Lovely establishment that celebrates and elevates Mexican cuisine. We were grateful they were open on a Sunday evening (seemed the exception in Cape Town!)

Drinkswise, they made a killer Paloma, but it’s all about the food. We loved the “on arrival” totopos (the salsa verde - divine!), mole hacienda with its complex flavours, Oaxaca adobo rice and tuna tacos.

The staff is super friendly and the ambience pleasant and relaxed.

Ate here after seeing the positive reviews & experienced good service throughout.
The food however was in my opinion sub standard, bland & not authentic.
Served with fine dining pinache & an eye for presentation, I can see what the restaurant is trying to do, take Mexican food to a higher level, but without spice, texture & seasoning, it fell well short.
On the taste, I would mark the experience as poor & sadly would not return or recommend.

The food is sublime. Such a clever mix of flavours to produce a devine set of dishes. We have been in Cape Town a month and tried lots of different restaurants and this is by far out favourite so far. Loved it ;))
