    Beautiful setting, architecture and views. Food was a major let down. Uninspired, flat, bland, and lacking any creativity and care. Over cooked fish, tough octopus, and bland mystery mash stuffed poblanos.

The Jalapeno Basil margarita was excellent. I was very pleased to see there was a gluten free chocolate cake I had to have it for my birthday dinner dessert Yummy The Mariachi band was top notch with beautiful voices and music! Thank you so much for making my cousin and my birthday truly special!
