This place was closed at the weekend during the day so we tried again for lunch today and it was opened. Service, setting, and food supply all great & just about rightly priced for an afternoon starter and main (with drinks). Just as I like it!

(Get there before 8.30 if you can to avoid a queue)The staff are really lovely despite being exceptionally busy. We had nachos and potato skins to start, large portions, more... More

Lovely evening, the staff there are super nice. Be sure to get there early as we couldn't get a seat outside but upstairs is still lovely! Great size portions, we both had the ribs, and the nachos as starter was great!!! The location is good near all the nice restaurants!

We have eaten here every time we have been to Portugal. We usually get there around 1900 as any later and you will wait in line for up to an hour. With a bucket of beer and wonderful nachos the meal is off to a great start. The burrito is my favourite and anything you can't eat will be boxed... More

The food is lovely. The staff are friendly and really helpful. The margaritas are the best I've ever had, even better than the ones I had in Mexico, and they're slushy so they keep you nice and cool. I'm going to miss this place now I'm home!

We were seated and staff were friendly and very hardworking seeing them run up and down the winding stairs to the terrace once... More

I had tortilla chips with salsa to start, which was very nice, salsa was very spicy and delicious. I had a chicken enchilada for main course, served with mexican rice and refried beans. Best Mexican I've ever had! My... More

The food here is amazing. Try the lunchtime special of Ribs, Wings & Rings. We teamed it with a salad and it was enough for 2 for a light lunch. We ate here one evening and the portions are large, the others in my party that had steak said t was excellent, succulent and juicy and not over cooked. If... More
