“Gone down over the years”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Have been going to this restaurant for years and have always enjoyed the food but I must say over the past year things have been going down hill. The food no longer has the exciting flavours it once had and the staff although very polite do not have the same knowledge about the food. The food is just bland and so is the atmosphere in the restaurant very different to how it once was. Sadly I will not be going back unless I hear things have improved. Visited 14/9/13

“Hasn't improved much since last visit 5 years ago”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

My overriding memory of this place was when we visited over 5 years ago. There was six of us, they ran out of chilled white wine and draught beer. The service was poor but the food was good.

Five years later and this time just the two of us. I thought I would have a draught beer, guess what again they had run out! This is inexcusable in 2013, what with POS showing usage and short lead times on supply its very poor,

It was a thursday night, the place was pretty quiet and still the service was slow. If you go for the nacho starter for 2 its nearly £11, pretty pricey! We opted for nachos for one for £5 which was still alot for what you got.

I ordered a corona as they were doing two for a fiver. Not a bad deal. The second one turned up without a lime in it!?!?!? This is a *mexican* restuarant, they must serve this as their staple drink, again very poor. The next table to us order coffee and got no spoons. This isn't rocket science its BASIC customer service.

On the plus side the enchiladas we had were great, not cheap at £11 but they were big so did represent value for money. Sort out the service and don't run out of beer and it could be a great little restaurant.

“HAD TO WAIT A LONG TIME!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

The cocktails were lovely, but we had booked a table for 8.00pm and turned up at 7.30 to have cocktails waited for our table to become available. At 815pm we asked if our table was ready we were offered a table in the corner for two, but squeezed in. No way, annoying as we had booked and thought would get a decent table. So we waited until another table was available and had another cocktail, free of charge. Eventually at 9.15 we got our table and talked to other people in the room and they had waited for their main meal after starters for an hour!! a table of about 25 people had still not been served and were being given "shots" and later bottles of champers as compensation!!! We decided not to eat a lot and had nachos which were not that good but we ate them. They need more staff, very friendly but get your act together. Sorry won't be back - we will try the various Indians in Amptill next time

“Good food, good cocktails, good atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

We are fairly regular visitors to this restaurant. Our last visit was Thursday evening and the restaurant was quiet. You need to book at weekends though as it gets very busy. The food was lovely, I had a chicken burrito and my husband had a chicken chimichanga, and the cocktails were good. My husband was disappointed as they didn't have any of the beer he likes but we were told they were getting some different ones in soon so we'll be back to try these out. A great place to go with a group of friends but equally good for couples.

“Good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Visited here with a group of friends one weekday evening, service was very good and attentive (although there was only one other couple in the restaurant, so it is to be expected). The food was good, most of us had the enchilada's or chimichangas, I would not advise the quesadilas though, as one of the group ordered this and the portion size was tiny in comparison to the other dishes, yet priced the same? There is a good variety of cocktails, although it may be nice to see the food menu added to or changed, perhaps some daily specials? Overall a fairly good dining experience, with very good service.
