Our local pizza restaurant and have eaten in-house a couple of times. Pizza really good. This time ordered takeaways. $44 for two small pizzas. Ridiculous. They are not that good.

Ate at Ajos on a Saturday night and were surprised to find it very quiet, but it is a little out of the way from the main shopping centre. Our pizzas were very tasty with generous toppings and a crisp thin base. I ordered a pizza that wasn't on the menu and that was no problem. The staff were friendly... More

We went there on a Saturday night in October, we looked at reviews on here and they seemed ok, except many said about lacking atmosphere. The entrees were the best part and decent, the pizza we ordered a pinky pig I think, was very bland and was missing a sauce or something to give it taste. The other pizza we... More

We had heard several reports about this restaurant and so were looking forward to trying it ourselves. We opted for the thursday night buy one pizza get one free.

Lovely food and excellent service. Of our party of six we all enjoyed our mains and desserts, there was not one of us who was disappointed. We had vouchers making this so affordable we felt bad paying such a small amount, especially given this restaurant is BYO as well, however, we will definitely be back again soon.

We had our "wine club"at Ajoz last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hosts were very accommodating for dietary needs and food was enjoyable. Would definitely recommend it for a laid back dining experience at the mount.

LOVE the pizza! Nice Italian style pizza, just more toppings than the originals :)! Always friendly staff and the food is always good. More than you would expect driving past it, worth going in and trying a great pizza!
