Restaurant is clean. Well staffed. Server was attentive but not annoying. Food was excellent. Prices are moderate. Definitely want to order the papas rather than the rice. Drinks were very good as well.

Everything on the menu is highly recommended but my favourite is the clam chowder and salmon dish as entree. The ambiance is perfect for an evening out with family or friends with exceptional service. Great choice of drinks from the bar.

On a business trip this week and had a taste for Mexican. The hotel recommended this restaurant. Their recommendation was spot on...the burrito I had was excellent! The service was top shelf as well. I will be back - highly recommend!
