    Food was great. Service was a little slow initially but was quite good once they got to us. Restaurant is a little noisy but still pleasant.

    Sabrosa has been our favourite spot since the doors opened. Lots of gluten free options, and aside from the food being absolutely incredible every single time, it’s really the service that brings us back time and time again. Brent is an absolute delight - the best service in the city!

    Amazing food and service. Very clean and spacious. Great selection of different seating areas. By far the best Mexican food I’ve eaten in HRM, and when I actually think of it…probably anywhere. My only issue was the noise level due to the open floor concept. Again…that’s just me but this won’t deter me from returning from exploring the rest of the delicious menu. Actually drooling thinking about the food right now!

    A friend and I went there for a celebratory lunch. The margaritas were tasty, and the food quite good. We had enchiladas and the Tijuana Caesar salad....both good. It was nice to have a salad NOT saturated with over garlicky creamy dressing. Our server was excellent and the food came in a reasonable time.

    From the street corn dip to the haddock tacos- everything was so well prepared and delicious! I haven’t had a better spicy margarita outside of Mexico. Family friendly or the first stop on a night out- I couldn’t recommend it enough

    Fresh food, great service. We went for Taco Tuesday and the tacos were delicious. They are small but so stuffed so makes a good portion. Also recommend the Queso dip and guacamole. Great, friendly service as well.

    This was my second time coming here. Both times I had one dish that I found AMAZING and the other I liked but didn’t love. I loved my Ceasar salad- which was more like a vinaigrette based dressing! Very delicious! The chicken on top of the salad was fantastic! The nachos were good but probably wouldn’t get again and I didn’t love the queso dip (it was the texture for me, similar texture to hummus). Churro desert was delish! Our server Brett was awesome! Very knowledgeable and energetic! On the ball!! Atmosphere was alright. Some cool decor but a little too open for my liking. Overall food was tasty! Service great! I’d come back here again, esp for the Quesadillas and Ceasar salad :)

    We made reservations but didn't really need to. It's a large place. Very clean and the food was delicious. I'm not big into hot food and the waitress was excellent in her knowledge of items on the menu. I would definitely recommend it to others and plan on returning to try something different.

    One of our party is celiac, but the gluten free options were very limited. What was ordered ended up have deep fried tortilla chips on it, so it had to be sent back and replaced. The restaurant was very loud which made it difficult to have a conversation Our server was good, and checked back with us a couple times. The atmosphere did not have Mexican feel to it.
