A very relaxing Mexican restaurant and bar, located behind the Shell petrol station opposite our building. It serves great food, usually frequent by regulars but yet to receive its due recognition. Here you can find traditional Mexican classics like Fajitas, Enchiladas and Chimmichanga, etc. The Jalapeno Poppers appetizer and their Margarita are my favourites!
