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.

We will re-open April 2021!
