What a surprise! Authentic Mexican food. The beef (varkenshaas) fahita's were delicious. Came with 3 flour tortillas, salsa, sour cream, salade, grated cheese and chopped tomatoes and onions. The service was good, accurate and fast. Overall a two thumbs up!

We go here with the 2 of us on a regular basis, and the people who work there recognise us and make pleasant smalltalk without it being bothersome. You can also go there with a group as large as 12 (wich we did a few times). The food is delicious, and if you want certain food but slightly different (for... More

The owner came and greeted us and spending chatting with us pretty much during the dinner. That gives you the extra feeling of being a a family place. I had a... More

Limited menu. Nothing to write home about but a decent light meal for lunch if you must eat while you are there. Nice atmosphere outside if the weather permits. Wait staff was pleasant but very busy when we were there.
