Nice friendly staff with good music and atmosphere. When we went for a family celebration , the waiter came out and made the guacamole fresh at the table. Good authentic Mexican food.

Not sure what you mean ... they have a bar and usually busy - mid week is probably quiet ... to me it's more of a restaurant with bar to have apps and a few drinks - not so much to hang out !!
