We had made reservations for an 80th bday party and they gave us the entire patio. The service was awesome for 25 people and the food was really good too. Next time we're in town, we'll be back for sure.

Classic Cal-Mex food in a lovely space, decorated with murals and Mexican art. Friendly and efficient service. I had the enchiladas de mariscos which were excellent - filled with lobster and shrimp, and topped with a delicious creamy chipotle sauce. Only problem, it was served...More
