Delicious food. This was the ole Bistro 25. It’s a beautiful, modern Mexican restaurant now and the food is exquisite. It is both tastefully prepared and tastefully presented. The margaritas were to die for and affordable. Chips were thick and crunchy. Plantains were like candy. The bartender was a pleasure! Go now and Tell ’em Barsnobs sent ya!

Great bar and interesting selection of drinks. Service, excellent. The food is a bit too ‘nouveau’ for me and at the expense of flavorful Mexican cuisine.
