“Nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012 via mobile

I went to Mi Sombrero in June last year,and gave it another go this year.
No complaints here.We both started with garlic bread with cheese,which was fine,not a lot they could get wrong with that!
My main was chicken fajitas,which were lovely.My girlfriend had a chicken kebab which was massive and very tasty.
Will go back next year as it was good.

“Don't miss this gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

Awesome. We went there on our wedding anniversary and were blow away by how good it was.
Very busy right on fisherman's beach but I didn't see a plate with any food left or a meal get sent back. I wouldn't say it is the cheapest but definitely the best meal we gave had anywhere in a long time. The atmosphere was friendly and the staff were not stressed even though it was busy

“Nice place for a meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

I'm not normally a fan of this kind of restraunt (mexican themed) especially in a place where there are so many nice local places to eat but it was recomended and we gave it a try. I had a ribeye steak that was really excellent and grea value at 12.95 and the misses had fajitas which she really enjoyed. Staff were friendly and was pretty reasonable. All was down with 2 delicious Margaritas. Recomennded

“Dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

I was ill afterwards, cutlery was dirty and the toilets were dirty. Staff were also very unenthusiastic and wouldn't explain the dishes. Strongly advise against.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012 via mobile

Food was amazing and one of the best meals I have ever eaten. Would recommend the peppers stuffed with beef to anyone, and finally non watery beer! Five stars
