Been here twice on visits to Perth and would go anywhere else. The food is incredible, the portions are vast, the staff and the atmosphere are just great...... Can't say enough to praise this restaurant! Love it, and will return!

Impressive atmospheric restaurant with free entrees, quick friendly service and good menu of authentic cuisine. Vegetarian options plus Mexican beer menu. Couldn't fault the food or setting. No mole which would be nice. Try the stuffed chilli peppers as a starter. Great find!
