Dining al fresco Mexican style. What beautiful weather and the blossoms are out! Dad and I enjoyed a leisurely lunch in Novato on the patio of Las Guitarras Mexican Restaurant & Seafood. We did notice a large list of delicious sounding seafood items on the menu, including my favorite paella.
As we waited for our order, we listened to the gentle fall of water from the fountain, and looked around at the lovely patio setting.
And a neighboring baby looked back!
Soon our salads arrived.
Dad enjoyed a two piece combo, beef enchilada and chicken tostada along with the regular rice and beans. He said it was good, but TOO big for his appetite.
I ventured to try the Cotati combo. Chicken tamale, beef taco, beef enchilada with freshly prepared rice and refried beans. Very good, and also too much food. But they are very helpful with the take out bags for left overs. I've been here before and it has consistently attentive servers, and a very clean bathroom too! Although not gourmet, it's definitely a place to put on the map to return, especially on those spring days/summer evenings to enjoy the outdoors.
