Enjoy hand-shaken margaritas and an exquisite selection of cocktails, while indulging in award-winning, authentic Mexican cuisine made from the highest sustainable quality of beef, chicken, pork, seafood and produce. Dine under the stars in our main dining room, or take a seat at our dog-friendly, waterfront terrace while encompassing the breathtaking view of the Back Bay. You may even catch a glimpse of the Back Bay dolphins, sea turtles, and sea lions that frequently visit the marina.
