We shared a salad with a grilled sausage plonked in the middle. It was okay taste-wise. This was followed by the Beef Fajitas and the Pescado a la Veracruzana (Grilled fish served with capsicums, onions, garlic, olives, capers, tomatoes and chillies.) The fish was fresh but overall, both dishes were not remarkable, and oh, we had to pay for a refill of the obligatory (small) nacho chips which all Mexican restaurants have on the dining table. Bummer! With those prices - not very cheap! - it would have been great customer service to provide nacho chips on the house.
There is an outdoor dining area but with the constant high humidity, al fresco dining - even in the evenings - has lost its appeal. We hence opted for indoor dining which was cosy. Being kind of small with a low ceiling, the sounds from the diners tended to bounce off the walls and it was quite loud at one point. It was my partner's birthday and the restaurant had kindly offered a cake when I reserved the table but I declined saying a slice will do. They however forgot about it and I had to prompt the waiter with winks and hand gestures when my partner was not looking but it all turned out well by the time the candle was blown ;-)
All in all a pleasant evening topped with the cosy atmosphere, attentive service, great Margaritas and Mexican music.
