Simple but great Texmex

We really enjoyed a spontaneous visit week night dinner here recently. Service was great and the waiter was helpful and friendly. Whilst not bustling or crazy busy, there were enough other patrons to create a vibe. We had starters of chilli poppers and beef ribs and both were excellent. The mains... read more

This restaurant no longer exhists, unless it has moved. Been replaced by a BBQ place. Looked around for a long time until someone finally pointed it out. Waste of time.

The food was not Mexican food. The service was very bad. The tables has been to high. It is very uncomfortable to sit there. The waitress have been very impolite and existing on there tip. I wouldn't go there any more.

I wanted a quiet, small place to grab a bite to eat on my first night in Cape Town. This place, with its funky decor, seemed okay. I had a traditional margarita; it came in a plastic glass with one ice cube, but was properly made with salt on the rim and decent tequila. I ordered a chicken burrito, thinking... More

Very authentic place to visit. But precooked meals are bad. We liked the atmosphere, but not the food. Aircon is useless. The cost is affordable.

Being from Texas we're always looking for good Mexican food. We finally found it! Although it isn't authentic, it is good. The wait staff is friendly and very attentive! We sat outside and had no one interrupt our meal. We will definitely come back!!

A good choice of vegetarian dishes to be enjoyed in a nice friendly relaxing atmosphere. The staff were particularly helpful in helping choose dishes.

I came here a few nights ago and really enjoyed this place. Usually there is always that "one thing" but I can honestly say nothing negative. The food is tasty, huge portions (they offer a takeaway service if you can't finish), amazing margaritas and the staff were really friendly, happy and helpful. It's quite refreshing because sometimes you can tell... More
