All my restaurant reviews come down to two things - food and service. If this is right I can forgive most other things... Firstly the food - excellent! Would highly recommend ordering many dishes and sharing - the chicken wings were the highlight for us but all the food was wonderful. Service was good for the basics as in seating... More

Been here several times. Obviously taco Tuesdays are the go to with cheap tacos and tequila. Service can be a little slow during busy times but I guess that's to be expected.

Use to be a great place. The meal is still ok, but smaller in size. The turn off is food and drink prices. Have been a regular for years with the family but will probably look elsewhere A shame really

The atmosphere is lovely. Nice garden setting at the back of the restaurant. Service not so good. They could have sold three times the amount of drinks we had if they provided service. Staff weren't friendly and didn't smile enough. Food is a bit bland, depending on what you order. Enchiladas need more sauce. I can make better enchiladas and... More

This place has a cosy, dark yet atmospheric mood, with little nooks to dine in. Service was good, food plentiful, though lacked somewhat in authentic flavour.

Portions were massive but unfortunately bland and wet. Didn't want to offend the owner so didn't complain as although tasteless it filled a much needed hole after a day of driving.

Terrific food, great prices and fun atmosphere. Very helpful staff. Inside and outside dining. Happy hour available. The only negative would be the inside tables are a bit too close together and can be very busy due to its popularity. Bookings recommended.

A Saturday evening to celebrate a birthday. We arrived & were seated in a timely manner. Placed our orders with a friendly wait staff & waited for drinks. Drinks arrived with our dip platter. Highly recommend dip platters for large groups of 6 or more. Once our mains came there was some confusion over tacos & beef vs chicken. Other... More

I have been to this restaurant several times but after last night NEVER AGAIN. Male blonde hair waiter was very sour and when we asked for the dessert menu he brings one menu out for six people. Tapas platter was disappointing. The quesadilla's were really salty and the Empanadas were tasteless. The Nacho Mountain was flat as a tack and... More
