Part of the Fairmont Princess resort. This is a good Mexican with great tacos and empanadas. Lovely short run last night and a fun place. Great service

I had dinners two evenings, both times the meat ( Carnitas and Steak Chipotle salad) contained excessive salt. Chips also contain lots of salt. The salad also comes with salty dressing. Price is on the high side. Service is good.

We went for dinner and loved it! Our waiter, Julio, was very knowledgeable and gave great recommendations! The food was amazing, some of the best Mexican food we have ever had. If you go you must try the churros for dessert! Highly recommend.

This is a very nice restaurant with good food and some even better drinks. You must plan ahead over busy dates to be guaranteed a seat. The staff was very friendly, especially the person who was helping the server at the bar. I think she was a hostess, but she was very pleasant and outgoing.

We came here with our family after seeing the Christmas lights at the resort. The one saving grace was that the $35 entrance fee/parking fee was covered because we ate here. Our dinner was overall very good, but definitely very expensive for what it was. Margaritas were good. Service was good. Food was good. Nothing was excellent. My fajitas were... More

My wife and I are at the restaurant right now and are about to leave. After encountering rude and pretentious hostesses, we had to sit at a table which had not been yet cleared off from the previous customers.

Had a very nice meal. You must enjoy Mexican food and we do. All was well prepared and not overly pricey. If you spend $75 you avoid the $55 charge for Valet parking to enjoy the Christmas lights. Great show with ice skating, an ice slide a Christmas carousel and a light show with a Christmas tree timed to music... More

We wanted to be part of the Fairmont Princess holiday festival and they outdid themselves with decorations and activities, mainly for families with smaller children.
