Really good meal. Nachos to share for starters. We had two to share between six and there was more than enough. Main courses were delicious, three of us had the burritos which were really tasty. Large portions though, not one of us finished it completely. One had the meatballs and, although enjoyed, personal taste would have preferred them spicier. Good... More

Been here before and had good food. The food overall was very good, however the service was slow. On arrival we had a drinks order taken, however they took a while to arrive. We then ordered our food, both starters and mains. The starters were quick to arrive however the mains took an hour! The food was excellent but marred... More

I went to Rio with my family recently and my sister talked me into trying their nachos, I don't usually like nachos but I loved these ones, they came in separate bowls with the nachos on a plate in the middle, they where great and so was the service, everyone was so polite and always had a smile on their...

I have eaten here often with a large group of girlie mates. The food is always great and the staff are friendly and helpful. We have our own personal cactus, named 'Colin', who always has to pay a visit to our table when we are downstairs. Our last visit was last week when we were all upstairs for a friend's... More

Visited for my sons birthday. Staff very welcoming. Great menu. Nachos to share were enormous with generous amount of cheese (unlike some other Mexican restaurants) and very good guacamole. Between us we had chef special enchiladas and burritos. All excellently cooked and presented. So tasty with lots of flavours. Well done chef!

A pleasant themed restaurant in the heart of town. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was well presented and the portions large. One of their posters sums it up The Good The Glad And the Hungry!

I went here for my friends birthday around a week ago, as it was a week night it was relatively quiet, the young girls serving us were lovely but had to be prompted to come over at times. They were however very accommodating in bringing out a cake at the end (which we provided). The food was lovely, really big... More
