Quick pit stop on a lovely Saturday afternoon on the quayside. Quick and friendly staff in a lovely little quirky ‘shack’. Lovely with the sun out or a sheltered area to cool down. A little niffed at the ‘no alcohol without a food purchase’ policy...More

From California and have lived in the UK for 10 years and good Mexican food is hard to come by but this place was 100% the exception. Must try very authentic.
