Was ok

Too noisy and a bit downmarket, food was ok but there are better places to eat. The wine was reasonably priced though.

Went here for a hen do, they told us we could have all of downstairs area. Got here and was placed upstairs with everyone else. Food was okay but portion sizes were very small. Service was terrible one of our group waiting 30 minutes after rest of us. Took forever for drinks also. Left hungry

Me and my wife decided for a bite to eat here before we went to watch a Vivaldi concert at the city halls. the food was lovely and served tapas style which meant you could have a small taste of a few dishes. Although all the dishes were quite spicy it suited our tastes they werte all delicious. The staff... More

There is nothing to point to at this place. A completely fake Mexican restaurant. Everything on the menu was from the Tesco around the corner. Don't even think to enter this place unless you want to take cover in a rainy day. Just cross the street and you will find more choices there.

Was in with 4 friends and we all walked away feeling very disappointed. Every dish seemed microwaved. Now that it has changed to a tapas styled restaurant you get all your small dishes at the same time so they all should be of roughly the same temperature. My lamb tacos were cold, my cracked crab enchiladas were pipping hot, the... More

I used to love Pancho Villa's but the change of menu has really put me off. Please bring back the old menu. Change is great when it's for the better but, for me, I preferred it as it was before.

Food was tasty however the portions were ridiculously small, even the waiter said an adult would really need 2 or three main courses. At £8,95 for my fajitas the price was normal for a business lunch and to pay for three mains would price the restaurant WAY out of its price league. It was almost completely deserted with only two...

Visted pancho villa as we were in the area and fancied something different. Pretty happy alround with our service and meal Found that meal was just the right amount to fill us both and not to much. Also really enjoyed the cocktails as well. All and all pretty happy with the visit and would be coming back again

After previous meals at this restaurant we had expected the same as usual, which was a good value for money Mexican taste! However, the menu now seems to have drastically changed into that of a Spanish type tapas restaurant. The portions were incredibly small, microwaved or re heated, and lacked the Mexican imagination that the restaurant once had in abundance.... More
