Overrrated! Portions too small! Despite all that hype and the great appearance of the place we found it to be overrated. This is my third visit and I waited to see improvements before writing a review but not much has changed. The staff greeted us...very nonchalantly, admittedly they seemed rushed off their feet but were not very organised and we frequently had to get their attention when they had forgotten things. When they did come they always seemed keen to upsell us to more food and drink which was rather irritating. So it seemed they’d been trained on that but not so much on consistent or warm service, which comes down to management. We ordered tacos, the price was as a main but the portion was like a starter and wasn’t that great! We had some cassava fries with it but at 9 euros were expensive for what they were and way too salty, presumably another way to get us to buy more drinks! The plus side is the buzzing atmosphere and the interior decoration but other than that it seems to be more style over substance! I’m sure real Mexicans would be surprised at the small portion sizes!More

we had a reservation and were looking forward to eating there. when we arrived we were allocated a strange table, which was not decorated with any lights, like the other tables. They had a lot to do and it was impossible to get in touch...with the waiters. we ordered and got the wrong food, they took that dish back and were not told what was going to happen next. After a while, i got the correct dish that i had ordered but missing a strong salsa that we ordered. No apology was given.. no one came to ask if the food tasted good, no one asked if we wanted more to drink, or if we wanted coffee or dessert. and as I said, it was impossible to get in touch with the waiter, so we gave up. we had actually intended to try out a lot of different things, several good drinks, but were never asked, and then we had been there for several hours.. shame.. the food was good but i expected more. I am and have been working at a mexican restaurant as a waiter and bartender for over 7 years, and like to visit other restaurants in different big cities When i have the chance, to Get inspired, but this was a disappointment..More

Beautiful outdoor setting. They sat us at a picnic table, because there was nothing else available outside. Turned out great, because the view was even better. Waitress was very nice and attentive. The best salsa I ever had. Guacamole was good. Chicken quesadilla was fantastic....Very good house margaritas. Sangria just tasted like juice. Not a fan of the fish tacos. Bland and just tasted like fried food. Family member said that the carnitas tacos were delicious. Serving sizes were bigger than expected. Expensive compared to similar diningMore
