I went with some expectation and wasn't disappointed. Beautiful ceviche and fish tacos and a cool vibe on the terrace and perfect service. Excellent but please remember to book as this place gets busy.

We stumbled upon this place after our arrival into Cape Town. It was around the corner from our hotel in Greenpoint. Lovely little place with outdoor seating near the harbor. Friendly staff, simple and delicious menu of street style tacos. We wanted to go back, but never got the chance.

It's a popular place no doubt. Service is friendly and the food is ok but nothing spectacular and not better than your average mexican restaurant. The restaurant is very loud which can be ok if you're in that mood. For a family with wild youngsters it must be perfect. A few tables outside at the balcony is the best bet if you can get hold of them. Otherwise you're in the main dining area which is an open room and again, very very loud.

The first impression was the friendly staff. We were helped by the staff to have a good selection of great Mexican food. The wines were also excellent. The place was full the night we were there. Expect the place to be noisy with all folks chattering and laughing away.It is advisable to make reservations..The price was very reasonable. Overall a great dinner.
