We being a family of vegetarian, & with kid who likes everything non veg, it's tough to find a good place. But this really hit the spot and all had a great time. Churros is awesome.

I personally love Mexican food because of the spices. This place has such a good spice in the food. I order spicy salsa, I got it. I order grilled chicken, I could smell the smoke from it. Brown rice cooked perfectly. I ask for extra Jalapeno, they gave me a lot of those. Overall, this place is the best!

Had a chick or chipotle burrito and also a naked burrito with all the salads, guacamole etc. it is freshly made and you can choose what you require and I can't say it was bad. You have the options of sizes as well and the price was reasonable.

Had a quick lunch here 7th Jan, outdoor dining overlooking the jetties and swimming beach. Lots to choose from, I enjoyed the three soft beef tacos as a meal...just right. If you like Mexican food, this restaurant is fine.

The staff are great, the location even better and if it's possible the food is even better than that. I have been here more times than I can count and whenever I visit Australia again this will be the first point of call for lunch/dinner! Blows all the other Mexicans in Australia to pieces!

we rocked up with the kids in tow for an "Authentic" fast food - tex-mex experience. I should preface that saying I grew up in north america where tex-mex (not to be confused with real mexican food) is one of the cheapest foods available; where paying $1 for a taco is considered getting ripped off. There is a good reason... More
