Wonderful food
We had the nachos and the fajitas and was so yum. The suprise of the evening was the lemon curd dessert. yummey layers of curd and biscuit and marshmellow and other yummy stuff. Heaven

The restaurant was busy and so we waited 15 mins for a table. Great drinks and chips and dips. Both ordered burritos - I was surprised that the veggie option was the same price as the meat options but the main problem was that there was a lot of rice in the burrito. The burrito was large and I couldn't finish mine but not quite how much was filling and how much was rice! We also opted for additional items - these also ended up in the burrito. I'm not really one for fancy pantsy deconstructed dishes but on this occasion I think the rice should be separate.

We loved this restaurant so much we ate on 2 consecutive nights! Upsacale, fresh, and modern cuisine. We enjoyed the house white sangria. My 23 yr old daughter especially loved the tropical flavoring. House salsa, guacamole and chips are great! Loved the pork belly tacos, fish tacos, and the special taco of the day, a vegetarian with cabbage. To end the meal, we especially loved the Churros with caramel sauce, much like dulce de leche. My daughter doesn't like cinnamon and these basked in vanilla sugar. Great to sit in the cafe atmosphere with a restaurant that is first class!

Decided on mexican food after some deliberation and it was a good decision. Great tacos, fajitas, and quesadillas washed down with excellent sangria. Fresh NQ produce reworked into excellent FNQ mexican. Service was very friendly, helpful and professional.
If you like Mexican then you will enjoy it
The pork belly taco is the best I have had in a long time.
Will be vack

I had the vegetarian burrito which was delicious - also nice to see a vegetarian option being thought through to include lentils and other delicious grains/pulses. Hot sauce was awesome. My partner got the Beef Nachos and they looked incredible - art on a plate. Was told they were also some of the most delicious nachos ever!!

Good portion sizes as well and reasonably priced for the location.
