I would recommend because I have been here before and it was much better so will give another chance.
Had a reservation and were seated in the center of the room so quite noisy and not private. Our server finally took our drink after 10-15 minutes. My skirt steak ( medium was so tough I could eat it in the taco). The rest of the family enjoyed their meals. Overall not thrilled.

This is the first negative review I've given. Classic Margarita was flavorless. Bartender was inattentive and standoffish. Waiter was nice but inept. He left the guacamole cart in front of our booth so we couldn't get out for more than 15 minutes. The food sounded delicious on menu, but was the worse Mexican food I've ever tasted. Fish was fishy, mole was too strong, tortillas were stale, corn was frozen tasting. This experience was very disappointing and expensive too. I will not return nor will I recommend to anyone.

They used to be allergen aware and serve chips from a separate fryer. They do not do that any more.

I had Carne Asada tacos. The steak was VERY TOUGH, chopped along the grain. And it was burried in bad melted cheese.

Service was poor. Had to wait 20 min to get the waiter to attend to our check.

It was a great night out with friends. The outside music was slightly too loud. But it may have been where we were sitting, perhaps near a speaker.

Everything we ordered was extremely spicy! Prices are high for a veggie burrito ($18) and the fish taco is one for $10. Nice outdoor seating area though!

As requested we were seated in the front room & 2 servers immediately welcomed us. Guacamole & chips soon came & were both fresh & yummy. One order had to be returned because a request was ignored. But it was corrected quickly. All in all an enjoyable, delicious Mexican meal in an upbeat, aesthetic setting.

This restaurant is a favorite of our daughter who lives in Narberth so we came with her when visiting from out of town and it was great from the table side guacamole preparation to the margaritas!

Great drinks! Great food! Fun place for our graduation celebration. Margaritas, sangrias were deliciously refreshing. Guacamole was well done table side, with personalized adjustments. Entrees were tasty-chicken mole' enchilada, seafood tostada, shrimp enchilada and salads were some that we tried. Although we were full, we enjoyed the warm churros brought with the check. Service was very good. Our second time here, will definitely go back.

Great value and vibe at this upscale Mexican joint. I was impressed by the variety of dishes as well as the cost. You could take your kids for a quesadilla for under $10 and also order a steak for $30.

Had a delicious meal, but made the reservation specifically for mother’s day brunch at 11:45. When we arrived they told us they cancelled brunch because they had too many reservations. Wasn’t too thrilled for tacos that early.
