples. There is outdoor seating available with heaters and a nice bar area where one can choose to eat also.
The food is truly good. It is not Sonoran style which is what I am use to, but I can tell anyone I talk to that this food is seriously good.
The tortillas are made to order, the salsa is truly good, and the Mexican hot chocolate is fabulouse!
