“Great authentic food”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I love this venue for it's ambiance and food. The prices are reasonable, facilities well maintained and cocktails worth trying.

It is not 'child friendly' with no facilities like a kids room for younger children who aren't interested in sitting still...so they'll use the pillows to pillow fight at the table.

Also, at different times we've found the service lacking. All in all, on a child free night, it's a place we'd like to return to.

“Friendly staff, tasty food, amazing sangria!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Dined on a Sunday night, quickly seated, drinks (jug of delicious sangria and a beer) ordered and delivered. Very polite waiter. Food was delicious, my burrito stuffed full of beef! Ordered the 'sweet nachos' as dessert and OH MY GOSH... AMAZING!!! highly recommend if you have a sweet tooth. Good menu options, not too spicy, great decor, pleasant staff, will definitely return.

“Fun Pace, Great Mexican”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This place is always packed and a lot of fun! I have never received a bad meal and for those lovers of Mexican it is the perfect spot. There is a large Mexican selection and the food is always full of flavour. The prices are reasonable and the cocktails are also good. The atmosphere is fun, upbeat however can be very loud so its something to keep in mind if wanting a more relaxed quiet setting. Perfect place for the family, or birthday celebrations!!

“Lots of fun”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

We had an exceptional meal that was full of fun and very generous portions . The food was fresh and tasty and a very good selection was available.
Good choice of reasonably priced drinks with an exceptional choice of tequila.
When we visit next time I will be ordering entree sized mains though cause they are such generous portions.
