“They forgot us!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

Was so disappointed with the service, after our starter we sat with empty plates for 30 mins, finally they got cleared before waiting another 20 mins for our main, it wasn't busy by any means so I cannot understand what the hold up was. The wine list, empty glasses an empty water jug and unused cutlery were not cleared before we got fresh drinks and our main so the table was a mess while we were eating, it was only a small table for two! Staff were nowhere to be seen so we just did our best to enjoy the food. Again we sat with empty plates for about 40mins! While our mains were cleared by two waiters they neglected to ask would we like a dessert menu but i gave them the benefit of the doubt and assumed one might come back with a menu, big mistake! We waited 20mins but no dessert menu or anyone to check if we needed drinks. A staff member walked past eventually and we asked for the bill. The food was great but i feel we were the forgotten table! As a former waitress myself i can see things from both sides but i really cannot tell why there was such a lack of attentiveness. It was way too laid back! A couple beside us were overcharged and when they questioned it were told they didnt read the small print, maybe they didnt but they were let leave very annoyed also. Any restaurant would know to do their best to avoid that!

“Best Mexican in Dublin. Proper food. Lovely location by the sea.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Great restaurant that I've eaten at a few times now. Authentic recipes with a twist. Great margaritas! I've tried a good few things on the menu and have never been disappointed. Excellent quality, fresh and individual. Friendly service, too.

PS. Love the Ramones memorabilia!

“Best Mexican Restaurant East of the California state line.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Always a favorite of ours when we find ourselves in Malahide. The menu is always fresh and new, the service is friendly and the sangrias are something else.

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

If you like mexican food then this is the restaurant for you. Dined here on a number of occasions and have'nt been disappointed yet. El Diablo chicken wings to die for and the beef fajitas are just as fab aslo try the nachos or the chilli beef all mouth watering. The only complaint if you could call it that, is the portion size is huge so my advice is to share a starter. Staff always so cheerful and chatty. Always look forward to eating here. If you like your food hot and spicy then this is the place to eat. Prices are ok too.
