(Ottawa, Canada) • A very vibrant, kind of hidden Mexican Restaurant located right in the heart of Byward Market and it has great prices and huge plates. This place has also a self service buffet of salsa, vinaigrette and peppers. It is one of my favorite places to eat here in Ottawa and I can’t recommend it enough. The restaurant is small: you go in, go down the stairs, wait to be seated, get the menu and when you are ready, you go to the counter, place an order and pay there; they will bring it to your table after.
Ambiance: A party feel with their well decorated colored walls and tables and upbeat Latin music and people chatting. The place seems to be always busy.
Service: We didn’t have to wait long to be seated (even with no reservation) even though the place was busy.
Cleanliness: Utensils, glasses and chairs were clean, our table the waitress wiped it right before we sat down.
Food wait time: Very fast!
Food presentation: The plates looked very appetizing.
Portion: My plate and my husband’s were huge! I was so impressed with the size of both plates and was not able to finish my food all.
Taste: I ordered chicken enchiladas and it came with rice and beans. I’m definitely going back to order it again or the beef one next time. It was delicious!
Price: Affordable. Very good value for the money with their huge plates.
