We stopped by here recently for dinner. The food was OK: the enchiladas were somewhat dry, and a little bland, but the "gringo chicken" was pretty good. Overall I would say this is pretty average Mexican food. The staff were very friendly though, and drinks...More

We dropped by when we were in the area looking for a place to eat. Wouldn't say it's the best Mexican food around, but it's tasty enough and the atmosphere is quite nice.

It is difficult to find a consistently good restaurant in Ottawa, but luckily this venue is an exception. The food is always good with decent portions. Great drink menu, and very friendly staff. Would highly recommend

I was craving Mexican and this place seemed to fit the bill. I was seated in quiet part of the restaurant which is what I wanted. I'd been traveling all day and was exhausted. Setting was nice with themed music playing in the background. Service...More

This place wasn't bad but not great either. The nachos were small portions and so overdone they pretty much had to be chiseled off the plate but the meat on top was amazing! The enchiladas are good but small and the staff was more interested...More
