We went here on Father's Day for breakfast, choose this restaurant as was the least busiest out of the whole park- now we know why!! Sooooo slow service! After waiting 30minutes for 2 teas and a coffee we gave up and went and waited for frankie and bennys! If your not in a rush and don't mind a long wait... More

Excellent menu with so much choice. The food was delicious, especially the prawns. Great range of drinks, including cocktails. Fast and friendly service.

Had a great meal here. Really enjoyed the Quesadillas and my husband really enjoyed his Fajitas. Great atmosphere - this is our new favourite place!

Good night out if you want a nice meal with a few nice drinks with the family or partner. Service was really good and a mention to a staff member named Perry who made sure we were fine all night and made everything perfect. The food was really nice and not really a cocktail drink but they were unreal! Would... More

Despite the references you will find on the website I don't really think that this is a bad restaurant. Obviously you can't eat every day this kind of food but from time to time it's a rational choice

This restaurant is nicely laid out, well appointed and offers a straightforward menu of mainly Mexican fare. All good so far, right? Unfortunately wrong. The restaurant was moderately busy when our party of three arrived so we had to wait fifteen minutes for a table. Reasonable enough as we had not made a booking, although there were a number of...

Came here for a friend's birthday meal. And the service was appalling. We visited on a Monday night, it was slightly busier than I thought it would be, however it wasn't busy in comparison to the trade they do on a Friday or Saturday. We were sat at a table quickly, yet waited at least 20 minutes for drinks. When... More

I visited here on a busy Saturday night with three friends, we had reserved a table and it was ready when we arrived. We ordered cocktails which were very nice and our waitress was excellent. Three of us ordered fajitas and one of us had the chilli. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Desserts were nice too. I had a 25% off... More

A group of us thought we would try Mexican food for a change and visited for lunch recently. With a high ceiling, the restaurant is attractively decorated and should have worked as a venue, but there was very little atmosphere and the service was lacklustre. The lunch options look attractive but the portions were very small and I am writing... More
