Staff was very nice and COVID careful. However, we probably wouldn't go back. Cocktails were not great - way too sweet. Tacos were meh and found they didn't have much meat on it and ceviche barely had any fish, too much onions.

Always friendly, efficient service. Food consistently good - most of the time. Down to earth, comfortable and a nice patio.

Cramped little Mexican place but food was tasty. Could be spicier. Should have asked for Habanero sauce.

It's a small restaurant but the server seemed overwhelmed on the Friday we were there. The taco flavours are creative but not quite as amazing as they ought to be. The margaritas are good.

We LOVE that this restaurant is gluten free. Being able to eat out without the fear of cross contamination is so important. The staff are always courteous and helpful. The fish tacos are a family favourite!

I had the pear cider and it was SO good. It's served warm which was perfect for the chilly day! The main thing that I really love about this place is that everything is gluten free! EVERYTHING! They do have some beers that are not, but all the food and the cocktails are gf and it's like a dream to be able to order anything from the whole menu :3
Our server Kajsa was lovely, so friendly and chatty, very prompt and happy to accommodate.

The food was great and service was excellent. Some of the menu items (tacos) just needed something for that extra flavour.

Our group tried every taco on the menu because they all sounded so great. And they were all outstanding. 100% gluten free which was perfect for a celiac family member.
Bringing a friend back next week!!

If my review is qualified, it’s mainly because I think the chef is doing himself a disservice by making much of the food so hot that the flavours of the good ingredients are masked. So I would recommend your restaurant, but I would warn friends about what to choose if they want to taste their food, not just have to drink liquids to put out the fire.

Stopped in for a quick bite and a drink early on a Saturday evening and was glad we'd made a reservation as the place was already starting to fill up. Wait staff and kitchen staff were welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Really tasty tacos, served quickly. Highly recommend!

Charming little place with food to die for. It's tapas style, but the servings are big. Be careful not to over order. With drinks, meal for two came in less than $100, so good value.

Not an issue for me, but a small dining area made for close company with table beside us. If you love Mexican, this should be part of your rotation in Toronto.

Food is always outstanding at this restaurant. My only criticism is the type of music played. Not everyone wants to listen to "mumble rap". If you want to play that genre of music, please play hip hop from the 90s when it was respectable.

Wonderful! Completely gluten-free kitchen (aside from bottles of beer if you are so inclined). I felt safe eating here as a Celiac. It has only a few tables in the winter months as their outdoor patio is closed, so it is worth making a reservation. The menu is small but wonderful. I love going here!
