We popped in for coffee and liked the look of the food that was being served so returned later for dinner. It was happy hour when we returned (Frozen cocktails, beer and wine) so we took full advantage! We enjoyed the cocktails but didn't enjoy the wine which tasted cheap. The food however was delicious and plentiful. The service was... More

Lovely staff here - very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Had my 4 year old and 7 month old with us. 4 year old loved the cheese and ham quesadillas :) maybe a little expensive for what it was (we shared pok belly fajitas) but it was good quality and very tasty.

Came here randomly on Easter Monday for lunch. Crowded with good vibe. Thought the menu was extensive - The usual main mexican food you can expect of course plus more. 3 of us weren't really hungry at that time so ordered duck salad and seafood platter (appetizer) for lunch and they were decent. The whole time we saw them bringing... More

Without fail, the food here is uniformly good. Service is always excellent. I do wish they would refresh the menu occasionally though.

I've visited here many a time and it is a great little independent restaurant in canterbury. We took friends who had never visited and they were very impressed, the service etc is good as you would like, but the reason the restaurant is such a winner is the variety of food on the menu. It is a Mexican with a... More

The Mexican menu is varied, a great selection of starters and mains catering for all dietary requirements.
