One of my favourite restaurants in Cardiff, great for couples, friends or a big group (I had a birthday with 15 friends + here a few years ago). Really great food and drinks at really reasonable prices - we had our pitcher of margarita before hitting Cardiff town (liberal amount of tequila was well received) , just a short walk... More

Having lived 30 seconds away for the last two years we decided to finally try Daiquiris. It was fairly quiet which meant the food came very quickly on a metal plate, keeping the food piping hot. The paella was delicious with loads of chicken and chorizo. Everyone thought the food was great with generous portion sizes and great flavour. The... More

Amazing food - opted for chicken chimichanga. Smothered in cheese and had loads of flavour. Brilliant cocktails. This place does not disappoint.

Ate at Daiquiris last night and had the paella. Staff were very friendly, the food was well priced and it tasted nice. It was a bit disappointing to have to go up and order at the bar rather than being served at the table. Whilst I wouldn't say it was anything special, for the price I would be happy to... More

I came here frequently a few years ago when I was a student living locally. I often recommended this place to people, the chicken burrito was amazing. I revisited two weeks ago, I ordered the chicken burrito and a mojito. Unfortunately, the mojito was made with something that tasted like cheap corner shop lemonade/lime cordial and the mint used was... More

Visited here for the first time last Saturday evening with my girlfriend. It was the hottest day of the year so far so did question going for a Mexican, but as soon as we walked in, the air conditioning chilled us out. We had a great welcome from the 2 members of staff who gave us a menu and explained... More

Had another meal tonight and it was fab! Even took pictures of my meal (again) because it looks wow and tastes better! Definitely one of the best, non alcoholic piña coladas to die for.. Just awesome!
