“Very noisy!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

Much too noisy for a conversation, with loud music and endless clatter. Food was ok, but nothing special. Needed to order at the bar, and service fluctuated from being desultory to being over busy and annoying.

“First night in Adelaide...Mexican was disappointing!!!”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Decided to try this place on our first night in Adelaide. The site is in a great location near the beach and action in Glenelg.

The food and service was average at best, We waited too long and the the tacos with the pulled beef arrived and were almost inedible..YUK!!

The shared nachos were great as an entree, but it was downhill from there

Won't be back

“Terrible, never returning!! ”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Rude staff, not much on the menu, they should really get up with the times and place peoples orders on a computer that way they won't mess up the orders like they did ours., stating we hadn't paid for a meal then wouldn't bring out the food without going back through ALL receipts and still refused to bring out the meal we ordered and paid for. The service was awful and our drinks took 30mins to get brought to our table when they weren't even busy. Will not be returning!

“good for kids and reasonable price”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

We really enjoyed our meals which were cheap. It was good to get authentic black beans. The restaurant was fairly empty

“Terrible service and average food”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

We went for a meal here last night for a friends birthday, after ordering our food and drinks at the bar, we were left waiting for quite some time before anything was brought out and we had only ordered sparkling water! When the food came out, one of the party was missed out and didn't receive their food. When we enquired we were told that it hadn't been ordered. Despite reassurance from all of us that we had all ordered and paid for the food the staff would not bring out another dish. At no point did the manager come out and talk with anyone and when they finally said they would make up another plate of food, they added that the girl behind the bar would be paying for it. If this happened it was a very expensive burrito, with it being paid for twice!
About 10mins after the rest of the group had finished, they then brought out our friends food. No apology was given and it left a negative note on the night. Very poor customer service and the food was only average as well. I don't think anyone from the group will be back.
