Authentic Mexican cuisine and cocktails transport diners to the Mexican coast. – In Short
This sizzling Sixth Avenue spot takes its name from Mexico's open-sided beach huts. And though West Villagers may be many miles from Mexico, they do their best to create a beachy vibe as they sip margaritas under the restauraurant's thatched roof. A mural of the horizon on the back wall enhances the south-of-the-border ambiance--as does a menu brimming with tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas and tres leches.
Best Mexican in NYC!!! – This restaurant has the best mexican food in the city, the drinks are great and the ambience and service is absolutely fabulous. I cannot say the same for the sister restaurant on the East side though!!!
Food Worthy of Like Water for Chocolate – If there was a beauty contest for food, these dishes would be finalists: they're vivid, classy, and well-presented. Must have appetizer: chalupas con chorizo casero. This is NOT your Taco Bell chalupa! Most memorable drink: the funky, bloody Maryish beer and tamarind concoction. It's one of those places where you want to come again and again until you've tried everything on the menu. This IS the best (and best-priced authentic) Mexican in the area.
Excelente Mejicano!! – My boyfriend and I went there for the first time last night, even though we live right around the corner we never thought more of the place's looks... It has a nice outdoor area but for some reason it is a not very noticeable place... Well... what a surprise!! The are indoors is nice but simple, with pictures of old mexican movie legends and a wall covered with candles. The jukebox plays awesome music and the service is very god and attentive... But the food... the food is reaaaaally good, amazing fish tacos, a diverse and traditional menu with great mexican entrees that you don't easily find anywhere else in the city... Everything was fresh and delicious!! Overall it is the best mexican in the area!!
