Because if she were an employee she would be sacked. I don't think her face cracked from the grimace whilst she was talking to us and she... More

My friends and I visited the Mexican on holiday and the food was very average. My wife had the chilli and this was very basic and the rest of the meal just didn't hit the required standard. On the positive side I would like to add that the staff who looked after us were exceptionally good but were let down... More
