My wife and I had date night here and very impressed. We obviously timed it right with gong there straight after work as other people behind hind us had a 45min wait. Warm reception upon arrival and taken to seat by smiling waitress. Its a small thing but in hospo, it is so badly done by so many. Doesn't take... More

Flying burrito brothers is me and my partners favourite! Been here so many times! Food is always above and beyond, the chicken flying burrito, the fish starter, the mini tacos, and the cheesecake are amongst our must gets! Plus very good with drinks. Staff are very attentive and they always have ample staff for the amount of diners. Cannot recommend... More

We had a large group booking which was poorly handled. Not enough seats, even though it had been booked well in advance. Food was disappointing, meat was dry, not worth the price paid. Restaurant very noisy and smokey. It was hard to get service.

Had a nice enough meal here, but it was neither wow or terrible. Had to add a lot of flavour to our dishes using the varied sauces they leave on the table for you, service was good and the waitress was pleasant enough on explaining the menu. I thought it was a bit over priced for what we got.

The only good thing about this place is the staff who are very good and nice. The food was just crap. They should just use old el paso mixes at least you cant cock those up

Came here this week as it's near our motel. The food was great, we loved our taco and burrito. The meat was tender and the spice combination tasted well balanced. Definitely recommended.

While the daughter was away we took the opportunity to go out for dinner. Excellent casual dining. Great atmosphere.Great service. Got to taste the Margueritas (best when the boss is behind the bar - they're tasters, so free). Couldn't recommend this restaurant enough. My first visit and we'll definitely be going back. Great value when you use your voucher from... More
