Found Jingles by chance, and so glad that we did, the staff were brilliant and helpful. Having been told at another restaurant that we would have to wait at least 30 minutes for food, although it was not busy, we decided too look elsewhere. On entering Jingles it was very busy with tables of 12 and 18 already seated, but... More

Visited here last Saturday night with my wife and we were both very impressed! The food was great, the drinks were great - my wife raved about the Sangria! And the staff were very enthusiastic and helpful! I had the Ribs and Wings which fell off the bone and were accompanied by a mountain of delicious curly fries, you won't... More

Torquay on a Thursday night in November is not really the place to be. The place is dead! We went to a bar (Which I won't name) and to say over priced... They charged £9.50 for an average glass of wine... We went onto Jingles, a Mexican restaurant. We arrived to be greeted by all the staff working that night,... More

Thought we'd give Jingles a go having noticed it walking past (very hard to miss) and we were very pleasantly surprised. I opted for the Cajun chicken which tasted fantastic and was beautifully tender (I am very fussy!). The cocktails were great too. The only negative I could find was that the portions were absolutely huge and I could barely... More

Was a disappointing visit. The nachos we had to start were okay. The main courses we had were almost inedible. The non-alcoholic cocktail my wife had was crushed ice, water and not a lot else. The food took an age to be delivered. The service staff were nice and polite, but the standard of food was shocking. We didn't stay... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We are sorry that you did not like your main course, but we would have been more than happy to correct or replace what it was that you found so wrong at the time. We would normally have preferred to be given the chance to replace your choices with other... More

A lovely meal. Highlights for me were poppers and Santa Fe Lamb. Service was also excellent and a member of staff called a taxi for us afterwards as it was raining. Thank you.

We visited this restaurant after seeing a show in the Princess Theatre. We had to eat early in order to catch the train home. We were able to eat just after 6pm. There were quite a few young families eating then and the restaurant seemed to cater for them without any problems. The staff were really friendly and obliging and... More

Came here thinking the food might be good, but it was excellent. Really authentic, really tasty, big portions. The chilli poppers, guacamole dip and enchilada was extremely good. I wish I'd had a spare stomach.

We chose this restaurant largely based on trip advisor reviews but our expectations in terms of the food quality were not met. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant itself is attractive with decor in keeping with the Mexican theme, whilst not being too over the top. There was an excellent choice of dishes on the menu including Mexican,... More
