Tex-Mex is the name of the game here, and in a very good way. Even the opening salvo of golden corn chips in a blood-red salsa of tomato, chile and coriander deserves a little cry of joy. Highlights include a chile con queso (a creamy dip of tomatoes and cheese); perfectly breaded mushrooms sitting in a pool of heady garlic sauce; and pillowy home-made enchiladas cushioning fresh swimmer crabmeat with a hefty side of pinto beans, rice and salad. Probably the best seats in the house are out along the wide, breezy verandah, while tossing back a lethally potent, chilled margarita. Vegetarian versions of just about everything on the menu are also available.
It has nice ambience. Food there was ok, slightly pricey but I guess nice ambience comes with a price tag at times.
What I really didn't like towards the night was that the restaurant closes at 11pm and at 10pm, staff were already cleaning up the bar area and also sweeping the floor. We had to check with the staff to find out if they closed at 10pm!! Even if it wasn't at the area where we were sitting, they should have waited till 11pm to do that. If I wanted to see people sweeping the floor or wiping down the table, etc, I shouldn't be paying so much for my food/drinks. The other staff weren't too friendly either except for our server, Grace. Not sure if they've been overworked or just being dissatisfied with life.

This used to be a sincere place for decent tex-mex. But they have gotten greedy and started charging for everything and anything. Que lastima.

simple food is ugly expensive here but is quite well executed. drinks are sooo pricey.sneakily they only sell poor quality 'boutique' wines so most cant spot the price gouging.bad wine at 300%+ markup is fair indication of the overall attitude here.

The food was competent enough but nothing spectacular (some portions were slightly disappointing given the prices charged and do avoid the sangria - watered down and tasted of cheap pre-mix, not sure if they knew what a sangria was supposed to taste like). Place was extremely noisy so only go there if you have no desire to make conversation with your dinner companions.

I love this place and so do a lot of other people I know in Singapore. Nice ambience too.

I found the flavors at Margarita insipid, a far cry from the food one sees in South-Western US, let alone Mexico.
