One thing I like most of this restaurant is the handsome waiter and funny manager. They served me and my friends really well. As for food, it's my first time try mexican food, and this restaurant gives me a nice start:) Thank you Martin, I surely recommand your restaurant to my friends!

The man standing at the door of this Restaurant invited us from the other side of the street to look at the menu so we went, and surprise. This guy gave me and my friend a hug "like we know each other for life" then took my hand and ask me ¿how would I like to be served? totally unreal.... More

You'd better be hungry if you're going to dine here!! The food is amazingly good and very reasonably priced. Staff very friendly.

I would not call this a restaurant... almost all tables had issues with their orders (wrong orders taken, ....) they even forget ours.... 45 minutes to get 2 burritos... NOT cool..... One of the waitress was even complaining that they were understaffed and tired as they have been working since 7am.... the manager should really spend more time in his... More

First impressions of this restaurant were nice, it looked ok and it had a good dinner offer on so we went in to eat. After placing our order and waiting approx 50 mins for our starter to still not arrive we then noticed other tables who had entered after us had eaten and some had finished and were leaving! We...

Great place and the portions where big. The food was great and the décor was pretty funky. The service and food was lovely. I would recommend this place for a quick bite to eat.

Stopped here for lunch, but unfortunately I felt it left a little bit to be desired. The food itself wasn't as vibrant as I want my Mexican, but it was definitely edible! The service was fairly good as was the price, especially considering you're eating in tourist central! My biggest complaint is that things like the guacamole didn't appear to... More

We were talked in the door by an overly enthusiastic staff member who I was slightly wary about. in hindsight we should have given this place a miss. This staff member pressured us inside after showing just a slight interest in the menu outside. This should be a sign for anyone looking for a place to eat, just walk away.... More
