They have an English menu but don't really speak. I had too much alcohol in my margarita, impossible to finish it, so unfortunately I can't take advantage of the offer of the night 1 cocktail buy one for free :( they charged me 10 réais for the music but I arrive at 19h and left at 20:40 before the music...

This Mexican themed restaurant it's located in Florianópolis beira-mar avenue, near most hotels in that area. The restaurant/bar has a big appeal between youngsters serving tequila shots directly in their mouth and mariates playing songs along the saloon . The food? Average , just regular Mexican food, with a few options for vegetarians, little pricy for dinner as this is... More

Typically, Mexican food is delicious and relatively cheap. This place was something really spendy for Brazil -- like $30-35 for dinner with no booze! Making it possibly the most expensive Mexican dinner I can remember. and it really wasn't very good. Even if it had been appropriately priced, I probably would not return.

Great place for hanging out with friends, especially in birthdays. The prices are very steep, though, with two small tacos costing R$ 30,00 (US$ 8.00). And it's not that great.

It's a definitely place to visit. Really nice food and party is on. Tequila shots Brazilian style and many great margarita's. It's a good way to start the weekend at any day of the week ;)

Mexican food without spice. Fajitas were awful. Poor quality chicken, no cheese, sloppy guacamole. Just not good in general. The one good part the sangria is tasty. Charging for a Mexican band PER PERSON is also a joke.

They try. Roaming mariachis will play the usual Guantanamera, La Bamba, Besame Mucho, Cielito Lindo, Guadalajara... A funny tequila dude also roams around. He's got a Jimador to offer in each pocket, one silver, one reposado. That gets one star, since I figured they'd only have Jose Cuervo Gold.. The enchilladas (spelled on the menu with 2 l's) were simply... More

The food was not bad, but it doesn't impress me; hence the 3 stars. The decor, mariachi band, flirty tequila slinging waitresses with magazines of shot glasses kind of make a person forget that their not impressed with the food.

Really great atmosphere, lively and fun. Great option for a fun night out with friends/family, rather than romantic dinner destination. Enjoyed the food and the caipirinha's were delicious - very surprised at how nice they were. Had menu's available in English. Visited midweek when the place was about 1/3 full but could see it easily getting very busy on the... More
