Don't expect mexican flavours

Restaurant had a great idea - Mexican food and great atmosphere but it ended up as a restaurant with nice way of serving dishes. The interior is nice and food is served on nice tableware. You don't go there for taste but for nice place and margarita - it is large and delicious. Other food is just... read more

A Tuesday night so the place was not too busy. The Mexican is based in a good location. Unfortunately, the service was poor and the staff seemed to want to stay inside near or around the bar playing on their phones and chatting amoungst themselves. We we're a party of four, the last to leave in fact as we arrived... More

We had to wait a long time before we got the menus. I ordered the soup our waitress recommended. Once I got the soup (after waiting quite long) it was not warm enough, additionally it did not have all the ingredients which were stated on the menu. The nachos we got were crumbles. My boyfriend ordered fajitas but received no... More

We have previously visited The Mexican few years ago and were very impressed with the quality of food and service, however this time everything seemed to go downhill. First of all (having booked a table in advance) nobody was interested to know... More

The food here is pretty serviceable, but it's a long way from Mexican. Went here on a Friday night with my wife; they did not have several appetizers that were listed on the menu (nachos and empanadas), but bravely soldiered on to the main meal. We got a chimichanga and a fajita, both ordered spicy. Of course, Polish food isn't... More

Service is average, prices are ok for different type of food but drinks are a lil bit higher. Good margaritas and very big! Also good burritos, nachos and fajitas.
