We went as a family, and my eldest son is vegan, so we checked in advance if this was OK, and there was no problem at all. The interior is great; fun, and well thought out. The service was excellent, with our waitress making an...More

Great atmosphere, large restaurant yet quaint. Clean, great service, food was flavourful, good portions and at times creative in a good way. Reasonably priced, wide range of Mexican dishes, good quality, overall a very good experience. Being from California I wasn't disappointed in Pepitos of...More

Visited this place twice and both times was not disappointed. Food is fresh and delicious, a good price point as the portions are quite big. Love the atmosphere too. Totally would recommend.

Booked a table of 10 and the restuarant is bigger than I thought actually and decorated with a Mexican theme. The group all had starters and most had the topped nachos which were slightly underwhelming to be honest. Some had the combo nachos and the...More

Food was amazing. We visited for a friends birthday and we're given a lovely huge sombrero hat for the birthday girl - I can't wait to go back. It's the kind of place to get food envy as every dish that came out looked so...More

I was satisfied with the outcome of our dinner. The service was quick, the portions of food were very big and all tasted very good. Although the food was spicy we did not have any trouble in digesting it! The ratio quality/price is good.

An interesting place but looked like was trying too hard to be Mexican. Still this is bearable. Service seemed to be timely and helpful. Quesadilla's for starters were a treat but the loaded skins were a bit of a miss. Onto the mains, the enchiladas...More

Tried on the recommendation of a college and what a find. I can see why it's his favourite. Very good service and excellent food. Really good value for money and highly recommended. Will definitely be returning and working through the menu.
