We love going here for the Mexican food...something difficult to find in Australia. My kids love it and they were very accommodating when it was my daughter's birthday. They stored a cake for us, brought it out, gave us a knife, etc. They only have evening hours so it's best to try and make a reservation although when we went in on a Thursday night, we were the only people from 5-6pm. I can highly recommend the vegetarian burrito!

We had a tough week after 2 weeks holiday so thought this would be easy. Menu selection was good and service terrific. We had one Mexican meal and one Italian one and both were tasty....price was OK too. Waitress was happy to help but not too persistent. Meals turned up in a timely fashion which was good - no long wait.
Overall, a good place to have dinner after a tough week.

It is the only restaurant I have encountered that serves Mexican and Italian. For this reason I wondered how good the food would be. I was pleasantly surprised and believe the cuisine would be worthy of a stand alone restaurant representing either cuisine. The Mexican was delicious and the same can be said of the Italian. I would highly recommend giving this restaurant a try.

Not advertised until you walk in, but a BYO wine only. If you like chili then this is the place for you.
