“Great Tasting Mexican food on a seasonal menu”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Awesome flavours! We tried a range of soft shelled taco's, quesadilla's, & two of the best salads in recent memory. Couple of drawbacks - not a big fan of shared seating with a 2.5yr old (long tables with people potentially either side of you), the kids menu was way too spicy for kids - tastes just like adult menu?? & drinks are pricey ($8 for small glass beer on tap, bottles $9+)

“nice food terrible service”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The food was tasty and quick to come out from the kitchen. However the restaurant was freezing and the service was bad. The wait staff were clearing plates from people at our table before they had even finished their last mouthfull. My 6 year old was holding & eating her taco & turned to speak to someone and turned back and her plate had been cleared away. There weren't people waiting for a table so I cant understand the haste. I love mexican food but the service has put me off going back here. Apart from whipping plates off the table, once our order was taken, we didn't see the wait staff again.

“Fresh n fast food”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Popped in unannounced on a saturday evening and there was just room to squeeze 2of us in. Staff were attentive and service fast,but not rushed. Food was delicious and ''mild' was spicy enough for someone who doesn't like hot food. A great Atmosphere. Perfect for parties.
