Terrible lunch

When we ordered the desert (which was part of the menu), the waiter didn't care to let us know they didn't have that desert at the moment and left us waiting for more than 15min until finally deciding to inform us of... read more

Good: Nice view of the river, fun decor Bad: Some of the slowest service in Portugal - i.e. 2.5 hours for lunch service on a Tuesday., Food is not really Mexican - it's a bad, tasteless version of Tex-Mex (FYI - pico de gallo is not salsa, it is pico de gallo & they need a refresher on what actually...

Had to wait 30minutes for the heat up my kid food. When the qeso arrived. It was just hot melted cheese like pizza cheese... no qeso!And I'm still waiting for my food almost an hour. Too pricey. Slow service. Never again!

Went to this restaurant with a group of people for lunch, even with the selection of the day menu our food took 30 min to arrive after all finished the starters ... really strange and bad service. Food is ok. view is brilliant! the value for money is ok (just that you shouldn't wait so long for them.

Went for a meal with a group of friends and I'm sure I can speak for everyone when I say none of the meals were any good. Bland, small portions, cold, overpriced. The service was equally bad in every sense. Avoid at all costs!!!!

The margaritas will make you want to come back. And if you like sweets, some desserts will be remembered in your mind. The food offers a good selection and are a good justification to drink another margarita while you wait for the dessert. If you are on a diet, simply skip the main dish and enjoy the calories from the... More

Just came to have dinner at La Siesta, by the river. Just young people serving, very polite and simple, always smilling. Fantastic. Now, the food: why do one have to invent and try to give a fancy look to what is simple? A taco, is a taco...a burrito, a burrito...theres no need to invent sauces, melted cheese on top and... More

I love mexican food and I love margaritas so it would be hard not to like this restaurant. The food is tasty and the margarita pitch is perfect for a sunny lunch. If you think the prices are a bit too much you should try it on weekdays at lunch time, the menu is fairly cheap and it will satisfy... More

Ok, the Strawberry Margarita was great. But it was supposed ot be free for "Lunes Locos" and they tried to charge us. The food was Mexicanish, but flour tortillas and a bit bland and cold. It was ok for a Mexican inspired restaurant but laughable if trying to be the real thing. They also threw the bill at us before... More
