Worst Mexican food I've ever tasted. Bland, bland, bland. There are so many better places to eat in Noosa

“Average!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

They claim to have the "second best Frozen Margaritas in the World" ... Truth, very little tequila and definitely not the second best in the world! Service was ok in regards to the casual style of restaurant it is. In regards to the food service, entrees arrogated at the table and we had no cutlery, so we had to ask for this as waitress just put food down and took off, then while eating our entrees out came the mains, all piled in together, we weren't even half way through our entrees so our mains were quite tempered by the time we got to eat it. The meal sizes ate excellent for the price, I had a combination burrito meal, the beef one was very tasty, the chicken one was so bland!

In all the experience was OK, If you are after a quick meal on the run then I'd recommend it, If you are after a good dining experience then I wouldn't recommend it. There was 4 of us, we had dip and nachos to share to start and 4 mains and a pitcher of lime flavored ice with a dash of tequila and it came to $130 so not bad but definitely dined in much better in Noosa for the same price !

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

I love Mexican food but this has never done it for me.
My favourite Noosa restaurants are typically on the beach front where you can enjoy good food, reasonably priced AND with the world's best location.
Montezuma beng upstairs in a shopping centre doesn't quite compare.
The food is ok, typical Mexican fare you can find anywhere in Australia so with so many choices in Noosa, why would you bother.
