“Very tasteful meals!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

A lot of food on the largest dishes, tasteful mexican food with a touch of the chef's own twist. As a fan of mexican food, I loved the taste. Very friendly staff and an overall good experience. Didn't have more room for dessert unfortunately:)

“AVOID! AVOID!! Terrible terrible excuse of a restaurant”
Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

Left this restaurant 5 mins ago after eating two mouthfuls of my DISGUISTING meal. This was after I sent it back for being cold! Nachos drizzled in oil/grease (unsure which!?) then chicken burrito cold/tasteless and rancid. I Had the chicken option (apparently) but never seen brown chicken!!! When I asked for the bill 1 min after receiving meal I got a pleasant smile followed by the bill and when we left the restaurant to tell the waiter "terrible food, we left the $60 on the table (as wife did'nt want to cause a scene!) he smiled and said "thankyou!"

Mmm great customer service or sarcasm???

Still considering returning to get my $$$ back.

Please please avoid this place at all costs!

“Fills up and empties very quickly as Hearst Castle visitors briefly pop in.”
Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

Staying next door we popped in for cocktails and it was great atmosphere and value for money. Returning later for dinner was very different. Food was very good but it was very quiet, and despite the "open until 1.30pm" sign the doors were locked at 10pm and they were clearly very keen for us to leave.

“blah”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

tacos had no taste, strawberry margarita was also pretty tasteless, the chips and salsa were the only good thing about this place. And it was overpriced.
