Heard a lot about this place being frequented by expats and peace corps types. Apprently it parties on until late. On the Sunday afternoon I was there, it was quiet, but weather great so sat under the tree drinking Mosi. Some other patrons arrived, tried the Nacho's and salsa, but did't like it. She said it was too hot. After they moved off, I sneaked a taste, salsa was fine, if cold and too watery for my taste. Ordered the Natchos with a cheese and chillie sauce. Natchos freshly made and cheese sauce certainly had a bite. Substantial serving and I certainly would,'t be able to fit a main in after. Saw mains of enchilidas and steak coming to aforementioned table who weren't initially happy. It looked fabulous and they raved about it. If I just had a few mates here right now.....Monday morning would be a haze!!!! Service good, beers cold and for Lusaka prices, pretty reasonable. Will see me again!!!

Have gone for parties and salsa lessons. The drinks and service have improved with new management. The whole grain chips are to die for. The salsa lessons are excellent. The location is hard to find.

You must give them their due (hence the 4 out of 5) as it is a training institute for restaurant staff and chefs. Had run out of a lot of stuff...

Good margaritas if pricey. But food is cold and soggy and tasteless.

The restaurant is about 5 minutes from Arcades shopping center when going by car. One can sit outside under a big tree, or under a roofed area with 2 sides open, or inside near the bar. The kitchen is open so you may watch how your dish is prepared. Until mid 2011 the review ratings were excellent and thereafter the ratings went down. So when I went there for the first time in March 2012, I was a bit apprehensive but the food I ordered was excellent, fajitas, very succulent pieces of chicken served with freshly prepared tortillas, beans, tomato salad and rice (I didn't like the rice, probably spoiled by the high quality Thai rice). When I returned 1 week later with a colleague the dishes we ordered tasted excellent again. So I inquired what had happened and was told that the Mexican owner had personal problems and neglected the restaurant which in turn affected the staff and the quality of food. In my opinion the new manager succeeded in enforcing good cooking again. The portions are generous, the prices are average. Service is efficient and friendly.
