Real gem, in respect of food & drinks - great selection, ambience again fab, service more than adequate but the decor looks like it has been done by a teenager to spite their parents!! I understand the need to be young, fresh & out there but this is a restaurant not a club!! Think it needs a little reining in... More

Eaten here on a number of occasions over the years as Salsa Mexicana previously and Pinche Pinche in more recent years and would recommend this place to anyone wanting a lovely meal - couples, families or groups of friends. All the food we've eaten has been great. Personal favourites are lamb enchiladas, lamb quesadillas and chicken fajitas - the lamb... More

Stumbled across this place after being unable to find another restaurant, and glad we did! Their pineapple pork is so good! Buzzing atmosphere and reasonably priced.

My husband and I visited early on a Tuesday evening, believing it would be quiet. How wrong we were! The place only had one table spare by the time we arrived at 6:45pm, so we were expecting great things! The woman who served us couldn't have been any more disinterested and unhelpful. We tried to engage her several times (obviously... More

My partner and I took advantage of a rare Friday night off (we both run bars and restaurants) and popped into pinche pinche for a bite to eat. We loved the bustling busy atmosphere and when the only 'table' left is a small ledge by the coffee machine you know that this place is in demand. It actually added to... More

We went out with the mind set of having a Mexican and came across a small Mexican restaurant which we thought would be perfect, far from! The service was horrendous, the girl who served us was rude and incompetent of carrying out good customer service. We ordered the fajitas and the nachos and neither are even worth me talking about.... More

Very noisy on a Saturday night due to a party. A bit cramped as small. Food authentic average size to small portions. Drinks expensive. £2 for a small diet coke

We visited this great little Mexican restaurant for the second time for my friend's Birthday. We liked it so much the first time that we wanted to go again. It was very busy as it was a Saturday night with other Birthday parties aswell but the staff were very pleasant and attentive. The food was really tasty and we got... More

We ate here as a group of 4 on a Friday night. Service was friendly and relatively quick. We shared to big plates of Nachos to start, one with guacamole, the other warm with melted cheese & chillies. Both delicious. I had one of the specials for a main, beef in a burrito with avocado, black beans, rice, cheese and... More

This is an old favourite of my partner and I, not living close by we are always happy to trail out to Chapel Allerton to sample the Mexican delights! On this occasion we had Beef nachos to start then prawn street tacos, both incredible, the nachos are so tasty. We then had beef quesadilla and chicken enchiladas. This is where... More
