I often go to this resturaunt with my friends. Mainly for there wide range of cocktails and friendly service. It is a place to have a laugh and with your friends and the friendly staff.

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

Have visited this resturant twice and always enjoyed the food. However, the service is terrible. The staff are rude and both times they have messed up something. A 10% service charge is added to the bill which come to a high amount due to the high food prices. Both times the service standards have not earned the charge amount and... More

Is very busy but mainly with families late afternoon the fajitas were good but very stingy with the cheese, sour cream, avocado etc. The cocktails were rubbish.

I had my birthday celebrations there last night and couldn't have asked for anything better! The service was top notch with our order being taken efficiently and quickly. Drinks were kept topped up and we didn't need to call a waiter over for anything. He always made sure we had it all already! The food came out quickly but it... More
