Some Mexican restaurants are not good. But this is a very tasty one! The food is yummy, the service is helpful and friendly. The setting is quaint and authentic. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Can't imagine the sharp overnight price jump for the takeaway will do much for business, if there was justification possibly, when ya just bump up the price of a burrito by a pound it just looks amateurish. Boojum charge more but the food is better...More

Called in on a Tuesday evening, we got the squid ring starter, it was very tasty. I got the veggie enchilada which was delicious. Food was served promptly. Staff were friendly. I would definitely come back.

Love this restaurant and just wish it was bigger as can be hard to get a table. Food is excellent, have never been disappointed. Good variety and staff etc. are always friendly. Best Mexican restaurant I've found in the greater Belfast area.

Best to contact the restaurant to make the booking. They can deal with large groups as we had 21 in our group and they fitted us all in comfortably. I hope this is helpful 😊
