If you go in weekend or high season in summer probably you should book in advance. they also invite you to a drink after eating, we were invited to a chocolate tequila shot, which was... More

Visited here last year with family for a birthday celebration. Good food, good wine, good service. Visited again in January with two friends and their 9-month-old baby. Food was good but not exciting. Friendly staff.

Disgusting food. Terrible Quality. The Cooking Oil has a bad dirty flavour. Kitchen must not be clean. My Takeaway Order was incorrect - I could not eat any of it. Beef & Chorizo in an only chicken/cheese chimichanga? Very disappointed. Expensive also. Stay away from this poor excuse of a Mexican restaurant. If you are going there because they give... More

The food is good but not very spicy. The restaurant is decorated in an almost "over-mexican" style but it's quite endearing. We ordered fajitas which were plentyfull. I could recommend it as a place to have lunch if you're close-by.

I liked the staff, so friendly, and the portions which were huge. Food came out so quickly and the dishes were very nice, well balanced, all with some fresh vegetables and side dish.
