“Great cheap and fast mexican”

And it comes with or without cocktails! You get a bowl of complimentary tortilla chips, and prices are reasonable.

“Not up to scratch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Really fancied a Mexican meal but the service, food and environment here is very very ordinary...in fact below expectations.

“Head chef not accommodating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

I ordered one enchilada as I was not very hungry at the waitresses suggestion, only for her to return and apologise that the head chef said that I would have to have two or nothing! The waitress was very friendly and great for business but the head chef is not. Some of us don't want to waste food or eat a big meal! We were not trying to save money as we spent more on the expensive drinks. We nearly walked out! A bit of customer satisfaction goes a long way! Will not be back!

“Go for happy hour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

We arrived just on happy hour! Great priced sola's, cocktails and food! All yummy. Packed full of happy people. Went back for the Salsa dancing. Entertaining! Take your friends, sit on the deck above downtown, drink a cocktail or two and sample some Mexican food. Nice way to spend an afternoon
