Our Mexican cousins took us here for drinks, appetizers and the Mariachi music. The restaurant is a huge, open patio with trees and fountains. Our older waiter was not very friendly at first, but finally warmed up to us at the end of our stay....More

Great restaurant for authentic Mexican food. Large outdoor ambiance with Mariachi bands adding to the experience.

This is a spacious outdoor restaurant close to the centre of Tlaquepaque. The service is rather impersonal and the food average. The prices are slightly cheaper than similar restaurants in the area.
