“Average Dining”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I found the atmosphere quite uninviting and the restaurant temperature somewhat cool. Although being too hot is not pleasant being too cool has the same uncomfortable affect. The menu is almost exclusively Mexican so if you are in a group and do not like Mexican food, then the menu is limited. The service was reasonable although a few more smiles would not go amiss. What I did eat was well prepared and quite nice, although would not rave about it. Would I personally return, not by choice.

“Extremely poor, rubbish food”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

We visited the restaurant today (new years eve) for the first time. We found the food completely appalling I ordered the £19.95 full rack of ribs which was advertised as having skin on chips and was very disappointed when the waiter brought the ribs to the table minus the chips. Along with the missing chips disappointment I also found my ribs to be cold and tasteless.
My partner ordered the chicken enchiladas with a side order of chips the chips came and tasted as though they had been reheated from a previous customers plate!
After my disappointing meal the waitress returned with the bill only to find we had been charged for the extra missing portion of chips and £11.20 for drinks as the waitress had failed to tell us about the £2.50 lunch time unlimited soft drink deal which had pointed out.
All in all a complete disaster and we will not be returning to this over priced restaurant!

“Poor Service”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

2 adults and 2 children, we went here after the Christmas Light switch on in Cathedral Square. We arrived at 6.60ish we didnot book and the place had a few Xmas Party's in but there were tables free but just not cleaned up ready for the next customer. We were given an electronic beeper that would flash when a table was ready. So we went to the bar area. After another 45min the same tables were still not cleaned up and we still didn't have a table.
Finally we had a table, we ordered and 45mins later the starters came out not impressed. We walked out in the end.
Won't be back.
