The interior decoration may lead you to believe you’ve walked into a Mexican cantina overlooking the Pacific. The coral-coloured walls are covered with an eclectic collection of Mexican memorabilia and family photographs. The tables are covered with brightly coloured cloths, and there are little sombrero lights hanging above them. It is a bright and welcoming place. The kitchen is in the back and opens to the restaurant. It may not be the prettiest kitchen in the world, but you’ll have to make up your own mind about that.
Service is quick and friendly, and the menu is extensive. I have lunch here every time I’m in town, although they are also open for breakfast and dinner. There is a different lunch special every day: flautas, chimichangas, quesadillas, tacos, enchiladas, and burritos, ranging in price from C$9 to $10. Dinner specials range from C$13 to $18. Menu selections run from salads to nachos, burritos, seafood, and a variety of platters, samplers, and combination plates. There is even a low-carb menu. I tried a beef burrito, which was served with rice and refried beans, and my wife tried a vegetarian quesadilla. Both were excellent, and as I said, you may not be aware of the spices until you’re finished eating, and then you discover that you are really, really happy with what you’ve had. It all goes well with a selection of Mexican beers or a wide variety of specialty drinks, such as margaritas.
Over several visits, I have always walked out completely happy with the experience. I recommend that you try it if you’re in town.

The inside is all decorated with things they have brought with them from Puerto Vallarta and they have a gift shop downstairs. Dinner for 4 usually runs 75-80$ CDN. The service is fairly quick, and the food is to die for. In the summer they have a patio out front on King Street, but if you're there in the winter, it might be a good idea to make reservations.
