We are big Mexican fans so were looking forward to trying this out on saturday night, and we weren't disappointed. The staff were friendly and food was excellent. We both had fajitas and there was lots of food! Don't hesitate in having the frozens margaritas they are fab!!

This was my second visit here and I was very impressed again. Great food, great drinks and great service. Me and my partner shared the guacamole to start which was lovely and we both had fajitas for main course. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. I would thoroughly recommended checking this restaurant out if you are in the area.

Fabulous selection , beautifully presented and we could not have been better served by Manon We had the pre theatre deal at 2 courses each for £19 but you can add a sweet for £5 so we shared the brilliant apple pie, ice cream and sauce prepared at the table on the hot skillet by Manon. Well worth it

Made reservations to dine here one Saturday evening. Had heard a lot of good reports about this restaurant and being fans of Mexican food my wife and I were excited about dining here. Whilst the food we had was pretty good we couldn't help feeling a little underwhelmed by some of it. There just didn't seem to be a wow... More

Had seen the menu on their website and I really fancied their speciality guacamole made fresh at table. I love guacamole and make a mean one myself, but this was fabulous, it had texture but still creamy and plenty of spice and taste. The rest of the meal didn't disappoint either. Well worth the trip from Lincolnshire!!

We decided to try this restaurant after reading some good reviews about it. We arrived about 10 minutes before our booking time. The staff at the door were very friendly and gave us a beeper as our table wasn't ready. We were told to get a drink at the bar while we waited. There was a lot of people waiting... More

Nice atmosphere despite the huge size of this place. Friendly staff prep guacamole at your table. Burritos aren't too big - might want to order extra veg but the fajitas are great.

We made a group booking for 18:00 and by the time we were seated it was 19:00. No joke. Unfortunately, this seems standard at this restaurant and it's disappointing. The margarita's and freshly made guacamole which is prepared at your table is nice and the food was good. I would say it is pricey for Mexican food and for what... More
