This is clearly a tourist spot in the middle of Old Town, but don’t let that put you off. I love these kind of places if the food and service is great. And here it is.

Service was excellent and the food was too. Chips were fresh and the salsa was right. We had cheese enchiladas and chicken enchiladas. Both were great. I also had a couple of their fresh flour tortillas with butter. Loved it.

We would definitely go back.

This restaurant is tucked away from the main part of Old Town, almost like a little culle de sac, and had missed this section when here in 2010. It was lovely to be able to sit outside and enjoy the gardens/atmosphere of the area, especially with all the day of the dead decorations. Portions are huge, so you might want to consider sharing a plate. I had the enchiladas, one beef or pork (couldn't tell!), one chicken and one cheese. I did not like the cheese one at all and left it.
My partner had the nachos. Their tortilla chips given to us with salsa when we sat down were, without doubt, the BEST I had even had, but sadly they got extrememly soggy very quickly with the nacho dish so as to become unpalatable. Perhaps they would like to consider having a smaller nacho serving for a 'single' person, not a huge plate clearly meant to share. I think this way they would be eaten more quickly and not 'sog' up!

Staying in San Diego Old Town for a few days we came acroos Fiesta de Reyes during the day and decided we needed to visit at night when the place was in full swing.
The place is quirky with lots to see from the various shops around the sides, the stage in the centre with music and dancing and the large open-air restaurant and bar. At night the place was buzzing and the many 'Day of the Dead' decorations added to the atmosphere.
The food was not the best mexican food we have ever had but was good enough and I would recommend a visit if you are visiting Old Town.

We visited Fiesta de Reyes on October 26 after picking my wife up at the airport. Dinner was very good but we were not prepared for the decorations heralding the Day of the Dead. It’s not to be missed!
