Quaint restaurant located on 1st floor. Has a very mexican decor. Our server was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The food was very nice. If you like margaritas, you wont be sorry if you try a sangria margaritas.

Really good food! A tad overpriced, but so is everything in Waikiki. Wish they had a better happy hour! But great location and friendly service.

Wandered in and delighted to find a pretty quiet place without a bunch of tourists. Just transplants to hawaii that live locally. The food was good, the service very good. I will return any time i am in town and get tired of the overcrowded tourist scene.

We discovered this place before... well things have changed. Prices are up and the quality is down. Not much taste to the fajitas which were expensive at $29.95 and mostly onions & green peppers very little meat. The margaritas were good but $19.00 again is expensive. Will not be going back again while in Waikiki this time.

Being from Texas I eat Mexican/Texmex on a regular basis. So I was a little reluctant to eat here. But the food was great and the service outstanding!!

We were very disappointed with this restaurant. It had potential - off the strip, cool décor but reality was different. We ordered a couple of things to share and tacos. The menu said we'd get complimentary corn ships and salsa. These never came. Our waitress asked if we would like sour cream and guacamole which we said yes to. Our... More

We were served two glasses of ice 2 sips margarita mix with 3 colours of salt on the rims. The beans were not refried beans but heinz baked beans,... More

Had the beef tacos, the meat tasted like canned beef stew. The beans were watery and the rice was dry. This was an over priced meal. I wish I went somewhere else. I will not eat here again.
