Slow service, mediocre food, absolutely appalling, rude unhelpful manager/owner. American guy, charmless, manner-free and no common sense. Why he is in the hospitality business is a mystery. Even if everything else would be good, one wouldn't go back because of him. Unfortunately everything else isn't...More

We never went in for about 14 years every year we visited Brunswick Heads because it looked a bit run down and basic. Then one day we did! Wow great food and margaritas, so now we go there every year. Sometimes the waitresses don't always...More

Unfortunately not a great night. A few young staff members, think first night on a Friday, so they did not know there way around, advice on menu etc. so tough to get order completed. Meals were underwhelming and disappointing, even the drinks not the spark...More

Best Mexican in the north coast area! Food is always good and the tequila range is epic! Tonight I have had possibly the best nachos of my life.

Quite a lot of negative comments a few years ago. No idea if it was same owner. The decor and fit out is “rustic”. The owner has just about got some customer service about him. The serving staff are not particularly polished. No matter overall...More

The food was absolutely beautiful. Very fresh and tasty. Plenty of variety. Drinks were very reasonably priced. Enjoyed the outside dining on a warm summers evening. The only negative was the amount of times the young waitress asked if we were ready to order. The...More

My favourite restaurant. Fantastic food and very generous portions. Favourite dishes include Enchilada, Yucatan Prawns and Baja Tacos, they're all great. Best jalapeño Margaritas I've ever had. It has a great atmosphere and love the outside courtyard. Staff are friendly and service excellent. A must...More
