“Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The

stuff on the menu was what I cook at home on a normal night could do with some more original authentic meals instead of what is offered the staff were ok but couldn't leave the volume alone on the CD player. Last but not least for the price you get no much I wouldn't return

“Great venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

We've eaten here quite a few times and we come back because we love the authentic Mexican food along with the great atmosphere. The sharing options are brilliant ! If you're looking for 'fine dining', you should go elsewhere BUT if you're out for a lively, fun evening with friends, this is the place !!

“Never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

My partner and I visited on saturday 17th May for drinks. Living very close we often come in for a meal, but most of the time we come in for their amazing cocktails! We were a little disappointed that downstairs was closed, but sitting in the restaurant was just as pleasant. The service was great and the drinks were yummy! There was only one fault to our visit and that was the young blonde waitress made it very clear she was interested in my partner. We do love this place, so we will keep returning!
