“Fab & Fun”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Four of us went for dinner on a packed Saturday night and really enjoyed it. As others have said it's probably not the place to go for a romantic meal for two, but it IS the place to go if you want a relaxed meal, a bit of fun and cocktails :) Considering how busy it was the service was great, the menu was explained to us and the fact that the dishes come out as and when they're ready (which is great).

Having been to Mexico the food is not quite the authentic Mexican food I've experienced but it is good tapas with more of a Spanish feel. The chorizo chaser and paella were very good plus the gambas were delish.

The portions were a good size and all dishes were reasonably priced. The menu is extensive, covering tapas as well as pizza's and gourmet burgers so you'd be hard pushed to not find something you liked! There are also plenty of veggie options and fish options.

It's great to have something different in Kendal and I wish them all the very best. We WILL be back :)

“Fabulous dining experience”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

After driving past the place daily I noticed it packed out most evenings, my curiosity got the better of me. Greeted pleasantly and seated in a very timely manner considering how vibrant the restaurant was. The Mexican hats, moustaches and somewhat interesting décor create a relaxed environment for even the most austere of characters. Vast beverages menu including cocktails. Portion sizes were bigger than your average Tapas, although there was no compromise on taste. I can personally recommend the kebab platter, jalapeño bites and quesadillas.

“Wouldn't let us in”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

They were empty.
It was 630pm on a Monday.
Nothing available until 8pm they said.
We ate next door ( excellent ) and checked them out an hour later and they still had space.

Thanks for your review, reviewing the fact you didn't eat with us?? We may have tables spare at 6.30 when you walked in without booking, however these where all booked in advance within the next half hour to an hour, therefore we would not let the people that have taken the time and effort to book down to squeeze you in, Even the bar table was booked!
We are not in the business of rushing guests through, we give at least 1.5hours to smaller groups and 2 hours to all other groups. why would we turn you away if we wasn't fully booked? It makes no sense. We also offered you the next available slot(an hour and half later), however if you stated that you just wanted to throw food down your neck within an hour then maybe we could of squeezed you in turfed you out, however we would much rather have guests in that want a good time and contribute to the fun atmosphere.
If you are wanting to dine with us in the future its advisable to book, maybe you might now understand that it wasn't a 'mistake on our part' it was purely having no tables available exactly when you walked in, and then to write a poor 'review' based on that fact is just silly.
