Went here while on a trip to the area and were looking for a fun place to spend the evening - if a lively Mexican restaurant is what you're looking for, this isn't the place to go. First of all the place looks amazing, it's decorated perfectly to fit its theme. Service was quick and friendly and our drinks tasted... More

The food was appalling - none of the food that we ordered had been made in-house. The fajita wraps were out of a packet and so was the guacamole - even the cheese looked like it had been bought pre-grated. I find it really insulting to charge £12.95 for dishes that had been bought in from a supermarket and merely... More

We went in for a quick drink at 7pm on a Thursday night before a meal - and were the only ones in there. Always a worry. Very friendly bar maid.

We were the only guests at 6:30 on a Monday evening and decided on the early bird special. For £ 12.95 each, we each received a starter and main course. The selection is very varied, with a mixture of classic Mexican food, Tex-Mex and non-Mexican. The portions were large and the food was well presented and extremely tasty. Everybody in... More

We visited on a very quiet thursday evening. There were only 3 other tables of people in the restaurant and it was very quiet. There was a slight chill in the restaurant - it could have done with a little warmth. The lady serving us appeared to be the owner - very pleasant and friendly, however she wasn't particularly good... More

Visited on a Saturday night, the restaurant was very quiet but somehow the staff were still unable to cope. It took half an hour for our order to be taken, in this time we weren't even offered a drink. Starters took a further 45 minutes to arrive, and main courses were another 45 minutes. The food was fine, but actual... More

We were the ONLY customers...awkward!!! Starter: OK. Main course: OK. Pudding?..I came especially for the churros but, apparently, the 'chefs, (really!!) had gone so they weren't available. So don't advertise them at lunchtime you *************. Totally gutted. PATHETIC. Don't bother: Ruined my Birthday: thanks

Popped in for our first time on 19th November for lunch. It really was excellent. Not at all a "run of the mill" Mexican, this has excellent and interesting dishes on an inexpensive lunch menu. The chap waiting was very friendly and told us a lot about the place, letting me (a man) in the Ladies to see their infinity... More

I visited with a friend on a Friday evening having booked a table (which I would recommend as it was very busy). Unfortunately it took an hour to be seen to to place our food order... There was a very large 21st birthday party in at the same time, and I think they were struggling to keep up. When the... More
