    Great atmosphere with modern-club interior design, located along the Riverwalk. Delicious Mexican food with chips and salsa served on tall vases and popular prickly pear margaritas. Happy Hour anyone?

    Place is amazing! Sit outside on a nice day if you can. We got the "poquito de todo" with lime and goat cheese. Yum! Hubby got the tuna margarita (prickly pear) with chili powder.

    This is a somewhat upscale Tex-Mex restaurant located along the Riverwalk. My food was excellent, and service was attentive without being annoying. There is outdoor seating overlooking the Riverwalk.

    The ceviche is good, and the outdoor patio is a great setting. A little removed from the busiest part of the river walk, which I found nice.

    We went with a party of 10. Great service, and everyone enjoyed their meal. Tortilla soup was excellent, and the Tres Leches cake for dessert was the best I've ever had.

    A sister restaurant to Rosario's that maintains the food quality though I prefer Rosario's. The chicken mole was lovely and rich though!!

    The balcony was great on a September evening. Try the amazing duck crepes, jumbo prawn in garlic sauce and orange sponge cake with whipped cream!

    Great Riverwalk option for vegetarians. It's not on the menu, but they have some of the best veggie fajitas in SA + good veggie tacos. Mango-coconut-habanero sorbet is a must-have vegan dessert.

    For about $6 you can order three off menu salsas. A habanero, a jalapeño, and a chipotle. I love the first two.

    The food & service were great, but I came to propose to my girlfriend. There was a large group eating inside & it was too loud to even think of doing anything like that. Had to wait till afterwards
