We went to the superb Old Town of Albufeira every day on our recent holiday and passed this Mexican restaurant so we decided to drop into here to try out a meal and what a great little find. The restaurant itself is so nice with a lovely interior with great furnishings and superb decor,spotlessly clean with plenty of seating options... More

The food here was absolutely delicious and the staff were wonderfully polite and accommodating. I had the burritos and my partner had chicken fajitas. Both were very generous in size, wonderfully cooked and tasted delicious. Will definitely try and visit again to try some more of their great menu!

We returned here for the 2nd year after enjoying it the first time we went in May 2015. The place is always busy and they do a variety of food including enchiladas and burritos as well as steaks on stones. Bucket of corona (6) two mains and nachos to share came to under €50 and the atmosphere is great. I'm... More

The waitress was very pleasant and accomodating. eating outsider was a pleasant exprerience. The food was not spectacular. It was enjoyable, nonetheless. So, peaceful and pleasant, but without a mexican zing. Resuming, I could have accomplished it at home with bagged tortilla chips, salsa from a jar and mozzarella

Mixed feelings about this Mexican restaurant, we were kept waiting even though there were tables available, the waiter's walked right past us and in so doing gave us the clear impression that we weren't welcome, especially as other couples were seated and treated in a far more welcoming manner, we watched as other diners received first class service whilst we...
