“Mexican Restaurant in the Eastern most town in Australia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

My wife and and had trekked to the Lighthouse and back - and were starving. This restaurant both provided a wholesome Mexican meal and at a reasonable price. it also somehow kept the deluge that ensued outside - to the outside!

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went as a family and were not that impressed - the food was ok but nothing outstanding and the service very hit and miss - the "cocktails" were very bad - something out of a bottle - not fond of margaritas that taste of plastic and clearly were more ice than anything else. Shame because they tried hard but just missed the beat - sorry Aztec...

“The worst ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

A recent visit to this place....what a disaster, after waiting for more than an hour for food that was the worst I have ever tasted ( should have left when we noticed all plates being cleared half eaten). I spoke to the owner about our disapointment and she could have cared less. As they say catch me once shame on me....catch you!!!! ....shame on you.....Keep Away you have been warned.

“Worse food ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

I burnt my hand on a hot plate that had no other plate to protect me or the table... then when i complained that the food tasted burnt and not right, i was not heard. I then asked for a discount and was told no. i had to pay full price for food that was disgusting. i will never eat there again.
