“An enjoyable evening!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I booked this table for 9 adults on a Saturday night. On arrival we were sat in a very small booth, luckily I hadn't told the restaurant our 9 adults actually included 2 babies, which saved us as then they could sit on the end on high chairs, if there were actually 9 adults we would not have fitted at all! Other than that we all really enjoyed our night, the restaurant was very busy and service was quite slow because of this. But the food was lovely, the atmosphere was good and the staff were very friendly. Would definitely go back.

“Poor.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Staff hardly spoke English and the food was average at best. No atmosphere and although the restaurant was more or less empty we were say on a table twiggy near the only few other people there rather than being asked where we wanted to sit. Just average really.

“Fair service- food ok nothing more”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Staff all seem rushed. Not a pleasant experience, I was hoping to be wowed by more woe than anything else. Didn't feel relaxed or at ease, very noisy and music was turned up to drown out the noise which made people talk louder! Food wasn't anything to send my mum a postcard about and the ladies toilets were pooey! Food and drink expensive for what it was. Disappointed.

“Had a great night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Went here Friday night with another couple, had booked table, shown to nice large booth. Was attended to quickly by Manager who recommended a wine for us which we all enjoyed, so much so had 4 bottles! All our food was enjoyable, waiting staff were attentive and friendly. Have been here several times now and always have a good night. Had a couple of dishes that have not been so good, potato skins with chorizo was quite bland, but usually food is good. Restaurant is usually busy which makes for a good atmosphere.

“nice staff, food not up too much. I do better at home with an ElPaso kit!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Went for sons birthday on an early monday evening in June. More customers than i expected, but not busy. Shown to a table straight away by friendly staff, who took our drinks orders. We had a nachos sharing platter to start, which was a bag of doritos with a few blobs of yukamole, a drizzle of 'sour cream' (no way that was fresh, but some long life stuff) then some cheese and banged in the microwave. a measley portion for 4 (thankfully). Mains were burritos, enchilada, chimichangas. 1 stuffed tortilla, some black beans and rice that had uncooked (or dried out) grains in it. all tasted pretty much the same. The kids had churros for dessert and again, these were underwhelming (and undercooked in the middle). I cannot bring myself to even give it an average. Although the kids liked it (but they love McD's!), I shall not be going back. £80 for 4 with 4 drinks
