A bit pricy but very good margaritas! We had the lemon ones. Had the charros beans, tostadas de stun, sopa de tortilla, enchiladas verdes and churros. Everything was delicious and authentic. Mind that most dishes are hot and spicy but excellent. Very kind and lovely staff of waiters. Take into account that if you're late for more than 15 minutes,... More

We stumbled upon this place after a long evening out in London, the service was very good and the food was delicious! They make the Guacamole fresh at your table which was a real treat! It was reasonably priced especially considering it's so central, we paid under £20 each for food and drinks. Another plus point for me was the... More

Stopped here for lunch on our way to the theatre. The staff were very friendly and helpful with the menu. A burrito plus side dish for £9.60 was very tasty and filling. Would definitely visit again.

Had a good lunch. Friendly staff, good service. The food is not too shabby either. Had the Gringas with the avocado salad and it was perfectly good. My companion also had the Gringas but with soup. Only minor grumble was the portion size was perhaps a bit small but we were very hungry and could have eaten more! Enjoyed the... More

Lucky we booked as was very busy and later had a a large queue building. Good menu with good choices for veggies. Food order got a little mixed up. Starter didn't arrive but mains did. We asked about the starter and it arrived later. Lots of tables in a small area so no privacy. Food wasn't as plentiful as other... More

An amazing restaurant just off the strand. We always eat here when we're in London for the theatre. Authentic Mexican food, and very reasonably priced for the location. Well worth visiting!

A very busy, but very efficient place in a convenient position next to Charing Cross. We like Mexican food and this place had a wide selection. Starters of tortilla's and scratchings--both with spicy dips were excellent and reasonably priced. After that we both had different burrito's and a couple of sides. Don't know if there were sweets on the menu... More

I am afraid I can't wax lyrical about this place as my tacos were pretty tasteless. What could have been a nice carnita turned out to be a very bland, poorly seasoned and uninspiring mix, very expensive too for two helpings that you could have almost lifted off the plate with a pair of tweezers. There was nothing wrong with... More

Lovely food in pleasant surroundings. Would be a 5 if service charge hadn't been added to final bill.

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
