We were in Mt Princeton with two couples who had never had good Mexican food and it was wonderful as was the service, the drinks and the atmosphere.

Given the ratings we were expecting more. The food was good and filling but nothing exceptional. The staff were friendly. The service was a little slow and it took a while for us to get our food.

This little place was amazing! The service was excellent, the food was 4 star and the presentation of our dinner was amazing! I highly recommend El Paraiso if you like Mexican food.

I ate here for lunch. I had heard a lot of good things about their Mexican Food. Unfortunately, it was not what I expected. If you like TexMex, its okay. I like traditional, real Mexican food.
