Wanted to visit this place for a while and finally did last week. I cook Mexican food a lot and find it hard to find a good Mexican restaurant, where I don't actually think to myself "I could have cooked this at home, and probably better" Staff were very friendly the restaurant is decorated lovely with nice lightening making it...

Visited this restaurant many times and every time the food is amazing, and staff are friendly and attentive. The fajitas are especially delicious and a big portion! The strawberry margaritas are the best! The only thing I would say is the puddings are a bit disappointing but once you've had a starter, main and some margaritas you don't want pudding!... More

Food was alright, but overpriced, not what I expected as I had Mexican food before, Went with some friends (11 of us) on weekday so it was quiet, so food was served quickly, Waitress that served us became a little abrupt seemed to be because some of my friends couldn't make up there minds what they wanted. not sure if...

I visited this restaurant this weekend with my friend. The food was brilliant and the atmosphere was good and very busy. The food came out well presented and in good time. We were checked on a few times in the first half of our meal but as service ended the waitresses were very lazy and stood shoving food down their... More

If you're looking for Mexican food and lots of it, this place is definitely for you. The value for money is great as the portions are very big. The filling options are plentiful and you get a complimentary mini margarita when you arrive. Couldn't fault the food or service. Just make sure to bring a large appetite!

We go to the Mexican often. The food is excellent and we often leave having eaten too much!! Only slight negative I would say is they could do with cranking the heating up a bit. Certainly won't stop us going back tho.

Great service, massive food serving but tasty! Lower lighting makes it have a moody but nice feeling to the place. Is very busy and the need to book is a must, they had to turn away at least 5 couples while we were eating! Don't forget to take the free shot and the cocktails are a must!

Have not been in a Mexican restaurant for years. Glad we chose the Mexican. We booked online and got a swift reply. On arrival were given a wee complimentary margarita and nachos. Menu was easy to follow. The starter combo was lovely and plenty for more than 2. Fajita main course was lovely and cleverly on a three tier stand.... More
