The food arrived within seconds of ordering and although did the job was lacking in the taste department. My partner and I decided to order cocktails (Caiprinha and Mojito) which tasted nothing like what they were meant to (too much sugar). When returning the Mojito we were told that the other tables LOVE their cocktails so they didn't understand what... More

I went to this restaurant with friends as the Rib Shack Restaurant across the road was fully booked. When we arrived there was one other couple in the restaurant. The cocktails could not be faulted, the food on the other hand was of a poor quality. We ordered loaded potato skins - this turned out to be a jacket potato... More

Friendly, inviting venue, if a little cramped. Broad cocktail menu is great, lots of choice and interesting combinations. I liked the 'fuzzy shark'. I fell out with tequila a few years back, so it's good there are alternatives. Food is generous and tasty. A chimichanga looks a poor relative to the ribs but it was enough for me. We spent... More

We arrived early to go to The Daylight Inn but it was over 21s so we couldn't go in so we went to Desperados and they allowed us to have a drink and sit in their outside seating. We all ordered and the food... More

Food here has always been good some meal options are nicer than others but thats probably because Mexican is my... More
