Good place to go with family or friends. Has a bubbly atmosphere serving nice cocktails and reasonably priced food. When you book tell them if you're celebrating a special occasion and they will get the sombrero out and sing!

We celebrated a birthday and took the whole family there. Had the most amazing lamb cutlets and all the food was really good. We were given sombreros and took some unforgettable shots. Then the cake with the candles was brought in with music and fun. Great experience!

Me and some friends went here for cocktails. Instead of explaining the deal we wanted for 'buy one cocktail and get one free cocktail' they rudely stared and mumbled that we had to pay full price for both because what we wanted to eat didn't justify the free cocktail.

Took my 4 kids & wife there 6pm today. Meatballs were great (I have searched for the world's greatest meatballs & these were up there! I do pretty good ones myself). Ribs, fajitas & desserts well made & promptly served. If only they could have made my kids behave at the table.... ;)
