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.

My husband and I have eaten here a few times (its our choice of restaurant when friends and family come down). For info i became addicted to enchiladas after trying them here about 4 years ago so i make them at home a lot! We booked a table on 24 January with an hours notice after a problem with another...

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

Our bill for a group of 13 came to a staggering £440 for food and a few drinks! It worked out to around £35 per person which is horrendous pricing. The chilli con carne was average and at £13 quid a dish is absolutely staggering. Overpriced beer and pretty awful atmosphere.

Went for a meal with my brother for evening dinner.... The waitress although friendly seemed shock to see us. We sat down and saw the food was expensive so we were looking forward to some great Mexican authentic food which I had been used to living with Mexican people for the past 4 years. First my drink was expensive especially... More

I was really looking forward to trying an independent Mexican restaurant, we ordered the stuffed potato skins to share as we thought normally there are a few and being priced at over £6 I thought that was a valid opinion. Well I was wrong, there were two skins with some shrivelled lettuce, £6 for what is effectively one potato is... More

I booked this restaurant earlier in the day for our group of 6 friends. Upon arrival we were greeted by very friendly and attentive staff. Ordered a variety of mains and both red and White House wine. All arrived in good time, nice wine and large portions of hot tasty food. We had a really enjoyable evening there and would... More
