I had the nachos, which were terrific. I also had a strawberry mojito, the best I've ever had. The atmosphere was great as was the service. I'd highly recommend it.

Seul point négatif, les tables et les planchers étaient vraiment collant, limite désagréable. Sinon, super endroit, service et bouffe comme toujours !

Food is good, reasonable price, and serviced fast. Downtown restaurant, convenient to take a stroll after meal due to mall, and underground city stores are neary it.

Stated when making the reservation it was for a birthday celebration. Host, server, and manager were oblivious to the request. If OpenTable is going to ask, me if the reservation is for an event and not advise or have the restaurant follow up, why are you asking ?? Food was hot, came out quickly and was well prepared. Our server was very pleasant. Will return next time we are in town.

Nourriture impeccable, il est juste dommage de ne pas avoir eu de service à table. On nous a placé à l'étage à côté d'une grande tablée, puis on nous a oublié tout le reste du repas. Pour finir, restaurant à l'ambiance très bruyante.

We made a reservation thru open table but they didn't seem to have it in their system. Luckily (or not) they had availability. Seems like they don't bother to keep their reservation system in sync with open table.

Then we sat down and things continued to go downhill. Took the server a long time to take our order. The table next to us who came at the same time had their orders taken and their drinks arriving before we even had our server stop by our table to check on us.

My wine glass had lipstick on it, almost fresh. Seemed like they couldn't be bothered to at least rinse properly if they weren't going to wash.

Then the food was the rock bottom of the evening. My enchiladas were dry. They were parts of the recipe that were just thrown in together at the last minute instead of being cooked properly together. The rice seemed like instant rice so I wouldn't be surprised if the enchiladas were also microwaved frozen ingredients. There was barely any sauce, definitely not the typical enchiladas you'd expect. No flavors at all. Taco Bell would cook and put together their dishes much better.

My son's burrito was dry and also flavorless.

My brother's girlfriend's quesadilla was dry cold tortilla with fillings that never seemed to get an opportunity to get cooked together to make a dish. The same theme here as the enchiladas: instant ingredients thrown in together with no cooking involved. Again, even Taco Bell would at least cook their dishes.

Even if nothing else is available, I would not come to this place. I have not had fast food in over a decade but you'd be better off going to one than to this place.

Good food, but slow drink service. Waiter took forever to get our drinks and our dinner came out before we could enjoy our drinks. But overall very friendly staff, good food and great music as they have an in house DJ. Would recommend this place for casual dining.

On a reservé avec open table demandant une table terrasse. Quand on est arriver l’hotesse nous a dis que c’etait impossible de reserver sur laterrasse. Je lui ai demander quand meme de reviser ma reservation pour quel voit la note et aussi quel marque comme quoi j’etais arriver. De maniere a avoir mes points open table. Elle ne savais pas de quoi je parlais. Je lui ai demander de faire la recherche. Puis plus rien. Par la suite j’ai du aviser la serveuse. Qui elle semblais mieux comprendre. Elle etst allé aviser l’hotesse pour lui expliquer. Tres jolie la fille mais ordinaire pour la courtoisie. Une impression de regarder moi.
On a accepter une table a l’interieur finallement. La table colante tant que les menus restais colé dessus les coudes aussi. On nous a dis que c’etait propre mais que les tables etaient comme ca.quand meme etrange ??? Les margueritas etaient tres ordinaire. Queson fundidio etais bon. La salsa etait plutot canne de tomate avec de gros morceau non coupé. J’ai demander in steak ranchero sans black beans. Mon assiette arrive avec un nid de black bean sous mon steak. La serveuse m’offre de netoyer le fond de l’assiette pour y retirer les feves noir? Suite a ca j’ai tout simplement canceller le plat explicant que ce n’etait pas ce que j’avais demandé ? Facture et Ciao Atmosphere sombre et tres tres bruillant meme si le restaurant etait presque vide. Excuser moi mais faut le dire. Ca vaut pas le coup

Very good Mexican drinks to go along with authentic Mexican cuisine. Good service and good outdoor seating during summer. Tortilla chips are great to complement the drinks while waiting for our main course.

From LA on vacation and needed to get our Mexican food weekly “fix”- what a satisfyingly meal. The margaritas were great and so was the Sangria! I would kick up the heat level a notch but I am not complaining. I will tell others who visit Montreal to stop by!!

Went before the U2 concert, didn't have any expectations was just happy I could get a reservation within walking distance of the Bell Centre. Nearly lost the table because I had to run to the box office and pick up tickets and the restaurant would not seat my friends without me - this delayed us. That being said the food was really good and the drinks were amazing. I will be going back for sure the next time I'm in Montreal. Service was slow but understandable as they were super busy.

Je venais manger ici quand j’étais enfant et je disais que c’était mon restaurant préféré. Environ 10 ans plus tard j’y reviens et je confirme que c’est bel et bien mon restaurant préféré. Si vous ouvrez un jour à Québec, je serai une cliente régulière c’est sûr!
