This place is truly magic! I have been eating here since the place opened and even way back in the day when in was in another location under a different name. I have never been disappointed! I have tried EVERYTHING on their menu over the years and it's all scrumptious! The staff are excellent, especially one of the owners, Katrina.... More

Staying in Perth for the weekend for Rewind, we were looking for a nice restaurant for the Friday night which was fairly close to our B&B. We hadn't spotted this place as we drove through & were actually heading elsewhere when it caught our eye. Having quickly looked at the menu we decided to see if they had a table... More

Fantastic staff, and amazing food. Not too badly priced, but you get loads of food for your money. In some instances, it might be worth sharing a dish, as we wasted a lot of very nice food, due to being so full lol. But very highly recommended. And the strawberry Margauritas are yummy.

If you like Mexican food and Margaritas then this is the place to go. We had a great time on a busy Friday evening, dealing huge servings of fajitas and vegetarian dishes. Next time we will share. Service is fast, friendly and informed. Can always take a long walk on the North Inch afterwards.

If I was only reviewing the mains, it would be a straight up 5. The steak fajitas were, as always, a great portion size, flavoursome and filling. Personally I felt that the calamari starter was a bit small with only small pieces of calamari, that said, there were no chewy ones, so well cooked. The staff are attentive and efficient.... More

We went on a week night do it wasn't that busy. Friendly staff, good service. You get nachos and a shot short after arrival! Big portions, the starter to share is defenitly a good way to start. As a main cours we had the fajita 's,a very large portion. You could probably share on for two! will come here again!

Went here for my partner's birthday. Had sharing starter and everything on the platter was delicious! Main meals were very large portions and made us regret ordering the sharing starter but we still had space for a dessert! Will definitely be returning.

Thank Lisa D
