Had been here once before and absolutely loved it. So was looking forward to it all day today. The starters were great: the Jalapenos Rellenos were delightful and had a great kick to them, the Chilli con Queso (cheese dip) was full on but tasty...More

I love the food in flying burrito brothers, the only thing that make it lose a star was the acoustic is bad... When the dining room is full the noise is so loud! That's even hard to listen to a person in front of you!...More

Varied and interesting menu but food itself fairly boring and didn't live up to the menu. Several dishes over salted, no finesse to the Margarita's. Poor service - long wait for food on a quiet night and then dishes had obviously been sitting waiting to...More

large choice of meal variety, once you decipher the menu. had to ask a few questions about portion sizes and the difference between fajitas, Quesadillas and Enchiladas. meals were decent sizes and very tasty, highly recommend the good old nachos.

The appetisers and kids meals came out quickly. The mains are generous. It is very authentic Mexican fare with countless options. It is a tight squeeze for groups of 10+ but the service is very good and the food is fresh and tasty.

Three of us went for Sunday lunch. Arrived just after opening time which was good as the place started to fill up soon. For starters we shared Chilli Con Queso (excellent choice), El Calamar and Taquitos de Pollo - all tasty, freshly prepared and good...More
