“A good restaurant”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We have been to Fajitas in Ram Yard, Ampthill on many occasions and thoroughly enjoy it. Fully intend to go there again.
I have read some of the not so good reviews. What you have to remember is that it's not the Ritz.
The food is always well prepared, we never had a bad meal there. On one occasion the restaurant did seem to be short staffed but not as a rule. We got an apology that our meal was taking a little longer to arrive than usual on that occasion.
The staff we encounter are always courteous, polite and eager to give good service.
The atmosphere is wonderful
The menu is not huge but the options on it are always well prepared and reliably good.
The half timered building which houses the restaurant is charming and quirky,
We go for a good enjoyable evening to dine out and enjoy it, never yet come home after in bad humour.

“never again”
Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

myself and 10 friends visited recently, being locals to the restuarant we have all been previously very impressed however on this occasion not so.... we had not pre booked but on a sundsy evening thought this wouldnt be an issue when we arrived we were told to come back as they werent ready to open so we had a drink elsewhere and returned 30 mins later, we had cocktails in the bar before being seated, it took sometime to order our food as there were hardly any staff but considering we were the only people in there was a little annoyin, whilst waiting for our food we ordered some appetisers which for 11people was a joke in between waiting for our food we hsd to keep going downstairs for drinks as staff kept disapearring, wen our food arrived it was cold and very poor quality and did in no way reflect the price, we asked to speak to manager at which point the chef appeared saying the manager wasnt there but they agreed to take 10% off bill which wasnt much considering the whole experience had been a shambles, we have since emailed the manager but over a week later are still awaiting a reply, however we will not be returning which is shame considering we all live and some work in ampthill

“A lovely meal with nice atmosphere”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

We visited on a Tuesday so there weren't many people at the restaurant but there was still a nice atmosphere. The food was good and the staff were very friendly, we also had great cocktails before our meal, nice to see some variety on the cocktail menu too! It is a bit pricey but worth it for occasions.

“Won't ge going there again!”

Food terrible - won't go back! Was Xmas, but was there for a birthday, no FAJITAS available. Starter fair, main course and desert awful. Others in the party had to send food back,

“Good food, slow service”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

A nice restuarant in a lovely location. The food was lovely and a good selection for you to chose from. Some of the items were a bit on the pricey side, particularly the fajita's and the dessert menu did not have a lot of choice and was missing churros which i love and kind of expected at a Mexican restuarant. The cocktails were really nice particularly the peach margarita and the overall bill total was not too bad but we had used 2 tastecards which cut the bill quite dramatically, otherwise it would have been quite over priced for 6 of us. The major problem is the waiting. I am pretty patient and there were 6 of us to make conversation but 45 mins passed and we finally got our starters then another 40 mins until our main. There was only one other table in that night, though i have a feeling they were short staffed so that may be the reason. May go back there again one day, but would rather try other Mexican restuarants first.
