The problem I had with it was what to choose as there are so many great looking dishes on it.... More

We went to the Mexican on the spur of the moment. We had intended to eat somewhere else, but had been disappointed the night before and decided on The Mexican. We were certainly NOT disappointed with our choice! For starters we had coconut prawns and cheese stuffed jalapenos. I think the prawns are probably an acquired taste - I loved... More

Initially you are welcomed in by the lovely staff who sit you down and present you with shot glasses of margaritas and freshly cooked nachos. Then you have to make the... More
