It is just a lovely place. You wouldn’t think that since it’s located in a strip mall but all the shops are occupied so it’s certainly a safe area. The food was delicious! On Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays they have live music and our first experience was on a Tuesday night!! It’s our new favorite for great Mexican food!

One of the worst restaurant meals I've ever had. Watery, canned-tasting salsa (burning hot) and ceviche. The red snapper "special" was swimming in a gloppy tomato and green olive sauce that was so salty we couldn't eat it. Scraped that off and found 2 pieces of fish that tasted frozen and thawed. Flavor was so fishy and "off" that we didn't dare eat it.
Boyfriend's sautéed shrimp were chewy and had a strong iodine taste— Gulf Brown shrimp frozen too late, maybe?
When waiter saw the uneaten food, he asked if the fish was OK. I said, "Just too salty for me, I'm afraid."
"Oh, too salty," he replied. That was it. We didn't see any point in complaining, even for a $60 tab. How cooks can unload this stuff without even tasting it is beyond me. Can't believe they'd put this on the table in front of anyone, let along for what (at least in Tucson) are pretty stiff prices.

Food was okay... the music was too loud for any kind of conversation.
