I read about this place in my guidebook and, loving homestyle Mexican, thought it would be a good place to try out because anything remotely Mexican is pretty much non-existent in Melbourne (and don't let any con try to convince you otherwise!).

Location was nice, service was quick and friendly, but I found the food quite ordinary and particularly salty. I ordered the enchiladas rojas and the sauce was not flavoursome; just a salty red sauce. The portion was generous, but I was looking for flavour, not to stuff myself full!

An OK place but I wouldn't seek it out again if I visit Kauai again.

The food is reasonably priced and it is, by far, the Mexican food around. It was all fresh, nicely presented, the staff was great and the place, inside and out was CLEAN. Which we found out, was not the norm on Kauai.
