Went here on a Wednesday night and had a lovely meal. The restaurant was pretty empty, which was a shame, it deserves to be busier!

We had the large nachos to share as a starter, and they were really tasty. I had a beef burrito and my boyfriend and friend both had chimichangas.

I have a Tastecard, so got 50% off the food bill. We had two rounds of drinks too so the whole meal cost us £38 for the three of us.

I plan on going back on a Friday or Saturday for cocktails!

Each time I go out from Finsbury park station I can't stop myself to have some delicious cheesy nachos & cocktail .. It's just about perfect to have that with their good atmosphere...I would definitely recommend this place who really wants to enjoy their night out in the north.. And the waitresses are like wouwww;) I meant about service:)

This restaurant is a complete joke nothing about it was Mexican. Firstly the waitresses could barely understand any English and was struggling to take our order, and they were being extremely rude as well. Then we ordered a starter of nachos, which had no salsa on but instead consisted of salad thrown on top of cheap tortilla chips. Next we ordered the main an enchilada which had poor presentation and to be honest an El Old Paso packet meal who have been better. The cocktails were also a disappointment laced with rum unable to taste anything else. Overall we left the majority of our food as well as the cocktails and left for somewhere else.
