In Northbridge I recommend this Mexican restaurant. The cuisine is quite good with a selection of tacos ($5), tortillas ($12) and other Mexican dishes. The restaurant has also a variety of delicious Tequila-based cocktails ($18). A great place to start your night, good food, drinks and music (songs from the 50s were played when I was there).

This was such a shame. I had found it on perth urban list where it's listed as having $2 tacos Sundays. Three of us rocked up asking if that was right and the really friendly waiter had told us we could get $2 tacos if we got a glass of sangria or beer. We then ordered 500ml sangria to share... More

Great atmosphere and a wide variety of cocktails. The service is also good. Only down fall was the food. It was a little tasteless and was Cleary bulk cooked as we ordered and it all came out within 5 minutes of ordering. Would recommend for drinks and nibbles of guac and tortilla chips which was good.

It promised so much but delivered very little. The ambience was less than relaxed. The seating limited and the music loud and inescapable. The drinks heavily overpriced. The food lacking in quantity and quality. Certainly not value for money

We were excited to find a Mexican restaurant in Perth with a high TA rating. But, the excitement quickly disappeared. The $35 shared Margarita amounted to almost 2 glasses and a whole lot of ice. The $10 quesadilla had barely any filling. Give the pork taco a miss. The 'new' pumpkin taco was the saving grace. A total of $70... More

We really enjoyed our night out. Nice drinks and food. You can get lost with all tequilas available, but they always nicely utilised. The food is more a tapas kind of approach. Small portions to share, all very nice. The list has not a huge variety, but the quality of rack pick is warrantied. Ingredients and tastes sometimes mixed in... More
