“Love this place. Atmosphere is amazing.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

This place isn't somewhere to go for a romantic meal for two! You'll be overwhelmed by people doing blood worm shots and drinking cocktails! Went as a group of 12 and had an ace night, food was tasty and generously portioned. Cocktails were big for their prices also and the service was fast paced an friendly even though they were full to the brim.

Only criticism is I asked for no chilli in my pasta meal and they left it in. But this may of just been down to the fact they were very busy.

Service was excellent, even while very busy. Food was lovely and the margaritas superb. Portion sizes were very generous.

“Family meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Booked last minute for Friday night, with our 3 kids, for them to experience a Texmex restaurant for the first time. Had a great evening. Good food, huge portions (too much for us). Nice atmosphere. They could do with some more help at table as the evening progressed, as they became very busy, but was not a major issue and we all enjoyed our meals.

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We went for this meal as we we were looking for something that little bit different. We definitely found that at Jingles!
The food was exquisite and we were both encouraged to try something new from the extensive menu of world foods.
I had the Creole Chicken and my partner had the Carribean Pasta and we were both blown away by how beautifully cooked they were.
Everything was reasonably priced too! We would thoroughly recommend Jingles!
