I booked for my two friends and I prior to us arriving into town and I'm glad I did, it was busy being a Saturday night. The service was great and friendly. The food came out fast and was fresh and tasty. I would only...suggest a few more non tequila options for the cocktail menu, I had a margarita but I really can't get past the taste of tequila and enjoy it. Apart from that this place is awesome and worth going to for a relaxed dinner out with family and/or friends.More

Very busy little place. Nice gift shop as well. I am 55 years old and had a few fajitas in my time,these were the best beef fajitas I have ever had. The guac wasnt too bad either. All the staff seemed nice and friendly. Servings...were plenty big enough. If you can grab a table, I say go for itMore

We were looking forward to eating here on our first night in PD. Unfortunately whilst the service was great, the food was underwhelming. It seems the dishes we chose (pork belly tacos & barramundi burrito) were all about the ‘hero’ ingredient and paid little attention...to the other ingredients (taco filled with shredded lettuce and burrito filled with rice) with little flavour. Sangria was the best we had. Food 5 service 8 sangria 8.More
