We enjoyed excellent burritos - slow cooked beef particularly good and chicken ahiciote interesting. Loved the very spicy blood orange margarita. Lovely Mexican decor with skulls everywhere and sat beneath a shrine to Frida Kahlo and a Mexican man with a moustache who I did not recognise. Staff could not be more helpful and welcoming. Avery enjoyable lunch on a... More

The best Mexican food I've had without a doubt - in particular the chicken and chorizo burritos and quesadillas are amazing. Lovely little restaurant with great decor and plenty of choice with different specials available. Would definitely recommend!

This independent Mexican restaurant has some of the best décor I have ever seen. There are painted skulls wherever you look while every nook and cranny has an interesting (Mexican) feature. The décor alone is worth a visit. The food is very good. I enjoyed the quesillada with Chicken and Mexican chorizo with a really floral Mexican beer that I... More

Tasty Mexican food. I eat here all the time and there is no Mexican better. Go there early to leave your name and number you'll probably need to grab a pint in a pub nearby for 40 minutes so plan ahead if more than 2, it's worth it! Spicy beef enchiladas, corn, hot shots and dark and stormy are well... More

Lunch for four two vegans, all food super in the end, slight mix up with the order one of the vegan dishes came as vegetarian changed in a matter of minutes. Great flavours to all four meals the spicy beef in a bowl is in the photo. Not much on the plates going back to get washed, good sign.

I cannot recommend this place enough. The staff were extremely friendly and the atmosphere was wonderful for a Thursday evening meal with friends. The food was tremendous, tasty, flavoursome and reasonably priced. Superb!

Table of 5 on a Sunday lunch time. I ordered off the specials board, a spicy chargrilled pork burrito, was a little disappointed as it wasn't spicy and it wasn't chargrilled. It was tasty enough but I did think the whole menu was overpriced. Dishes were around £10 for a burrito/taco.

Fabulous lunch at this lovely little Mexican. Have walked past lots of times and finally visited. Will go back. Huge portions. Tasty, fresh chicken wings and burritos. Quirky, colourful Mexican decor.

We walked in at 11.50am on a Tuesday morning and were the first customers. I expected it to stay quiet, but within 15 minutes it was almost full! The menu was really interesting and they had taster salsa dips to check out the heat. All were great, but two a bit too hot for a whimp like me! I ordered... More
