Very average experience

Not particularly authentic Mexican restaurant and tastes like they use a lot of bought in products rather than making things themselves. Flavours didn't taste particularly fresh and not particularly exciting.

We ate early evening & the restaurant was very quiet but still had a good vibe. We really liked the food & the friendly, efficient service plus the price was right! Very handy for Fraser Suites.

I have visited Pancho Villa's on a number of occasions before the last being probably over a year ago and always considered it one of my favourite Mexican Restaurants however last night was a bit of a let down. We arrived just after 6 and allocated a table. It was a good 20minutes before our order was taken. Starter took... More

First time to this restaurant, and we were pleasantly surprised. Food packed a tasty punch. Meat was really tender and a few interesting alternatives to the usual nachos and burritos.

Went for a Christmas night out. Table of eight at 6pm. Food was average, service was awful. Our starters which were Nachos, were served fairly quickly but waited nearly an hour for the mains, even then 3 of our table didn't receive theirs until the rest were almost finished. The orders were mixed up, wrong dishes, 2 had to be... More

Intended popping in to the Libertine across the road but, Libertine no more; it's now called G Town. Still, went in to see what it was like but the menu was so basic we just about turned and went to Pancho Villa. Good decision. Food was really good as was the service. Definitely going back.

Past it lots of times. Finally took the leap and decided to indulge in a sweet savoury adventure. Chicken enchiladas with chilli chocolate sauce. It was yum. Service was good and we would return.

This is a nice place to sit and watch the world go by. They serve the best Sticky toffee pudding ever! The main courses can be dissapointing though and the service is very slow.
