“Happening and Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The staff here are so friendly and welcoming, it has a really fun atmosphere and the décor is ultra cool. The Mexican food on the menu is great for sharing, or as a snack, lunch or for dinner, washed down with the famous margarita jugs or home-brewed tequila. I loved it and will definitely be back for more if I return to Cape Town!

“Relaxed vibe and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

Sat inside, outside area is for smokers. Lively and vibey restaurant with efficient service. Had a friendly waitress.
Lively vibe and busy/cramped inside. Unfortunately there were 2 bachelorette parties in progress when we were there so it was quite noisy inside.
For a more intimate chat I'd recommend sitting outside.
Lovely burgers!
Mexican menu also very extensive.
Well priced.

I shall return.
