A little piece if Mexico in a Devon a town. Food was wonderful, service is great and if you tell them it is for something special they will make the extra effort. the menu is extensive and varied and they will accommodate changes, just ask or advise beforehand. There also a separate room for functions away from the main area,... More

Had a great night with our family and friends, we were given the upstairs function room which was great for our rabble! The menu is great and having chosen the Grande burger I wasnt disappointed, the cheesecake was a triumph and the complimentary tequila shots were greatfully received (although I an sure we could have all done without them). Grear... More

Came here before Christmas and was looking forward to it as I'd heard some good things about the place and I really like Mexican food, but while the staff are very nice and helpful I found the food bland and disappointing. I had potato skins that hadn't been cooked that well and the main lacked any real flavour. Not sure... More

Visited on a Friday night and the restaurant was fairly quite. Food well cooked but portions are not for those with a small appetite I think I only ate half my main course.
