“Excellent mexican food”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

We stumbled in to this place in the heart of Ayia Napa by accident. We chose a set menu, and it was really great food. Nice athmosphere on a busy street with a lot of things to see. Nice gimmick with mexican sombreros, that guests get to try during the meal, and can take pics with. 45 Euros for set menu, drinks for two and food for our 3 year old son. Good value for money

“Great value for money, fast service, great location”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

We ended up eating at this restaurant because we had five starving, impatient kids with us and were desperate to find a central place in ayia napa that could sit eleven people (our group of friends) and also cater to multiple tastes and needs. When we walked into the restaurant, we were first of all amazed that in this ultra touristy city, the waiters went out of their way to put together three tables and find a place to seat us. We told them that we needed fast service because the kids were hungry and we also needed to get out of there fast as we had promised to take them to the fun fair. Indeed they did everything to accommodate our needs and requests, even if they were super busy. The kids ate fast (they also have the typical kids menu) and we adults loved our healthy, fresh, tasty fajitas. Both chicken and beef were excellent, soft, cooked right and the right amount of spices for our taste buds. The marguerita was also very good and we ended up getting a couple of pitchers. Even though we were so many people and the restaurant was busy, we were in and out in about an hour. And we also got a very good deal at 125 euros for 6 adults with drinks and 5 kids. We would definitely go back and recommend as a great Tex Mex place with great value for money.

“Worst place in Napa”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

Had a meal here whilst on holiday and it was terrible. Mainly the staff and service. We asked what a couple things on the menu were before we ordered and for recommendations and the first waiter didn't know and never returned when she said she'd find out, so we asked someone else and the same thing happened. Orders took forever to arrive, they were wrong, bits were missing. We had to pour all our own drinks. Fine in the UK but everywhere else in Cyprus, they do it for you. We then had to wait 30 minutes when we asked for the bill with no waiters in sight, or ones that ignored you, even when waving in their face. Avoid at all costs.
