Ate outside twice in one week, The food is delicious but band. Ask for their medium hot sauce, really spices up an otherwise unmemorable meal. Service was poor but typical Australian service. Reasonable location to scope out the backpackers in downtown Cairns. Good food but not great, expensive to me but average for Australia. The Sangria was great and they... More

Having read some of the reviews before I started this, I now find myself slightly bemused to say that we actually had a very nice evening here! Restaurant was not over busy but it was early. Staff were very friendly, especially the manager, and we had good service all evening. The margaritas were very tasty (and I had enough of... More

Very disappointing food, lacking flavour and heat. Ok service. We tried a jug of sangria with our meal which we doubted contained any alcohol.

Everytime I am in Cairns I order here and when I was a local we would go at least once a fortnight. The staff have brilliant customer service and the kitchen always gets the meals out fast. My favourite is the enchaladas. They do a brilliant cocktail too!

So there isn't a big Mexican influence in Cairns, and as long as you remember that, you can keep your expectations in check. Our food was ok but arrived lukewarm, the service was adequate, and the cost was not outrageous. If you're dying for Mexican, it's the best we found...also the only Mexican restaurant we tried. Stick to Australian and... More

The food is very good and tasty. The menu is varied, and has a selection of mexican meals. They have all the right mexican beers also. great value for money even without the early dining discount.

To be honest, my Chilli Verde was quite good both in quality and quantity, but my friends orders a bit over priced and taste were average. Service was good, but would come back only when it's on special. Still, my order Chilli Verde was very tasty :)
