As the title says. Used to be excellent, big portions, now just an average mexican restaurant. Nowt wrong, just it used to be so much better, and now i can get as good in any other mexican in any other town.

Went there last night with some friends. The service is really friendly, the food is good and the drink offering is varied. We had a really good night, would go back.

A large group of us ate here on Saturday night and the food was great. We had pre-ordered beore which was easy to do and seemed to work well. The only slight issue I would mention is that at no point were we asked if we wanted to add any extra side dishes to our order. And also when pre-ordering your deserts online before hand there is no option to choice ice cream or cream etc and we were not asked, they just bought the deserts out with whatever they thought appropriate. Also been in a large group we wanted to pay for drinks as we went along in order to make things slightly easier when it came to paying at the end but we were not able to do this as they didn't have enough change in the till.

Apart from that all in all a lovely little restaurant with great food!
