My friend and I came in for drinks tonight. They took over 30 minutes to come and when we told the staff they didn’t seem to care. We completely understand that they are busy but that was outrageous. They should have made it clear before...we sat down that we would have to start eating our food without our drinks. Save your time and just go somewhere else on the strand!More

Pre-booked our booth. Started with happy hour cocktails. These were amazing. We watched as the barmaid freshly prepared them, including spun sugar decorations. Beautifully garnished. Tasted great. Stayed to eat too. Thoroughly recommend a visit. Right on the main walkway around the bay.

We where a group of 12 people the place was really busy. We asked the manager a big guy that looks scary at first but he was an angel he accommodate everything we asked for first we asked if we could have some private area...to discuss some work issues he promptly moved some tables around so we can get our space waiters where so nice to us especially jelena she was so attend to our needs.Food is to die for from the simplicity of a garlic bread to the steak cooked to perfection and what about the cocktails we tried there new cocktails the candy floss suggested by the manager cocktail looks something that pops out of a colourfull animation and usless to say they tasted divine Tex Mex sliema be proud 👏 you can only teach how to treat you clientsMore

Booked for 15ppl for work gathering, brilliant atmosphere upon arrival & even service. After whole party arrived we were moved to our reserved seating. We were split between 3 tables under the covid regulations. Each table had ordered food. Only part the food for one...table arrived. And after sat waiting for over 45mins we approached the waiter for an update, to be told no food was ordered. Not long after that, the mistake was rectified & food started to appear fast. When getting the food for the bill, noticed extra quantities of items that were added on. The waiter was asked & he held his hands up, by admitting he given the food to the wrong table. That was very admirable, but unfortunately short lived as the waiter didnt remove the items from the bill. When explaining the mix up to the appropriate staff who handle the bills, i was then asked if the undelivered food item was eaten by the other table???? How could of possibly of known that. Also why should another table be charged for their mistake…? Unfortunately this wasnt the only time during the evening mistakes were made on the bill. Towards the end of the evening. Whilst settling the drinks bill. 2 cocktails were disputed as we believe no one could account for them. The waiter said he would knock them off from the bill. Upon AGAIN explaining to the staff handing the bills, this was a mistake. And quoting the waiter that had said he would knock them off (which didnt happen) i was challenged by a waitress who was insisting someone had ordered them. But she couldn’t remember who. On further discussion with our group, many men were confront by this waitress & she was insisting they pay up for the drinks. “It was you!, you ordered the drinks” When the waitress was asked who had ordered them, so we could settle the bill fast & leave. She couldn’t identify who it was, and claimed someone had ordered them wanting to pay cash, but she had chosen to put the drinks on our tables bill, when she couldnt find the person who infact ordered them originally. At one point we were even threatened with the police being called??? Lmao Let me just remind you. OVER 2 Drinks! Not the whole bill, just select items that were not ordered by the table or group. Poor customer service OVER 2 DRINKS being disputed. After we had spend HUNDREDS over the course of the evening as a group. Disgusting behaviour from staff not carrying out their job correctly with the best interest of their customers, almost to take advantage thinking no one would notice.More

Had some family over from abroad and we decided to go out for some drinks. Being in Sliema, we went to Tex Mex and I've got to tell you, it was nothing but amazing! As soon as we arrived, the waiter immediately gave us the...tables we needed whilst respecting all Covid-19 measures. He notified us that Happy Hour was ongoing and that we should have a look at the cocktails they serve. Needless to say, the cocktails were absolutely divine! One cocktail better than the other. We also ordered some platters and the food was extraordinary. The Manager, Anthony was always making sure that every table is happy with the service and checking up that everything is up to the standards they so highly work with. We will be there again for sure!More

I checked with the waiter the size of a half rack of ribs and he used his hands to show 7-8 inches. When the ribs arrived, I was aghast. It was nothing like what was explained to me or what is served everywhere else as...ribs. I asked it I could have rice instead of chips or jacket potatoes and was served with a dish of cold rice. I asked to have it heated and that took several minutes. Inspite of not really enjoying the meal I stupidly gave a 3 euro tip. The waiter went pass me 3 times and never once said "thank You" maybe he expected more.More

I can say that the cocktails here are by far much better than at their rivals' i.e MedAsia and The Brew who also offer similar cocktails. The staff were ok, not overtly friendly with a hint of cold, the first order took a while to...come despite not very busy. I recommend this place for good drinks. It has the nice seafront and open air outside sittings.More

It is very recommendable! We ordered nachos and fajitas and they were really good. It's not common to find this type of restaurants in Malta. We enjoyed!
