The food is reliably good, with mendicant flavors but not the traditional casual Mexican dishes. The eggplant roulade appetizer was delicious and the pan-fried shrimp over wilted spinach was also terrific. It’s a nice intimate place for a dinner with friends.

We found this place as we wanted to make a reservation for Cinco de Mayo. Thanks to OpenTable, we now have a go-to spot for high-end Mexican food. This is not your typical chips/salsa and churros for dessert restaurant (I like those too). This is an upscale, small restaurant with probably 12-13 tables. Prices are not cheap, but I think they reflect the high quality of the food. Our server Alberto was great as well. We ordered 2 appetizers. One was a pepper with blue crab stuffed inside. It was great. My wife got the short rib empanadas. Those were also very good. For the main course, I got the Snapper special and my wife got octopus over a salad. We both really liked the entrees. The coconut delight for dessert was great, but all of the items looked good to me. One item to note, these guys don't serve liquor but do offer margaritas made with a special wine. My wife said it was very good. Since we don't live close, we're glad to have the option to reserve a table via OpenTable so we don't have to drive 45 min to wait in line. As long as this restaurant continues to accept advanced reservations, we will continue to be customers!

When I pulled up outside I was a bit concerned because the exterior looked a little sketchy. Inside is a beautiful restaurant, with a comforting feeling. Food and service were exceptional. Our server, Robert, made some great recommendations and the kitchen delivered an outstanding meal. Highly recommend this dining experience.

Wonderful welcome, ambiance, service, wine,...and the food! The way they prepare their fish is the best I’ve ever seen/tasted in the U.S.A. Everyone is very friendly, welcoming, and helpful, including the extraordinary Chef Eduardo - whom was an absolute delight to meet.

When we heard that this is the most authentic and best Mexican restaurant in the U.S.A., those people were not wrong! We will absolutely go there again and will tell everyone to visit!

Our server, Eduardo, was very nice and attentive. The food, however, was underwhelming. The beef tenderloin was under seasoned and chewy, the cheese filling inside wasn’t heated thoroughly, some parts were cold and some were hot, not sure if it was supposed to be that way but I didn’t enjoy it and sent it back. I replaced it with the lamb chops, I ordered them medium well but they were served well done. The lamb chops were also under seasoned. My boyfriend ordered the chicken and he said it was good. The sangria was good. Mediocre food but excellent service, will not return.

A destination for every visit to South Florida
The food is unique and consistently good
The value of the wine list and the bottle that is on the table is great
The margarita made with wine from the agave plant is fantastic
He has made it to 25 years in business
Hope this restaurant is here for the next 25 years

An interesting gourmet "Mexican" menu minus the typical fajitas, tacos, chips and salsa. Would highly recommend for those seeking something a lot more special than refried beans. The only drawback is that there is beer and wine only with no "Hard" liquor. Definitely worth a try.

This is truly different restaurant in southern Florida - Highly talented French trained chef - who cooks Mexican. The dishes can be sublime at best! Great at even the normal level! We travel the world and eat at a lot places - this is a true gem ! We get here whenever we are near the Ft. Lauderdale airport. The kitchen is even skilled enough to handle the vegan in our group - which again, points to the skill in that kitchen.
