Yummy!

We went here on a lovely sunny evening, Friday to be precise. I have to rave about the mussels, they were simply the best. The bread, the sauce, all of it was wonderful. We had the combo to start with. The ribs are the best, succulent and juicy and messy. Staff were great and a real party... read more

We had a good meal but more of a western take on Mexican food than actual Mexican food. As I said nice meal but can do the same at home with basic supermarket ingredients. Enjoyable evening with very good service.

We arrived early and we're seen straight away. Great service and fantastic food. I had wraps and my partner had the tuna steak off the specials board. Really good diverse menu...will go again. We had cocktails too which were amazing.

I've been to this place about 4 times now, every time has been a delight, 3 times for an evening meal and once during lunch. It's a quirky little place, plenty of seating. It can and does get rather busy in evenings so I would definitely suggest booking in advance/on the day. The menu is limited but has a good... More

We had a lovely meal here. Well presented & very yummy. It's not the cheapest but well worth it. The service was excellent. Helpful & friendly staff. We had a lovely chilled out evening in a great atmosphere. You need to book to prevent disappointment.

We went to this Mexican restaurant today with our two granddaughters and were delighted with our meals which were served really quickly by a very attentive waitress. The portions were more than adequate and the ambient surroundings only added to a lovely day out in this wonderful resort. Certainly could recommend this venue - we shall definitely be going back!

I've visited this restaurant several times in the past, and been very pleased with both the service and food. However, on a recent visit (16/05/15) I felt there was a noticeable drop in standard. I ordered the rib-eye steak with cream and peppercorn sauce. The steak was well cooked, but the sauce (at £2.20) was way too heavy with peppercorn... More
