Seriously, BEST tacos I've ever had. I had the blackened Ahi tuna tacos, and they were phenomenal. The salsa sampler they give you to start out with with divine, and our watermelon margaritas were spectacular also. Would HIGHLY recommend!

Mexican seafood platter with burrito....was excellent and excellent priced. Chips and salsa was also excellent. It's a must do when in Newport Beach. I crave it! Staff was good at what they do.
