The whole experience was stellar. The food was delicious and the drinks great. The ambiance was nice in the backyard but in the front indoor part of the restaurant the same ambiance music wasn't carried inwards so it was very quiet in there. The food delivery also got jumbled and some dishes were confused with others but that wasn't our waitresses fault as others stepped in to deliver.

Backyard patio was colourful, comfortable, very pleasant on a hot summer's evening. Food was excellent and service friendly. Server did not rush us out at all.

Fish tacos were poor quality and server did not ask why when I sent them back, back area was beautiful, but hard to enjoy with bugs and leaves falling into food.

Great (and patient) service with a fab patio and a good selection of menu options made this a no-brainer pick for a small birthday gathering with guests who are veggie and gluten-free. Our only disappointment was hearing that they were out of guacamole!

There are fake reviews posted with great ratings and the pictures of the restaurant r outdated so when u look at the pics u think u r walking into a nice place,but when u get there it’s small in dingy.. there is barely room to sit inside so u r forced to site outside.
Food had no flavor(unlike typical Mexican food) sour cream which is part of Mexican meals has to be asked for on the side n then charged for extra.. over priced.

They need a serious make over of their cooking so it actually tastes like Mexican food and not blend.

It was my first visit to this restaurant and won’t be my last.

The wait staff were so nice. The service was slow but they were very busy.

I loved their guacamole!

I totally recommend this restaurant.

One of my favourite places on St. Clair to experience traditional Mexican. I love tacos as much as the next person, but this place has that and MORE. I've eaten almost everything on the menu at this point and can say if you want heat they'll bring it. The flavours warm you inside out and the quality is always top.

What a fabulous little restaurant. The food was delicious and full of flavour. Our waitress was lovely and very attentive. The ambience was colourful, bright - beautiful patio in the back that seems pretty enclosed (from the all the plants/trees) from the outside noise all around.

Had the beef buritto - 4 very tiny pieces of beef the rest all rice. The spice was good - but needs more beef in the dish.

The service was excellent. The guacamole was super fresh and delicious. Flavourful without being spicy. I enjoyed their beer options and all the food came out at the same time. The burrito was huge! It was a little dry but otherwise very tasty.

Although the food looked amazing the taste was lacking. The tacos pollo were bland. the tacos carne were only slightly better. Someone at the table commented her chicken quesadilla was bland and so did our friend who had the fajitas.
The inside seating area is tiny and we were seated on the patio.....on Oct 21! I wish I had known that when making the reservation. It was cool out there and they do not have heaters. They should if they insist on using the patio this late in the season.

My friend and I were very excited to try this restaurant but quickly became disappointed when we order guachamole. The guachamole had at least two whole raw onions in it. I like onion, but not that much. We asked the server if this was normal, she said yes. Disappointed we decided to give the main course a try. I got chicken tinga tacos and my friend got a chicken quesadilla. The tacos came with barely any chicken and a pile of raw onions again, no seasoning. The quesadilla was blan and flavourless as well. Finally we decided to get dessert giving them
The benefit of the doubt, it's pretty hard to mess up dessert. We got chirrohs... they were hard as rocks. The only thing that was good was their piña coladas.

A rather underwhelming dining experience. Food and service were just OK. Waiter was unclear on menu options. Cozy premises, nice decor. Convenient location - metered street parking available directly along street entrance.

I went to this restaurant on a Tuesday after work without realizing it was "Taco Tuesday." This worked out in my favour because the special was 4 tacos for $8! It was excellent value and the tacos were delicious. The restaurant was fairly empty considering the special (again, good for us because the service was prompt). We tried the churros and the fried ice cream for dessert - both delicious!
