“Perfect...food, service, margaritas”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

8 days into a two week holiday and we've been here twice. The food is so tasty...and great for vegetarians.

The guacamole comes out fresh ready to mix up at the table. Margaritas are lovely. If you are feeling adventurous try the grilled jalapeños...they have a good kick.

The service and atmosphere are great. Book a table so you are not disappointed.

“Best Mexican”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

It was quite packed and we had to wait 20 minutes but it was worth. The food and mageritas were excellent. The pricing was also fair. The interior was cozy. The stuff was friendly. I will definately come back.

“Still the best fajitas”
Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

A long lunch with an old friend over the best beef and chicken fajitas I've had ...the best way to catch up while enjoying good food and service. Treat yourself and you won't be disappointed.

“Great margarita and guacamole”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Popped into El Tiempo cantina whilst our car was being valeted across the road. House special margarita was great, the guacamole was as you would expect very moorish!
The place was buzzing and staff very friendly. Will definitely go back to have the full works next time!

“good food good service”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Had a really good meal here Saturday at lunch. Weather was nice so the patio was the place to sit. Fajitas are the best in town in my opinion. Service matches the great food.
