I've been planning on going back to this place for a while and getting some good pictures. The decor inside makes me think that the Brady Bunch turned Mexican, dropped some hallucinogens, and were let loose with paint brushes. The walls are painted bright citrusy yellow, green, and orange. One wall has a big ocean scene with a big mermaid dead center. Unfortunately they don't have the psychedelic table cloths they used to have. Hopefully they will bring them back sometime.
Out of all the places I've been to so far this is the one place that was most thrown off by a gringo coming in. Not that they weren't welcoming; they just never seem to expect that someone like me would patronize their establishment. This was my second visit where a waitress did not know English, but I have found that even partially remembered high school Spanish can get you by pretty good in situations like these.
