We loved the food here when we last went about 5 months ago. My family of 4 went again recently and the food was so dead. The quesadilla was smelling, wasn't warm ( the menu said it was grilled to become warm) and there weren't...More

Food was fine, nothing special. What wasn't great though was kindly asking for the door to be closed as unfortunately summer is over and by 10pm it's chilly, we were told no due to smoke from the kitchen. Waited another half hour, we're now sat...More

Food was lovely and we loved the table side guacamole they made. It was however slightly overpriced. Reminds me of a slightly classier and more expensive Mexican version of Nando's.

Food was adequate but definitely not worth the £196 we paid. In terms of value, an absolute rip off. I would avoid this place. Try El Pastor or Breddos Tacos if you want a good Mexican.

Really enjoyed the visit to this Mexican style restaurant, with very authentic food and drink, not badly priced considering it's location. Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere with good quality food. Only dislike was the bill presentation, no subtotal and included a 12.5% tip, i...More
