Nachos are the best but in need of a re-vamp

I really love Mexican food, but I feel as if the the menu/ look of the restaurant is in need of a re-vamp as it has been the same for some time now. The nachos are my favourite dish and they are huge! Would definitely recommend this dish.

Great little restaurant. Called in at the weekend with my family. Good food, good price, attentive staff. What more can you ask for? If you like a bit of spice in your life. Go for the Chicken Mexicana. Scorchio!!! Will definitely call again. Keep up the good work Gemma. 👍

We have been going to The Mexican resturant for many years and have never been disappointed. Excellent service, excellent food. I would highly recommend people try this but book before as it can get busy. Try their margarita lovely and fajitas are my favourite. Looking forward to our next visit!

I loved this place the food was amazing, if your hungry this is the place as the portion sizes are good. Had a great evening the with my friends, when we ordered the wait wasn't 2 long just enough time to take in the atmosphere with a drink. Menu had a really choice of authentic Mexican food & good steaks.... More

We just love this venue for its consistent top quality food be it english or Mexican fare. Among our favourites are sweet Mexican chicken and rack of ribs, always beautifully presented with freshly cooked vegetables and salad. The service is always friendly and nothing is too much trouble - if they have it available they will go the extra mile... More

Yet another first class evening meal with amazing service and quality food on an exceptionally busy night. We both had the tuna steak with pepper sauce. An outstanding dish and plenty of it. Well done again!
