Went here after previous good feedback on trip advisor as a family of 4 on New Year's Eve.
From when we arrived to leaving all the staff were exceptionally friendly & attentive.
Great menu & choice plus huge selection of cocktails. The food seemed to arrive in an instant, ever so tasty & hot and very fresh.
Great & typical Mexican decor & atmosphere. Music to begin with was very traditional but switched later to some 80's classics which was right up my street. Not too loud, just right.
The tables are close to each other but such is the ambience & atmosphere here it only added to the typical festive feeling & party buzz in the restaurant.
I really can't fault our experience in any way & will definitely become a regular customer.
Difficult to comprehend any of the rare negative reviews on here & reading in-between the lines appear to be from the stereotypical rude customers who expect excellence at all costs or the typical rowdy large group!
The bill does include a service charge which I always welcome & removes the last minute guesswork & calculations. It was a pleasure to add to this such was the service by staff who were working on New Years Eve.
A real gem in Sidcup High St making a welcome change from the many Indian (though very nice) restaurants.

Good spot for unfussy meal out with friends. Food was decent value for money - as always with restaurants the money is made on the drinks, but if the budget allows, do have a margarita or two ! The website has full menus so you can see what's on offer in advance, if that's your sort of thing.

Mixed crowd, some couples, some larger groups with a range of ages.

Would recommend that you give it a try if you're in the area.

I and my wife were looking for a relaxing evening and found this restaurant just the right place. Great quality cocktails and excellent food, highly recommended
Don't be put off by the pricey menu, it's worth it

Really enjoyed the food. There were four of us - started with a sharing meat platter which contained ribs, chicken skewers, corn on the cob, chilli, and others. More than enough food and it was only a starter!

The restaurant was only half full as most people were at the fireworks. However, everytime the inner entry door opened it dropped a few degrees, they need to keep the outer door shut.

The main meals were huge portions and very tasty. You have to like beans and coleslaw as all meals come with these.

Many reviews have stated about it being pricey but i thought it was reasonable. Four people, three beers, three lemonades, sharing platter, four mains = £90. This includes a 10% service charge that was automatically added.
