Short walk or cab from Paradise Village, great service and great food. Happy to substitute ingredients like mushroom for sausage in the fish tacos. Boys loved the fried ice cream. Get there early. Fajita Republic next door was also good but busier. Nice outdoor decor...More

We just needed a break from the hotel food. This restaurant was recommended. A quick cab ride, good service alfresco. The food was decent and the price was wonderful. Margaritas were tasty!
