Booked a table for 5 people on Saturday night and had to wait one hour for the food. Food was overpriced! Took 15mins before our order was taken. Not worth a visit!

Poor service and terrible food! Only good thing is the 2 for 1 meal. But other than that it's rubbish! Will never come back here again.

We went on a group dinner and I ordered the chicken fajitas. It was all onion and not much chicken and was very bland. Order jalapenos if you want to spice up your food! Condiments were non existent. Side salad was boring and bland with no spice. Margarita were ok. Service was ok as well.

We love Mexican, so decided to try this place whilst staying in Coolangatta. I rang for a table, asked to come at 5.30pm as it was heavily booked. So we turned up, place was getting busy, good reception from staff. Furnishings and décor good. The menu was comprehensive the usual Mexican fare, burritos, nachos, enchiladas etc. I chose the pork... More

Worst Mexican food I have ever eaten and expensive!!! Tasteless and boring. Kids wouldn't even eat it as it was horrible. Very poor service waited for ages to order and upon leaving the restaurant 30 mins later I feel sick. Very disappointing as restaurant was busy

We decided to stop in for one drink, but the service was excellent. The bar man was just the right person for two inexperienced Tequila drinkers. Make sure you get a half flask of Margarittas, strawberry was our favourite for around $20 we ended up with 3 drinks each.

We stopped in after a terrible dinner experience at another restaurant. Mark and Ryan welcomed us made us comfortable right away. The tacos were large and really tasty. We also had the trio of dips, and I would be hard pressed to say which was the best. The chill con carne was amazing! The tequila selection was quite large, but... More

Hubby and I do not like mexican food as it is always so heavy and feels like a brick in our stomachs. But the rest of our family wanted to go so along we went. We have not been to Aztec since it moved to here from the other side of the road. What a great improvement, really nice decor... More

The bar man was very knowledgable about the drinks/liqueurs/wines and made a delicious margarita. The wait staff were efficient on a very busy Tuesday night and the food was really quite good. We had entrees and nachos which we really enjoyed. The only negative was there should have been more corn chips with the large nachos we shared, but minor... More

Went there for dinner with a small group of colleagues. I love Sangria but had one sip of theirs and wouldn't touch it. I had a chicken burrito and it was bland slop. Others in the group had margaritas which looked like they were from a margarita mix, not made fresh.
