The service was fine as was the ambiance although I found it quite cool inside. The tuna ceviche was as good as any i’ve Eaten even in Latin America however I was a little disappointed with the rest of the food we ordered. The tacos were tasty but not cooked through leaving a lot of the cheese cold and stringy. The beef was also tasty but quantity was very small. The fish taco was good. I think that in time things will improve.

Food was fabulous, tons of flavour and very unique taco choices. Unfortunately our server wasn’t aware of most of the items on the menu and left us waiting for drinks, ordering, and bills for up to 30 minutes. Will definitely be back because the food was so good though.

The food is okay. The staff are good. The ambiance is good. The value is just not there for me. Nothing was overtly wrong or bad, but the portions were very small and the prices were very high. I like to splurge on a meal every couple of weeks and this wasn’t comparable to what I would typically get for the same price. The margaritas were great but at $16 each they weren’t THAT great. For me it’s an issue of value.

A really tasty place. The tacos and cocktails are really tasty and they have a great variety of flavour combinations. Really enjoyed the beef tacos while my wife loved the scallop ceviche and the shrimp tacos. They were also really accomodating about food intolerences and the service was really quick and friendly

My BF and I planned to come here before we even got to Ottawa and we are so happy we did. We ate out a lot during our trip, which included both fine dining and dives. This restaurant was our favourite!

The house beer on tap was amazing and the food was better. Although some of the tacos were expansive we loved them. Only concern was the corn wasn’t cooked all the way through but the seasoning was great! Highly recommend the sushi tuna taco and the tempura shrimp!

Great food- tacos are flavourful and corn is delicious.Menu changes frequently. Excellent service. Only disappointment was $15 for a mediocre Marg.

Delicious, sophisticated Tacos. The corn appetizer and corn on the cob specials were remarkable... looking forward to their new menu which will be slightly expanded.

The service was exceptional, the drinks were very innovative and delicious, and the tacos amazing. I'd skip the ceviche- although good, the tacos blew my mind and I regret not trying a few more of those bad boys instead :)

Brand new expanded menu with many more delicious offerings ... service is always friendly and attentive, the bar alone is worth the visit (outstanding drinks and superb draft beer on tap) but the food is what will bring you back again and again ... the atmosphere is relaxed and all you see are happy faces all around. Great place to chill out and enjoy yourself and friends.

We loved the experience as soon as we walked in the door. Friendly, outstanding and knowledgeable service. The food was incredible and the cocktails were exceptional. We love to dine out a lot, and liken this spot to some of our fave spots in NYC and LA. We came with another couple on an early Sunday night and will be making this a regular stop. The ambiance snd all of the staff made our experience one we will be sharing with friends. Go there.

Met my 2 sons for dinner. They love tacos. Food and margaritas were absolutely delicious. I wish there was more choice for appetizers that did not include fish. Also I wish there were some desserts.

Fresh and tasty food. I went with one friend and had such a great time that I suggested it for dinner to a different friend the following night. Staff was friendly and happy to share their recommendations. Extensive (delicious) drink menu. Reasonable prices for what you get.

Had dinner with my son who loves tacos and Mexican food in general. The margaritas were excellent, I was sorry to be driving. We had the avocado salad and 3 different kinds of tacos. All of the food was very flavourful and delicious. Service was prompt and friendly. The only small complaint that I had was that it seemed a bit expensive. The tacos were $5 each which seemed fine pricewise but after 3 for me and 4 for my son, we were still somewhat hungry. That being said, we will definitely go back.
