Generally very good. Attentive service on a slow summer Friday night. Cocktails were notably good. Appetizers (a tampanade and an arancini) had great flavor. Entrees (a nightly special chicken…a sea bass…and a pasta) varied between 4-5 stars. Price points are elevated…ambience was less than expected.

About the restaurant
Our dream began in late 2014, long before we became the "Best Mexican Restaurant in San Juan Capistrano". It began inside a 17- foot food truck with the burning desire to change the way guests perceived food truck cuisine to be we have always believed that Mexican food should be MORE! More complex, modern, enjoyable and healthier for our bodies.

Excellent, innovative Mexican restaurant. Food was delicious and service was exceptional. We liked that the menu was not the usual Tex-mex fare. There was intentional use of fresh products in every dish. Shrimp ceviche was wonderful and the butter cake w/ ice cream was a great way to end the meal.
