As far as mexican food goes this place is pretty expensive. I like to call it fancy Mexican food. But the food here is mostly worth the price. My favorites are the chicken taquitos and the El gordo (this burrito is the size of a baby). They do very well with their sauces. I love to come here for lunch... More

Great food and service since they opened. We go a least once a month as a treat. Always busy because they are in demand, year round so not tourists. Have valet parking if needed.

Great food and even better sangria! My only complaint is they need bigger space. The place is always packed!

We had a friendly waiter and good service but the food was average. Salsa had a great flavor but the chicken and steak in my meal were rather tough.

We dined el fresco. Plenty of tables and seating. Ambiance was nice. Staff were prompt and attentive. Food was average to slightly above average. Apps and deserts were great. Pricing was average and they offered drink specials, which were very good. Overall, would return, but many other dining options to check out in St. Pete's.

This was our favorite place that we ate at in all of St. Pete. The service was great and everything we ate was delicious. You have to try the Duck enchiladas!

Me and my husband went to the one downtown last week and it was awesome. I raved about my taco salad all the way through dinner so when he asked me where I wanted to go for our anniversary I wanted to go back there. We figured we would try one of the other locations. Not only was the exact... More
