Thoughts:   A hidden gem in the cove, La Fiesta is new at this location. Other eateries have been located in the space in the past. I heard many positive comments from locals about the luscious food at this restaurant and was curious to try it for myself. 

Soft mariachi music and the aroma of savory Mexican food fills your senses as you walk towards the La Fiesta restaurant.

Music, a very important part of Mexican culture, is played throughout the restaurant.  It added to the atmosphere along with Mexican photos and mariachi band cutouts greeting you when you enter.

We were a group of five visiting for dinner on a Monday evening.  When we entered La Fiesta, we were greeted immediately by a host who seated us. There were only a few other diners in the restaurant.  Shortly after our late afternoon arrival, the restaurant started to fill. 

We were immediately served warm crisp tortilla chips served with fresh seasoned salsa.  Our meals arrived swiftly.

I ordered the Fajitas Tropicales consisting of zesty grilled chicken, green peppers, pineapple, onions, and tomatoes served in a half pineapple with lettuce, refried beans, guacamole, and Pico De Gallo on the side and 3 soft flour tortilla shells. (Sour Cream and cheese are normally served with it too, but I ordered mine without.)  It was absolutely wonderful.  I was not able to eat everything and they provided a box for the remainder. It was enough for a second meal.

Another in our party ordered Mushroom Quesadilla. It included a flour tortilla grilled and stuffed with cheese, mushroom, and beans. It was served with rice, lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, and tomatoes.

Chicken Fajitas for Two and Shrimp Fajitas were the choices of others in our party.  All fajitas come with the 3 tortilla shells and lettuce, refried beans, guacamole, Pico De Gallo, sour cream, and cheese on the side.

Portions were huge and the service was exemplary!

To say we were raving about the delicious food is an understatement. 

Don’t wait till Cinco de Mayo to try out this restaurant.  With so many tantalizing dishes, you will want to return over and over to try them all.  La Fiesta proves you don’t have to go south of the border for great mouthwatering Mexican food!

 Ole!
