Great dinner with my wife on date night. Great carne asada plate with a cheese enchilada and mole! Excellent steak fajitas as well. Great service and the homemade churros for dessert were the best!

A good experience overall: Will, the waiter, did a terrific job, handling a special request. The red mole chicken was outstanding, but the guacamole missed the mark, as it seemed scooped from a pre-made batch, mushy, not fresh, no cilantro, not served with lime, disappointing. The salsa is watery with no taste or soul; slides right off the chips. Need to reevaluate the salsa. On the west porch, half the chairs are low-slung tub chairs with no back rest. Not comfortable. The mixed salad was very good, and we would dine there again. Please fix the salsa.

Service was top notch and the food was delicious. We started with the guacamole sampler and I got the enchiladas suizas...yum! The margaritas were good too! We tried the mango, barbary fig, and black currant.

This used to be a lovely high end Mexican restaurant. It has now turned into a mediocre restaurant that caters to their extensive hotel guest population. It is no longer white table linens as shown in their photos.

Very very rushed. Clearly wanted us to leave. Should not have an 8:30 reservation available when the kitchen closes at 9. Literally shoved us out the door saying they called us a cart before we even finished our last drinks. Extremely disappointing experience

Oscar our waiter however was extremely kind and very good but overall terrible experience.

The meal was just ok. The salad was good, the carrots were good but the main entree of Chicken Enchildas was salty and sour tasting. Not as good as other restaurants.

Noted we were celebrating a birthday online and again at check in upon them asking and the server didn’t mention it at all. Food almost came out too quickly, as we weren’t done with our appetizers and drinks.

Our server was not very good...I ordered a 2nd drink and it was obviously forgotten then he remembered and this was after my meal..I said never mind when he brought it...no apology then he grabbed it up and my husband at the last min said we will keep it for a $20 top shelf margarita I would have expected a little better service

Loved the atmosphere and service and meal were outstanding. For Guacamole lovers, this is the place for you. Ordered Sangria, Tres Cerditos Guacamole, Carnitas Enchiladas, Fresh Berry dessert and coffee and with the tip, bill was just shy of $100. Would love to stop in here again, immensely enjoyed the comfort food and quieter atmosphere but at $100 a person, that's a bit steep. Well worth it for a special night out. When driving here, it's a bit harder to find. Suggest the resort add some signs to more easily find the restaurant.
