We expected this to be more of a typical Mexican restaurant but found it to be a bit more upscale. We ate a mix of the Happy Hour and Dinner menu but each dish we ordered was delicious and fresh. The Small Plates were fun...More

My husband and I have eaten here many times, both lunch and dinner. The flavors of the food are always excellent. A couple of times I've thought that the food was over salted, so last night I asked for my entrée to be under salted...More

My husband and I have been here several times, and it is by far the best Mexican food in Portland with regards to fine dining and tequila options. Our favorite is afternoon happy hour from 3-6pm. Generally Sunday after 4:30pm is when bar seats open...More

You must try the variety of salsas. They are very different flavors with well done chips. Everything was fresh having just the right amount of heat. Try the pepper which was to die for. In a city with remarkable restaurants this one stands out.

The drinks are amazing. Likewise the salsa sampler is a must! The food is great, with something for everyone. We had excellent service, especially exceptional because we had a very large group.
