We walked into the restaurant to see a small, charming space. Our arrival was at 6 pm and we were immediately seated by our server, Saul. (half an hour later and we would probably have had to wait for a table). Saul explained the menu and started us off with an appetizer of home made chips, guacamole and salsa fresca - very tasty. Our drinks arrived promptly as well - Margarita Bull - a margarita with Corona. Really good - but one was enough.

The chef, Estuardo Alvares, stopped by the table. He explained that all the food is made to order and that with the exception of the Burrito and the Chimichanga (TexMex) the entire menu is authentic Mexican cuisine.

We asked Saul for recommendations and ordered the Chiles Rellenos - peppers stuffed with beef, pork and veg served on corn tortillas and accompanied by rice and Pico de Gallo - and the fish tacos - perfectly cooked tilapia on soft tacos served with vegetables, Chipotle sauce, beans and rice. Both dishes were delicious!

We ended the meal with Tres Leches Cake - soft, creamy and decadent!

We definitely will visit this restaurant again!

the place is small and casual, but the food is delicious and very authentic and reasonably priced, its not cheap and not too expensive, you will be paying approx 16 to 18 per dish and its filling. I highly recommend this place. we live in North York and will drive to Aurora for the food, what does that tell you?

The corn soup Pazole is to die for. and Fish tacos cant wait to try something new.

We visited this restaurant for the first time today (for dinner) and will certainly be coming back. At first it looks like a fast food restaurant, but it's a sit-down with full service.
The staff was polite and very friendly, and the chef even came out to chat with us beforehand to see if we had any questions about the menu, and afterwards to ask how the meal was. This was a lovely extra!
My husband had chicken flautas, I had the fish tacos, and my daughter had the chicken taquitos from the kids' menu. Everyone was impressed by the quality and flavour of their meals (my daughter, who is often picky, kept saying how the food was so delicious). We capped the meal off with churros, which were the best we've had in a long, long time.
If you're looking for genuine, delicious, Mexican food that isn't take-out, or doesn't take a 2 hour chunk out of your day, this is the place for you.

This is a small resto with simple decor. We went with a larger party, but still the service was very friendly - even the chef came out at the end to make sure everything was good. The food here is pretty authentic, but very simple. The prices are reasonable. I think for a place in Aurora, this is good, but I'd rather pay a few more bucks and go to a bit more "fancy" places in Toronto.
