Gluten free vegan food. What more could a girl ask for? Food was delicious, the place is cosy and staff were amazing

Called midweek for lunch. Our waitress was chatty and pleasant and the seating was as expected. However, the food was uninspiring and overpriced. Both the burritos and tacos were bland and unimaginative and needed half a bucket of salsa to make them remotely interesting. Mexican food can be so much fun if presented well. However, we were pleased to say... More

Not sure if it's because we had takeaways or not but our nachos were dry and pretty bland, not sure what the burrito was like, but our son struggled to get halfway through and being that he loves Mexican and is a 16 year old boy and didn't rave about it suggests it was much like the nachos, blah!

Our large group were generally disappointed as everything lacked flavour: the nachos were but boiled mince & the burritos were only saved by the truly excellent hot sauce. The guacamole was blah & we were on sold that along with any cheese as an add on. When it came to deserts our waiter was missing in action so his salesmanship... More
