“Bad waitress”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Sorry but I had to say it. Although we didn't eat there, I felt that the waitress was terrible. We went to look for dinner the first night of our trip because we had read good reviews. The waitress told us abruptly at 5.30pm that they were fully booked and when we ask if they were open every night she sighed and then replied they were only open Friday and Saturday for dinner or Wednesday through Saturday for lunch. We returned on Thursday the following week to book for Friday night and found out they were open on that night and when we ask for a table were told that they were fully booked again quite angrily. We felt that they were not welcoming with families and couldn't be bothered to even look if they could fit us at a different time. It is not good customer service specially when you rely so much on the tourists.

“What a hit”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Ate here for NYE and was a great night. The locals made us feel very welcome and the atmosphere was amazing. The menu was limited, I think they shortened it for NYE, but the food was good and the margarita;s and sangria's were fun and authentic. I highly recommend if you get a night with great weather that you check this place out and try the outdoor dinning!

“Good food let down by poor service”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Although not the best Mexican food we have had in South Australia this restaurant is at least average to above average in terms of food quality. Our party of 9 tasted a variety of options and were really only let down by the tiny salad.
However, waiting over an hour for a meal with a waitress who was clearly flustered means we will not be tempted to return.

“Rude staff, terrible customer service”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Visited on a Friday evening, venue was empty, but were told there was 1 chef only and food would take an hour to order. Were advised to return in about an hour for a table. Arrived an hour later at 7:20pm (after confirming with waitress their closing time of 8pm), only to be rudely told we were asked to return at 8pm!? We had driven home and back to have dinner at this venue (persisted only because of good reviews) so I said we would have a seat and order drinks until they were available to take our order. Was told to sit outside by the same waitress and had menus rudely thrown at the table. Not a surprise we decided to leave for dinner elsewhere. Terrible customer service experience.
