Delightful restaurant - great variety/service/atmosphere - highly recommended. Waitress was very knowledgeable. The chips and salsa arrived before we had finished ordering!

The service was incredibly good for a street market food restaurant type. Prices are similar to a tapas restaurant, the portions maybe slightly bigger than average tapas. You need to order 2 or 3 dishes to have a proper full meal instead of just a snack. At the end it is like to order a main course in a normal restaurant in term of price. Therefore I would say yes it's not expensive as each time is around 4 pounds but not even that cheap if you think about it. You will still end up spending around 16 pounds per person just for food and not considering dessert or sides. Cocktails are also good but roughly normal bar price. The churros are delicious, however I would have preferred a big one instead of few small pieces. That would have been more ''street churro'' alike. Having said that, my impression was good cause had a good time and it's was novelty but not so overwhelming to replace normal Mexican restaurants where I normally eat. If you haven't been it's good to try if it happens to be around one of the chains they opened I guess.

Arrived quite late and the place was heaving with people, nice atmosphere though.

Ordered some drinks then the waiter told us the specials etc, very helpful but could barely understand him, not sure where his accent is from.

Chose 4 things from the tapas menu and he told us they would arrive in a while and not altogether just when they were ready. About 4 minutes later they all arrived at the same time. I found this off considering there were 2 chicken options and to cook it fresh would take longer. To be fair the food tasted really good although I had a sore stomach later on as did the person I was with, this could be completely unrelated though.

I would go back. The guacamole was delicious and worth going for.
