We had a lovely meal. Food lovely. Service excellent. My husband had Lamb burrito. He enjoyed it. I had sweet chicken. Although on the menu it described it as tasting chocolately/caramelly, I would say it was more like a sweet sherry/wind taste. Delicious. The main meals are large portions.

The Mexican never fails to give excellent food, good atmosphere and friendly staff. If you like Mexican food then please put this one on your list. There are dishes that are not spicy if you dont like heat and the staff will always help you. We have been going shortly after they opened their doors. That's to the staff and... More

This has got to be one of my favourite restaurants! The service is always good and extremely tasty food. The portions are massive and is very good value for money! The local mussels must be tried!! Negative reviews should be ignored because this is a fantastic restaurant!!

We eat here regularly. We have tried Mexican food all over the place, latest was San Diego. We are always comparing our food to Exmouth and for me, I cannot fault the quality, taste, value for money or authenticity. They are my number one! The mussels are unbeatable.

Avergae food, very spicy. Mussels were not fresh, I know my fish from a fisherman family background and these were frozen and nothing but spice. The lady that served us was nice but there was no music or atmosphere. I wouldn't return as I didn't really enjoy it and it was very expensive for what it was

I've eaten here a few times since moving to exmouth earlier in the year. The service is fantastic but the food is sublime! Their Burgers really are the best I've ever tasted. Can't wait to eat here again.

Pleasant garden. Would be better if fountain was working. Lovely friendly staff. Able to ensure we were served quickly with our pre theatre meal. Duck was very good. Tuna was great too.
