We arrived without a booking and were accomodated (we were a group of ten) The staff were very helpful, the food excellent and the price moderate and reasonable. A better selection of wines would have been welcomed, however the housewine offered was decent.

This restaurant absolutely does not serve Mexican food. I can't think what you would call it, other than bland and tasteless, but you certainly can't call it Mexican. Totally and completely not to be recommended unless you want cheap tasteless food.

Ok, we live near London so are spoilt for international restaurants but the food is as Mexican in flavour and content as fish and chips. Deep fried blandness I'm afraid to say. Stick with local restaurants serving Sicilian food, which is infinitely more delicious.

Ate there last night with my family and 3/4 meals were inedible. Chicken was overlooked and tasted old. Husbands meal was over spiced to mask the very poor quality meat used. Complained to chef who argued the food was dried up because it was cold!...More
