    Tried this place out for the first time and I gotta say I was pretty pleased for the most part. I ordered the 3 taco dish, tasted great but just a little pricey for the size of the tacos.

    This was delicious. The flavor was immense. Had the chicken quesadillas which were great. Was packed on our visit - that and the plaques on the wall testify that I'm not alone in liking this place.

    Affordable prices, tasty Mexican food. What is better than that? Generous portions, this is one of your best cheap eats in Ottawa!

    Once your waitress has given you a table and menus, go to the cash at the back to place your order. Then pick up some salsas at the salsa bar and return to your table to wait for your meal.

    Authentic mexican in a casual cafeteria style environment. I like it but i would like some slightly hotter salsas available too!

    Don't buy the chips and salsa- get the guacamole and then you can get salsa from the salsa bar!

    Best nachos in Ottawa! Ahora is delicious in every way, and is pretty inexpensive to boot.

    One of the best places in the city for Mexican! Give the Quesadillas de Carne a try, you won't be disappointed!

    Lucky for you if you visit on a day they have Alfajores, their dulce de leche sandwich cookies. Try the Burrito de Pollo, Tortilla Soup and Sangria but skip the bland Enchilada de Pollo. Read more

    One of the few great Mexican restaurants in Ottawa. It's very casual, and has lots of spicy salsas to garnish your dish. Too spicy? Wash it down with some horchata.

    The tacos weren't that good. They were too dry... Order the enchilada instead, it was great!

    The food was very bland, not as tasty, rice was hard, no flavor in chicken, and the meat was chewy and stale. I would not recomend this place..especially because it is way over priced

    It's a little overpriced IMHO. Ottawa is plagued with expensive Mexican whereas other cities know the beauty of a dollar taco. I also find it a little bland.
