3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2014

Good atmosphere but the food is very average. The calamari was spongy with no texture. Must have been soaked some sort of enzyme. The chicken for the fajitas was over cooked and smothered in a stewed chipotle sauce full of onions. Very heavy going. Not the sort of light and healthy food I expected. Very noisy especially upstairs where we... More

Hi - sorry we didn't dazzle you on your visit. I guarantee our squid is not soaked in anything! It is cut daily and quick fried in a spicy flour. It is just very tender. I apologise if the chicken appeared overcooked. We use thigh meat as it has more flavour so the flesh does look darker. As with most... More

We loved everything about this place. The atmosphere, the food and the cocktails. The staff were amazing and we had a wonderful night. The serving sizes are large

Really great Mexican food. Margarita's were awesome. Hectic, fun filled restaurant. Was extremely busy but staff kept the flow of customers moving. Advice would be to get there prior to 6pm to avoid long queues.

Excellent informal meal. Great service and authentic Mexican food at reasonable price. Large portions are standard. The place is normally crowded and does not take bookings at weekends but it is well worth the wait.

Great food. Lots of options. Good cocktails too, particularly during happy hour! A bit crowded but that's what happens when you are popular.

My wife and I popped in for the happy hour cocktails and stayed for dinner. The food was great, the tacos were just what I expected but the salad (we had prawns in it) was to die for. I recommend you try this place.

What an awesome place! Food was yum, and pretty reasonable (I think, I can't remember the bill. I blame the margaritas!). Happy hour is great, but busy. Get there early, as you must be seated to drink. But squashing up outside on the minimal seating available out there, was actually really fun! Staff were a highlight, even though they were... More
