Food was average- not wow, but not terrible either. Location is nice but there are better restaurants nearby

Top spot, good vibes however the staff were abrupt and uninterested in assisting with anything. Ordered 4 dishes on two transactions and there was a 20 minute delay between the meals, no apologies given. Additionally my chilli con carne burrito had two whole bay leaves in it which I appreciate are needed for flavor but should be removed prior to... More

Great place for lunchtime, it is situated right in the middle of South Bank near the beach and other restaurants. Friendly staff and nice menu. Nice fresh food. Sells alcohol if you feel like a cold beer

My son decided he wanted to eat Mexican, had a look at other Restaurants in the area and this appealed to us. Meals were a good size and tasty and the staff were friendly. Will dine here again when in Brisbane.

We went for a stroll in South Bank after our twilight bridge climb adventure and ended up grabbing an outside table here. The night markets were on, music was playing and there was such a nice vibe to the evening. We shared a large plate of nachos, he had a beer and I had a lovely strawberry margarita. The toppings...

Went to a couple of place around Southbank but we all hated the really over the top music they had playing!!! How can you talk and enjoy the company of your guests with that awful noise in the background? Sooo, we decided on Cactus Republic. The meals were amazing, we sat outside and enjoyed the casual feel about the place.... More

We came back here for dinner after having looked at the place whilst walking around. It is an odd mix between restaurant and fast food. You have to order and pre-pay at the bar (which is a pain if you want a few drinks), and when we went to get another drink a queue of people had just arrived which... More

I have been to this place many times. The food quality is good and the service is relatively fast. I like this restaurant's enchiladas.

Great little find in the middle of a very touristy area. Surprised at the flavour of the dishes. Chose the beef ribs which with fall off the bone meat and what are the best polenta chips I have ever tasted. Ordered a side garden salad which was a meal in itself. Great Mexican beer to wash it all down.
