15 people arrived for dinner with one for two vouchers, were told at the point of booking that we could have two tables of 8 or one table of 15. On presentation of the vouchers we were told we couldn't use them. Explained there were 15 people about to leave and they shrugged their shoulders! So we went to the... More

We maybe a Mexican restaurant but our terms and conditions were in English!!Why would we ask you if you would like two tables of eight WHEN you called to book for a table of 15. Doesn't make sense. Upon your arrival you insisted the offer was given to all 15 where the T&C’S clearly state maximum of 8 people per... More

Instead of a traditional meal we had 4 entrees (they sounded so good) between 2 of us and we were full at the end. The servings are good sized and filling. they must have trouble selling desserts. the only downside was the price of Sangria - given the low cost of ingredients we thought it a bit pricey at around...

Love amigos, bright,fun fantastic staff very attentive.food is amazing, all cooked fresh for you. This is an ideal restaurant for couple or group of friends or family. Go for the sharing platters they are the best. Drinks are a little expensive.it is very clean.

We came across this restaurant by chance while looking for an early evening meal in Plymouth with two children (7 and 9) in tow and rapidly getting past the point of no return for food. Their conflicting demands made the diverse menu outside this venue attractive and we were so glad we went in - couldn’t have been better. Welcoming,... More

Whilst visiting Plymouth with work. My colleague & I decided to visit here & WOW are we glad we did! We decided to share Nacho's as a starter then both ordered Fajita's.. Sadly we could only manage half of the Fajita's as we were full from the Nacho's Great value for money & the staff were very welcoming & helpful

Been a few times, have had great food and there has always been a good atmosphere even on a weekday. Also asked for one of the more expensive enchiladas as part of a mid week offer and they accepted which I think is brilliant customer service that makes you want to go back again and recommend it to others

We ate as a couple early on a Sat evening soon after at 5pm - and they were open for business as advertised unlike neighboring outlets. Greeted by Proprietor although I later realised this was on one of his many fag and mobile phone breaks. On sight of a broken leg we were promised all possible assistance - sadly this... More

A group of 9 of us visited or a friends birthday at 7.30 on a Saturday. Promptly seated and drinks ordered. We all went straight to main..... A Greek platter was replaced by a Mexican one and then waited 15 mins for a replacement by which time most of us had finished. The birthday boys fajitas come with a side... More

It does what it says on the menu. Been here a few times, always accommodating and friendly. Potions good size, starters nice (had chicken wings)... Between us there was a steak burrito , double burger and a enchilada and everyone enjoyed it. Service was friendly and was on a busy night. Only downside was that for a blackcurrant and soda... More
