Authentic Mexican dishes with a west coast flair. Customers from all over Nanaimo are drawn to the harbour, to enjoy the fresh summer breezes on our licensed floating patio. Our Tasty Tacos and Fresh-Squeezed Lime Margaritas will transport you to a warm tropical vacation.
On cooler days we’ve got you covered. Heaters, blankets, and heart-warming dishes like Enchiladas and Tortilla Soup.
Closed for the season!
Looking forward to seeing you in April 2023!
