Such a cosy interior and the food is really good. The menu is quite large, so there is always something for everybody. It can be really busy at times, but that's a good sign.

While the ambiance, the location and the service are certainly good, the food is not great. Burritos and tortillas buried under salad, old rice, runny guacamole, overall lack of spices and strong flavours typical of the Mexican cuisine. I make a better one myself.

This restaurant is busy and huge, so it seems it would be good food? Well.. The Mexican here leaves a lot to be desired. It's a poor take on American Tex Mex. Flavorless, soupy, just... something missing. They even put French fries on the table!...More

I had a first date here with my current partner, first we had to wait like 25 minutes before getting any menu's. The place itself was kinda nice but the wasps made sure we weren't comfortable. Then the food came and i was really disappointed....More

Ate here on the tank dinner deal. Have eaten here before and was looking forward to going back but was left disappointed. We were picking of a limited menu because of the deal, which I think is also the cinema deal menu. Started off well...More
