We visited on a Monday at lunchtime so we had the benefit of a super quick service, which is great when you have a toddler. A sweet little serving of corn chips and salsa is a really friendly way to be greeted too! My tacos were tasty and savory with an added side of guacamole. My mum had the nachos... More

Great food. Good service and lots of tequila. Worth it. Our bill was around $60 but we also shared dessert. My top picks are the Fajitas and the crumbed calamari which melts in your mouth. To finish off have the Churros with chocolate dipping sauce and strawberry icecream. Loved the whole experience.

We had lunch here recently and our Mexican meals were excellent. The sizzling prawn fajitas were outstanding and a good size portion. The service was friendly and prompt and the location on a sunny Sunday afternoon overlooking the marina with a relaxed family and friends atmosphere added to the entire experience.

Bland bland bland chefs platter. Prawns in the salad were tasty but $25 for lettuce leaves & a sprinkle of feta & figs? Ouch. Disappointing for the money.

We celebrated my wife's 30th birthday here, 40 people attended this party on Halloween, it really worked well and everyone was so happy with the service and the food. The manager was brilliant and the staff fantastic and attentive, they give us complementary entrees and a bar tab with margaritas and coronas for a great price. I recommend this place... More

My sister and I shared a platter for 2 yesterday at lunch. Food was tasteless and looked old, not sure where the cheese went? My sister also became sick after eating there. Won't see me back there and sad I can't support a local business.

Last night went to this restaurant last night. We were seated quickly and given complimentary corn chips and tomato relish. We ordered a jug of Sangria and a platter with about 6 different food choices. We really shouldn't of had dessert but we did. We had Churros with chocolate sauce and strawberry icecream. We spent $65 which was reasonable considering... More

We went there the other night with high expectations. To say we were let down would be an under statement. The Chilli con carne (cant remember what they called it) tasted more like a bolognese sauce, come on who has ever seen peas and carrots in an authentic chilli con carne ? Not me, beans yes but never carrots or... More

Have eaten here a few times - great location at Raby Bay Harbour precinct - cozy inside for winter eats or in summer great to sit out the front for dinner and drinks. Generally go with a group and share a few meals - my favourite are the chicken quesadillas and the jalapeno poppers - their Sangria is refreshing as... More
