Great decorations, but if you’re looking for semi authentic Mexican food, and “forget authentic”, you will NOT find it here. They definitely need to learn how to make salsas. Unfortunately what we had “red salsa”, it tasted like tomato sauce and not spicy at all. The waiting time to receive our food was too long (2+ hours). Their excuse, was “we had too many online orders”. When we asked when we’ll receive our food, couple of times we were ignored and finally we were told “we don’t know”.
The only thing that tasted good, was the Fresh Tableside Guacamole.
I could never take my Mexican husband to eat at this place.

Food was really good, they have a great menu with all the choices you would hope for. Easy to find location with plenty of seating. Only issue is several of the table are above the bathroom and you can smell it very badly, ruined the evening and taste of the food so we didn't stay very long.

This is a quite nice Mexican restaurant. Tasty food, nice staff and also nice latino music.

Now, in the pandemic times it is better to book in advance your table.



Enjoy

I love this place. The decorations are very cute and the music is a trip to the sunny Mexico.
The food is very good. I like to share the food on the plate with the others because the plates are quite big. You get some nachos on the house when you arrive.
The cocktails are tasty! You can choose from a wide variety of margaritas or classic cocktails.
The staff is very very nice. They are funny and careful, always there to help you.

If you like mexican food, margaritas and cool people, this is the place you've been looking for!

The service was good, very friendly waiter, the food, great, and the music makes you feel like you are not in Romania anymore. I loved it! Oh, and the little cat they take care of... so cute! Thanx, guys! ^_^
