We were seated outside and waited 20 minutes and no one came by to ask us if we wanted a drink or food. Got up and left It wasn't even busy. There were about 4 tables occupied in the entire place

we sat outside in a little patio along the sidewalk, all 5 of us ordered something different. Pretty typical Mexican food, on the less spicy side. Service once we ordered was very quick.

The food was amazing and the service the same. Portions were over the top and the guacamole was the best I've tasted anywhere.

Great location, patio seating, casual and comfortable but food is marginal. The staff could have been a little friendlier but instead acted like it was an effort to accomodate us. It was 3:00 in the afternoon and the restaurant was half empty and we were...More

The restaurant is cent5rally located in tiny Santa Ynez; the staff was efficient and friendly, and the food was above-average. The outdoor balcony was great for us, as we brought our dog. And they even had a dog menu. After a day of wine-tasting the...More
