Restaurant itself seems in a bit of an odd place (down a lane and then downstairs in a kind of basement area). The waiter we had was very friendly and cheery he definetly added 2 our experience. The food was pretty good but they brought out the mains while we were still in the middle of eating our starter. No... More

Nice decoration but the food was far from real Mexican food. Quesadillas were fine, although the salsa sauce was not spicy at all. Worst tacos ever, completely dry. Pork meat was awful. Don't even think about trying the Margarita cocktails - way too sweet, we couldn't even drink them. Nice service though, nice waiters.

OK the serving staff are satisfactory, but the food was OK and the prices fair. We had the fajitas and the steak and it was served quickly...might have been a little hotter but nothing to worry about, well located right opposite the Barbican.

I haven't had such a bad experience with a waitstaff in a very long time. The waiting time was very long (and there were not that many people), we were not told that the credit card terminal is not working and they are taking only cash, the prices on the menu were different than these on the bill and the...

This was my worst Mexican food experience in a while. Their "nachos" consist of store-bought tortilla chips and brown guacamole. Could not make an enchilada without beans. Food was very obviously frozen.

Ordered another drink with 2 different waiters bu after 15 min it still had not come so we left. The... More
