The fajitas was really good but the Nachos was really disappointing - apparently the avocado that goes on the top is prepared once a day so by the time we had dinner it was brown and pretty tasteless. We wouldn’t go back

Large portion sizes, attentive service, recommended for locals and visitors to Launceston. Happy hour cocktails were a bonus.

Was staying around the corner from this restaurant, so decided to try my luck as not much else was open on a Sunday evening in "Lonny". Delicious fajitas, although they could've been a touch spicier. The frozen margarita was very welcome on a warm day,...More

The venue is quiet nice here and the service but I would not say that the food lives up to the Mexican name. We ordered burritos and we could not taste any really salsa at all. The meat was almost in a gravy and it...More
