A little disappointed that there was no other choice than bean or pork nachos and frankly they were pretty average - were not even warm and were very expensive for what you got. Cheez Wiz comes to mind. Sorry wasn’t very impressed at all. The...margaritas weren’t that great either - sorry but we won’t be back.More

We enjoyed a delicious margarita followed by a jug of sangria that went perfectly with my chicken burrito and my partners pulled pork tacos. A great atmosphere with friendly service, we’ll be back as it’s an easy walk from Niseko Village!

The perfect break from Japanese food! The 3 amigos dips with tortilla chips, chicken wings, pulled pork burrito, chicken and pork enchiladas, the Mexican Mule pork special, and the brownie were all super delicious! Great cocktails too. Super friendly staff and great service. Would recommend!

The restaurant is not within walking distance of the hotels but no problem, they will come and collect you! How good is that. Excellent Margaritas and very good food. Friendly staff and thoroughly recommended for a change from Japanese food. We have already been back.

Not even if your desperate. No real greeting on arrival with staff having meal when bar was open. Tables were sticky and dirty. Completely overpriced for what we received. Food was below average and worse than what we had expected for the venue without any...real substance, nachos were cold when delivered, no cutlery or plates for sharing. Staff were clearly untrained and drinking, chef came to bar and looked filthy. 3% surcharge when paying with card which was not written anywhere to inform customers before purchase. Complete and utter rip off and my worst experience dining not only in Japan but potentially the world.More

If you are looking for a nice place to have dinner, give the mexican mule a try. The service is friendly, the beer tastes good and the dishes are excellent. You won't be dissapointed. (One small downside: carparking is limited)
