The food was so good! Everything tasted so fresh and well flavoured. The best Mexican food we've ever had. Big portions too. As much as I wanted to I couldn't finish my main so my husband had to help! We will be going back with the kids next time and I'll be suggesting it to friends for school mums meals... More

We went here at the weekend for our niece's 21st party, there were 28 of us in a not enormous restaurant..we weren't rushed & the staff were friendly & attentive, despite having a full house.The food was delicious & reasonably priced, although meals did come out sporadically so we weren't really eating together .The cocktails were also very good.A good...

Empty Monday evening, fantastic service! Free chips and dip. Ordered a burrito, however everything was put on the plate separate. No problem, I loaded that wrap up! Lovely staff. And a free strawberry mojito on leaving. Plus a 30% off the bill. Of course no complaints!

This place is great fun in the evenings..the waiter pulls random girls out of their seats to dance with. Food does the trick.

Went on a weekend. The staff were grumpy, maybe they were in a bad mood, but was definitely not service with a smile. Food took a while to come but was quite good. Fajitas were nice. Cocktails were ok, you get a lot for £7. Shame about the service - they were practically shooing us out of the door at... More

Came here on Monday and the food was amazing as usual! The food is very good value for money, especially the nachos which are very large. We decided on having 4 starters rather than a main and it was all perfect. The only down side to this lovely meal was the fact the frozen cocktails (which were also massive) were... More

Fantastic food and drink the best Mexican around. Food is great value for money, the nachos are the best I've ever had and come in a huge portion costing only £3ish. Drinks are also great, the frozen margaritas are to die for and are also huge, however are fairly pricey at £6/7. On the whole a great place very good... More
