    Excellent food. Try the fish burrito, mahi mahi! The servers are a little bit rude but other than that, the place is great. In some spots of the restaurant, you can get a view of the ocean.

    I know a lot of ppl don't like olives so just a heads up that the enchiladas come with black olives (since it doesn't state that in the menu). Chz enchiladas, ckn chimi, & super quesadilla r delish!

    First impression is that this is a cougar den. $4 whiskey ginger was strong. No complaints here.

    Napales were ok - cactus was great, but beef was very fatty in spots.

    This place is okay. The food was good, ordered a skinny margarita not so great and the service was less than stellar.
