Visited sat 23rd with family - all 3 courses fantastic - tasty, spicy, presentation excellent. To single out - spicy guacamole - best ever tasted and let’s not forget the refried beans - had to fight the brother-in-law for those!! Best meal out for a long time , venue also deserves praise - quirky, colourful and so pleasantly different from ‘currently fashionable’. Will definitely visit again

The service was fine...attended to promptly. Menu I would say was limited. Once order was taken it did not take long to be served. My choice of main was disappointing and this was conveyed to staff. Felt it was bland and not very appealing to the eye. Staff appeared to take my feed back onboard. The restaurant was quite steady with customers. Would I go again...doubtful.

I experienced at first hand the standard of top class Mexican food, delicious, tasty beautifully presented dishes to celebrate Mexico's Independence day on Saturday 16th September. Friendly service, an authentic atmosphere and the best Margaritas I have ever had. How lucky for Montrose and Eastern Scotland that they have now got an exciting new addition to their culinary scene using locally produced ingredients of the best quality combined with authentic knowledge and experience from the Mexican Kitchen. The drinks list is Mexican, including excellent wine, all at reasonable prices. An all round wonderful experience.
