From the warm welcome, to the lovely, happy atmosphere to the YUMMY food!!! We were so happy to have chosen this restaurant. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. The food was absolutely delicious - especially the ribs and the chimichanga!!! Reasonably priced, we loved it!!!!

Food not great but ok for large amount of people. Food came out quickly but was pretty tasteless and too hot for a lot of our party.

Well laid out restaurant, good varied menu, excellent wait staff. Food of good quality and tasty. My Wife had the Arribas Chicken and I has the Chimichanga. Both were first class, although I felt the Chimichanga didn't need the Chips. Prices mid range and worth every penny.

Lovely atmosphere!!! The food we got was also nice..... However, I asked for a side order of wedges and I was told "we have none left"...... This basically means we buy them in frozen.... For £4 for a side order I expect a restaurant to have these freshly made!!! I can't believe they were saying a chef in the kitchen... More
