While advertising itself as "Mexican" in some locations, this restaurant also features a few items from varous other Latin American countries.

While fairly modern, the interior of the facility is well decorated and has quite a lot of woodwook in it. Take a look at the area by the fireplace in particular if you get a chance to visit this restaurant.

Most of the restaurant is on the second floor, where an open window overlooks Lake Union and provides a great view of the southern tip of the lake. Thankfully, busy Westlake really doesn't produce enough noise to filter into the restaurant above. Being on the second level really makes a difference in traffic noise. There is a lower level area but I would hesitate to the open porch there due to the traffic.

I expected the prices here it be slightly higher than they are, due to the modern nature of the restaurant and the location in the severely popular South Lake Union area.

The current information from the restaurant states that happy hour prices are available from 4pm to 6pm and 10pm to 1am every day.

Favorite Dish: They have a pretty good Vegetarian Quesadilla for $8 at lunch, and it is a very popular location for the happy hour specials.

The drinks menu at the table features a number of them that cost more than the food.

The Guacamole Appetizer for $8 was also quite good, and my lunchtime friends told me that the Asada Torta and Asada Taco (both $12) were quite good as well.
