Lovely food.

I visited with my husband on Saturday night and we had not booked at table. They were able to fit us in as it was earlier in the evening. We had Nachos to share and they were very tasty and our main courses were excellent. The staff were very pleasant and the atmosphere of the restaurant was... read more

We went here for a family meal and all enjoyed what we ordered. The portions were all a good size and the quality was good. We shared a starter for 3 amongst 5 of us and that was fine. The service varied from ok to good, depending on who came to the table. The prices were probably 10-15% more than... More

We weren't looking for Michelin star but this was the pits. Our food came out instantly and my calamari starter had little to no flavour and were definitely frozen supermarket nibbles. Our mains were out very quickly too and also had no flavour. Our bill came to over £40, a ridiculous price for the quality of food we were served.... More

Lovely staff, friendly and efficient. The Restaurant is bright ,clean and welcoming. The food is reasonably priced and tasty , sometimes its better to order 2 starters ,than a starter and a main, due to quantity. I can recommend the combo,enjoyed the evening and the food and would recommend .

Overall, this was a very pleasant experience. We hadn't pre booked but told a time to return and the table was ready. Whilst the meals did seem a little overpriced the meals were good and filling. The place was packed and Sarah the manageress managed a very well run "ship".I would definitely return when in the area.

Went here for a meal with my boyfriend a little while ago and was disappointed, it was our second visit there and I don't know if the management had changed but it's definitely gone down hill. We had one drink each, him a beer and me a cocktail - although you could hardly call it that as it seemed to... More

My boyfriends & I love this restaurant. Fast, lush food and just what we want. I did think that the mains were a little expensive - around £14 for what we wanted - essentially Burritos/Chimmys but hey, they are good and we left full! We also normally get the huge chicken nachos to share which are LUUSSSSHHHH - there is... More

My 4 friends and I decided to book here for our Christmas Party, (we wanted something different!) We weren't disappointed! Usually Christmas Dinner's are over priced and mediocre! This was one of the least expensive dinners and the food was above average! The atmosphere was great, the decor is very Mexican and the jugs of cocktails are rather fab! They... More
