We were pretty hungry and looked at other reviews on this restaurant and found them to be great. We booked and went along and were not disappointed. Big meals and the taste was amazing. A good and maybe a bad thing is we had to bring our own booze. This was all great as the staff took it to the... More

My boyfriend and I went to dinner here on Saturday and the personalised service was nothing short of amazing. The owner and staff are very friendly and the food was fresh and extremely delicious- one of the best mexican meals i have eaten. We will be back and would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

My husband and I come here often. The owner is super friendly and extremely accommodating. The food is yummy and generous. I order lots of different things off his menu and have never gone wrong. Shredded beef is delicious and tender. You cannot go wrong!

We had an enjoyable meal but is fairly bland when served, not as spicy as other Mexican cafe's. Just so long as you order chilli sauce as a side to suit your palate you will have a very enjoyable,casual dining experience. It is very popular. Many more diners than other Mexicans in the area and that is always a good... More

We walked the marine parade and looked at all the restaurants. This one was busy and plate size was good. It is BYO but the local bottle shop is a very short walk away. We cleaned our plates and were not hungry for desert. Looking forward to bringing the kids when next on holidays down here.

This restaurant has been there for almost thirty years and it continues to be very popular offering basically the same fare! I love their jungle chicken, garlic prawns and jungle juice. They offer BYO which makes them very good value and a great place to go when in Ool. Highly recommended

Great selection of Mexican-style food. Polite, friendly staff. BYO all alcohol. Trust me, if you are not completely famished when you visit, share a plate - the meals are huge, delicious and value for money.

Looked for Mexican on our first night and we found the "Jungle" and we were not disappointed. we were made to feel so welcome and the food and service was fantastic. It was a really busy Saturday Night and the service was not too long at all. Plenty of food options and combination meals that were exceptional value. We were... More
