It's Mexican

A nice option in the town. Busy buzzing atmosphere so must be booked at busy times. Friendly staff. The food is nice enough but some has a distinctly pre-prepared 'cheap' feel about it.

My son loved dancing away to... More

Went tonight with friends staff were friendly enough the food was ok but nothing to make me want to go back. I ordered the burrito which was a wrap with a bit of chilli in it then drenched in a tasteless cheese sauce. Some of the meals friends ordered looked ok, prices were average

The starter - a shared platter was ok...pretty standard potato skins / deep fried mushrooms and lots of corn chips etc . For the main I went for a vegetarian enchilada - my husband had a vegetarian... More

I've been here several times and it was ok. This time my food was poor. Overcooked calamari. And the bbq sauce was full of vinegar. Sort it please.

We have visited many times since and The Rio Bravo is a long established restaurant with a good reputation, it's always very busy when we visit, . so it's definitely booking ahead. The food is regular Mexican fayre, offering fajitas, burritos etc. of average quality. When we went we asked for a variation to the advertised meal which the staff... More

On the spec decision to eat after work.We had no booking but were accommodated easily as it was early and the restaurant was almost empty. The waitress was pleasant and service was fine.The deco looks authentic. The combo platter as a starter was of average quality, the usual combination of nachos etc. My main course of enchiladas looked okay but... More
