    Best happy hour on island. Margarita Monday is super dangerous as the margaritas aren’t to be taken lightly.

    The noise level gets dangerously high as the place fills up with customers. It’s hard to carry on a conversation with people sitting around your table. Some sound baffles should be placed in the restaurant to help address this. The staff is very courteous and prompt. The food is delicious.

    We decided to come here very last minute and we’re happy to find there were tables available. The restaurant had a wonderful atmosphere and great staff. For appetizers We got street tacos for taco Tuesday, and the street corn chips and dip, both were absolutely amazing and would highly recommend. For entrees my boyfriend got the Crunchwrap Extreme, which was a large portion and very tasty (I couldn’t resist taking a bite). He was nervous to try it at first cause other things sounded so good but he said it was amazing. I order the carne asada tacos and oh my god, they were to die for! The steak was some of the best steak I’ve had and I wish I ordered a second round. To finish we got the choco tacos and they were also delicious. Over all 10/10.

    We took the Westin ferry over from St John just to try this restaurant. Food was excellent - I had the veggie enchilada and my husband had the carne asade enchilada. Our server seemed to be running around quite a bit and wasn't always available when we needed her. We skipped desert there as we saw the ice cream shop next door and liked their available flavors. I will note that I was charged $8 for a virgin margarita, but we were there during happy hour and the alcoholic margarita was $8 - seems a bit pricey for basically a soda.

    We always eat at Agave in Red Hook but I’m not sure we will next year. I eat a lot of fish tacos while in St Thomas and this year the flavor was just ok, especially for the price. Our server was pleasant but literally walked away as we were asking for another drink. I never got my 2nd drink. We finally just asked for the bill.

    Had nachos with chicken, which were amazing But we are addicted to the enchiladas! We could have split either and had enough food but we wanted it all. Margaritas are super dangerous. Go down easy but super powerful;)

    Walked in and a young woman helped with our reservation, while another woman got mad at her for changing a screen to get us seated. The same woman who got angry was busing dirty dishes, putting them in a bin at the food window, then she turned around without washing her hands and served food. She kept digging her fingernails into her braids and scratching, then serving food. It was gross. The queso for our chips wasn't melted so it was hard to eat. Chicken fajitas looked to be made from dark meat, little round lumps instead of long strips of white meat. Margaritas are usually excellent, wasted our money on 2 weak pitchers. Overall, a bad experience.

    Do Not Eat Here. Way to much money for the extra small amount of food served. No chips, No Rice, No beans, nothing except 2 small tacos. Husband got the burrito. No sauce, no rice or beans either. No sides for any of the entrees. Our waitress was nice

    We were able to get seated prior to our reservation time. We ordered the pitcher of margaritas - which is an amazing deal for the amount of drinks you receive for the price! Highly recommend. Our main issue was the service. It took between 45 minutes to an hour for me to be informed that the cook did not want to make the street corn dip which is listed on their menu. That was a bit disappointing. It’s on their menu BUT the cook decided he did not want to make the item on this day. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Once we received our full order (an hour later), the food was delicious - no complaints. Communication from our waitress could’ve been better. We literally watched other servers bring our several dishes from customers who arrived after us.

    We made a reservation for 5:00 and we were seated right away when we arrive. It was not too busy yet but soon filled up. Our hostess and server were very nice and pleasant. We didn’t have to wait long for our dinner and both entre’s were excellent. I would highly recommend the carnitas enchiladas.

    All in all great experience. Food was delicious and our service was great, too. The kids got the platter (make your own tacos) and nachos. My husband and I got the steak fajitas and the pork enchiladas (3 - could only eat 2) with tomatillo sauce. Very good! Our cocktails were delicious too. One of our best meals in St Thomas.

    Total disaster! Food comes out the kitchen super slow. Service is super slow. It took them over an hour to bring my three year old a kid’s cheese quesadilla. Great atmosphere is you want to drink and hang out. The food is pretty good too. Just be prepared to settle in before you actually get to taste it. The service was at least friendly and not inconvenienced by a three year old.

    We have eaten here in past years and enjoyed the meal but not this year. The food was terrible. Salads were half the size of years past. The service was poor. No clean silverware and the noise level was deafening. Football game on, and the music was very loud. Could not hear my own family talking at our table. What’s going on with this place?

    We were in St. Thomas on vacation and wanted a casual meal on our last night. Unfortunately, the service was a bit bad. We sat for quite awhile until the manager took our order and tried to make it right. Decent Mexican food if they can get the service right. The server handling the other section in the dining room was super attentive. Unfortunately, we were one table away.
