Tried this place as takeout after reading about it in Time Out NY. Waited approximatley 20 minutes and the food was cold after a 4 block walk home. Had to heat it before eating. I ordered the tamales for lunch the next day. The order included 1 each of pork, chicken and tilapia. Frankly, they were a big disappointment - very dry and too dense. Also, very small. Ordered the chili rellanos vegetarian which was fresh and light. The veggies were cut too large for my taste which means that you need less to fill the pepper. The sauce was light but needed some punch - too bland. Also ordered a side of rice and black bean puree. Again, underseasoned. This is not americanized Mexican. It is upscale, sophisticated and fresh. The atmosphere is also lovely. I just wish the portions were a bit larger and the prices a bit smaller.

1. If you are party of less than 6, be ready to wait for a table. The place was packed last night (12/30). No room at the bar, so went across the street to the wine bar, which is really nice too. 2. The tacos are very good, however, they are too small for 3 for $9. I can get really good authentic tacos for same price, regular size. I would have 2 tacos, regular size, charge $7 dollars. 3. The best deal I thought was the beer $5 dollars, but if you get it with micheladas for $1 dollar extra, which is so tasty. I got a Negro Mo with micheladas. 4. The main plates are excellent, pretty decently priced. I the stuffed poblano pepper with pork, apples, peaches walnuts and pomagranate, very good and my date had the veggy poblano. 5. The cocanut flan was very light and pleasing, the espresso, a double was good, but again, for 4.50, I believe it should be 3.50 and 2.50 for single. The waitress was very good, though she forgot I ordered the espresso even though she put a little spoon there on the table. . .anyway, she was cute (grey cords) and very friendly and fast.

Okay, the food was good and the atmosphere was really nice as well. BUT I have a few complaints: 1) Drinks were ridiculously weak. 2) The tacos are appetizer portions (very small!) 3) The mole sauce was way too thick and sweet 4) Chips and salsa for $4.00. That's $4.00 more than ANY mexican joint should charge. But again the food was good over all. I'll go back but just maybe avoid the $9.00 virgin margaritas.

Best thing to hit Williamsburg in quite a while! Excellent food and atmosphere. Great pricing to match. Now that the Margaritas are flowing, be sure to get in there for a taste of Authentic Mexico!!

... that the best place to go for Mexican food is in Williamsburg. I have never had guacamole that tasted so good and chunky and our dinner was fantastic. Our group shared all the tacos and then we tried the enchiladas, chile nogado and fish. All well prepared and beautifully presented. The Pacifico's are great, but I can't wait for the margarita's in the fall.

Being from Mexico City I have to say I am really impressed with the food at this restaurant. It tastes exactly like the food that you can get at any "Fonda" in D.F.
