“Great Mexican food and friendly service”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

One of our group of four is not a fan of anything hot so staff scored well when they explained clearly which dishes were spicy/hot/vhot. Attention to detail was very good, food excellent there is something on the menu for everyone. The place is very busy and I understand it has just reopened having changed ownership. We came here earlier this year the food was great then. It is still well worth a visit.

“Great Hot Mexican food”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Mary had the fajitas and as a lover of Mexican food, she said it was one of the best ever. I had chicken enchiladas which i loved. We had a nice bottle of wine and soaked up the great atmosphere.

“mexican majic”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

This cracking restaurant is one of four up the hill from the harbour but not one to be missed. Plenty of choice on the menu and really great food. Add some Mexican beer and friendly quick service for a lovely night out. It's not a big place and this helps the atmosphere.

“Excellent food & service”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

This is not the first time we have visited Emma's and it won't be the last.
The food is quite simply, excellent. Some of the best Mexican food I've ever had. The chimichanga is delicious.
Huge portion sizes and food to suit lots of different tastes. Our teenage daughter was not keen when we first went there in the summer, however she was converted and loves the enchiladas.
If you are looking for somewhere a bit different then please do try Emma's

“Best Mexican I've ever had”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Took a while to find this place in the old town but well worth it. Great setting, lovely staff and excellent food at a very reasonable price. Don't go to the the Mexican restaurants on the main strip who just serve up rubbish, this is proper Mexican food!!!
