Authentic Mexican in a colourful and lively atmosphere, wonderful margaritas enjoyed in the courtyard with beach views or dine in in our cosy bar. Sangria is another favourite, huge menu with plenty of vegetarian, beef, seafood and chicken dishes as well as an extensive gluten free menu. Open 7 days
