They make beautiful fresh fruit margaritas, and their food is very good, it is a busy restaurant which normally says it is good, and the prices were reasonable.

I have dined here several times before tonight and have always had an enjoyable experience. Tonight we were gathering to celebrate a friends Engagement. The evening was lovely until a group of rowdy girls on an Arabian themed Hens Night arrived! The decibels went up several notches and we could hardly hear what the person sitting next to us was...

We have been to this restaurant quite a few times now and can honestly say that the service is very attentive and the food consistently good. The maître D works his socks off to make sure that people are comfortable and being seen to. I nearly always have the prawn fajitas and they are delicious. (note to restaurant: a bigger... More

Excellent menu, huge main meals. Food is delicious. There is usually a margarita special of the day, which is one particular flavour that is discounted. The margarita glasses are smaller than your average - the jugs serve multiple people. Worth it for something different - but if you're looking for value or for a proper drink, order something different. The... More

And so many options to choose from, there was even 4 different types of sauce on the table. Maître d and waitress were friendly and helpful, Maître d even went so far... More

Was super excited to take my daughter here for tea but turned out to be kinda average. When I seen pork crackle on the menu I knew I had to have it, wish I had had the queso dip instead because the crackle was like big door stop bits of Chewy skin, half of it was still hairy! The tacos... More

Hi There, Sorry we didn't live u to your expectations! Rushing our customers is not something we normally do. I have spoken to everyone involved and discovered it was a mix up in communication between the kitchen and your server. I have also spoken to the chefs regarding the pork crackling and have been assured this wont happen again. I'm... More

Huge selection. Awesome live music even though it was a solo dude on a guitar. The Fried chicken as entree was tasty but could have been a... More
