“Close to holiday Inn but average mexican”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Eaten here on a number of occasions. I would say average and adequate, but not the greatest of mexicans. More chain in its look and feel, which it is and is like a TexMex joint, which can be ok once in a while.

“Second views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Have been it here before and was ok nothing great. went in last night and yes very busy and yes had to wait for table. Staff very helpfull and kept us informed from the word go about delays, fair enough didnt mind as long as staff talk to you. Sat down after approx one drink and 20 mins latrer (not bad). food very fresh and salad to die for. The only bad thing was looked like new staff and felt sorry for senior staff as they appeared to pick up a lot of slack.
