“Chef and waiter to be fired”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I've been there with my friends with recommendation from a friend who visited this place a year ago. Good and spacious interior quite interested us. We wanted a light dinner so ordered nacho salsa, quesadilla, and steak salad. Waiter served nacho and quesadilla first but salsa had no taste and quesadilla was very strange(hard to explain its taste). Soon after we finished them, a waiter came to take away our side dishes and forks. We thought he will bring new ones but rather he asked us if we are finished. Quite funny. So we told him we are still waiting for a salad and he checked the order and told us to wait 10minutes with a little embarrassment. When we finally got it, the steak was too tough to chew. We've never had such a thing before. After a while moment he came us again to take away that salad, which was quite annoying. When we were paying the bill he didn't disappoint us. I gave him a credit card and he gave the terminal to my friend to input pin code!!! How stupid he is!! Overall the food and staff are all sucks!

“Chef should be fired”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Nice and large restaurant space close to Hyatt Hotel in Warsaw. Frequently used for group events. The chef seems to think that by making everyting very spicy and fat people may not discover his lack of talent. I had filet mignon which I ordered to be cooked medium-rare What I got was cooked to death. I have been there 3 times and for sure this was the last. Sad, because the building and concept are good

“Excellent Mexican food :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Had a great meal here on our visit to Warsaw - staying at the Hyatt Regency (opposite). The drinks (martini) and vegetarian burritos were excellent. Very authentic indeed. The decor was as good as the food, very cosy place and nice outdoor area with candles/lights etc. The staff were very helpful with menu choices and the lady on reception friendly. The best Mexican food we've tried. Will definitely be back. Thank you.

“Ok Mexican restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Good for the family on the weekends. Mexican food is alright with a big menu and usually busy. Casual restaurant for an family dinner on a budget.
