I had dinner here with two colleagues during our trip to Cape Town. The place is nice with big screens shown Premier League football matches, music and lots of young people. I ordered a T-bone steak that was over cooked despite my request of having...More

We had a burger and Chimichanga burritos, all was very good. Also the Lindt tart desert was excellent.

went here for food. the food was alright just typical Mexican food. annoying that people can smoke in the same restaurant although is a separate area but you can still smell it. the cocktails were really good. I would rather recommend it for drinks.
