The all round experience at this restaurant is amazing. It is owned by a vey loving and gracious Turkish woman who has a passion for healthy food. She supports her staff to be their best. The margarita's are really good and between 5-7 if you order a jug you get free tacos. The food is beautifully presented, healthy and nutritious. I really loved the cerviche and enchiladas. We had some food that was not on the menu such as raw burrito and a lovely raw desert. This is the restaurant we ate in the most at night due to the beautiful surroundings, ambience, food and loving staff. The toilets were really clean which can be rare in some restaurants on the island

Great atmosphere, cocktails and nachos! Service was friendly and efficient. Would recommend! Took us a few days to find it as it’s no longer on the seafront. Now down a little road opposite Susan’s bungalows but only saw it lit up in the dark so keep your eyes peeled!

Tucked away off the beach, the food is great.Beware the massive portions..you will probably only need a starter

We were recommended Mexican Kitchen by some friends who travelled a few years before and were not disappointed. They've moved location from the beach more inland, but the space was lovely and a really cool atmosphere. The staff were great, very attentive and understanding of my dairy intolerance. The food was incredible, fresh fish and amazing toppings- delicious and great portion sizes! We ordered too much food, we would have been set with a few starters between us. The mint lemonade was also good, very strong and zesty.
Definitely check them out if you're not on a tight budget!

We also went to the old location, so don’t do that! We quickly messaged the kitchen on Facebook and they provided us with the new address. The nachos were AMAZING! Highly recommend, lovely restaurant.
