Lots of rave reviews about the food: can't see what all the fuss is about. Perhaps it was the fact that we ordered veggie food but it all seemed a bit bland. That said the Nachos were nice and the staff were freindly.

Enjoyed a lovely meal with the family. Good varied menu, large portions and excellent value. A couple of us had the fjahitas. Therewas enough meat, onions apeppers for about 5 or 6 wraps, they only give you 3, but after that you're stuffed anyway. Saw someone order the ribs, looked great and enough for two to share.

From the outside it looks a tad dowdy but nothing ventured nothing gained! We were greeted by a very pleasant maître de who showed into a huge eating area with substantial outside area. She sat us away from others brought menus and left us alone to view. After 3 minutes enquirer about drinks and followed up with taking food order... More

Whilst on holiday in Devon we decided to try the Mexican. We went early taking our 2 children 1 & 3 years old. For starter I had deviled mushrooms, not too much devil in there but tasty none the less, my wife had the beef chilli nachos, now that was fantastic. Unlike other mexicans the chilli wasn't draped over the... More

This was our second visit. It is my impression that the menu has softened a bit to give a broader appeal, certaimly the placed was packed. The "heat warning" on the Chicken Mexicana was accurate. The Mexican sweet chicken not exactly sweet, but creamy. Overall very good and recommended. However, a visit to bathroom merited a minor criticism. The water... More

Ate here tonight with my husband, daughter and her partner. Very, very rushed through our meal from start to finish but food very good, apart from Mexican icecream. Staff excellent but the owner is so uptight/stressed it spoils the experience. Have had lunch here a long time again and the owner was just the same, rushed, stand offish and not... More

I went here for my birthday dinner with my son and daughter in law. We were greeted by the hostess from hell. Is she the owner, his wife or his daughter I wonder. 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
