The mexican food here was so delicious. My husband and I both enjoyed our meals and agreed it was the best Mexican food we had had in a long time. Everything was so fresh and the beef was delicious. Icy cold drinks and the American owner (I'm guessing) came around to check that everything was good. V. good service too.

We came to eat Mexican food and was very surprised about quality. The quality of raste and food is perfect, eating in the garden the service is perfect. The owner came at the rable to ask our feeling. Come back soon.

We thought that something was wrong when there was only one table eating on a Sunday night and they did not look happy.
My first beer was not cold and my wife ordered a glass of wine and was presented with a bottle.
We only ordered a starter of Nachos as we had a bad feeling. This was confirmed when a disgusting greasy plate of corn chips arrived with barely any cheese, topped with a horrible watery minced beef mixture.
The staff were useless and clueless.
I paid for my beer and left as quickly as possible.
We have eaten here on previous visits to Koh Samui and enjoyed the food.
I don’t know if the previous American owner has left, as there were none of the homemade chilli sauces that he was so proud of on the table, only generic Thai store bought bottles.
Do not eat here!

Thank you for your review you have given me a better idea of how my staff attend to not only the food preparation but also customer service when I am not in the restaurant. It is totally my fault for leaving a fairly new staff without enough supervision. Am very sorry for
the lapse in quality and service on your visit.
I have backed off on a few of the homemade sauces but you still should have gotten the Homemade Jalapeno Sauce.

We ordered a nachos for apetizer, and they were really good. Crunchy and I think they were homemade.
Then we had the fajitas with beef, and it was the best fajitas we've had. So much flavour and with the homemade salsa and it's homemade tortillas, it was outstanding!
If you're looking for a break from the thai-food. Go there! The portions is BIG.
Also check out the frozen Margarita. Had the passion fruit, ordered 2 liters.
Will go back.
