Was highly recommended to me but felt let down by the food. Service was good, quirky looking fun place. I had been told this was original style Mexican, maybe, but I found the food to be lacking flavour or seasoning, no amount of sauces could bring food to life. Do visit if you are after a nice casual night out with friends.

Wonderful littel bar that we frequented a couple of lunchtimes and early evenings for drinks. The lunchtime food was very good and was washed down by some nice cold Bintans. It also popular at night in the large bar area at the back. Good atmosphere and drinks are cheap.

We went to this little restaurant with our family of 4 and another fam of 4 and as our kids are all 6 and under, went about 530pm. It was deserted which was a little concerning but once we were seated and had our drinks, people came streaming in the door and it was soon packed!! Worries aside, we ordered. The kids had nachos and quesadillas which they both devoured! Not covered in cheese and sour cream which was a nice change, could taste the flavours, which were very mild spice for the kids. Ours on the other hand, were nice and spicy (you could choose your spice factor!) It was a nice change from the usual 'covered in creamy cheese sauce' we get at home!! The apple margarita was really refreshing and so tasty!! Great lil cantina!!

Pumps out fresh, tasty, lighter Mexican fare (ie. not cheese ladened Montezuma style gunk). Great as a mid shopping lunch or a casual dinner. Highly recommended.

Grabbed an early dinner here tonight and it was fabulous. The interior is designed so well that automatically the place has great atmosphere and a great vibe. Great music as well! We were served by a man that reminded me of a Quentin Tarantino movie. He was such a great host, chatting away to my three year old son, giving us recommendations of what to eat, and forewarning us of which meals would have too much chilli for my son. Hubby had a chilli beer that was exceptional. Recommend that you try it if you love your beer! Everything that we ate was delicious. Fresh, tasty and well portioned. Not as greasy and oily as other places I have tried. I've read about people complaining of portion sizes, but seriously they are generous for the price and the quality. Absolutely brilliant, will definately be back again. Apparently the late nights are the busiest but don't be put off if you go during the day or early evening if its quiet. Definately worth a visit
