Myself and a friend visited here for dinner and we had such a lovely time. We opted for lots of appetisers as a tapas style meal rather than a starter and main and all our food was delicious! The staff were all we very welcoming and friendly. After we finished dinner we stayed for over an hour sampling the tasty... More

Visited on a busy night after a few drinks and were welcomed in despite it being late on. The menu always appeals and the food and service was once again fantastic. Value is good at around £50 for two courses each with wine. Definitely worth a visit.

After a warm welcome we were directed to a smart well-lit table in the window and given the lunch menus Complementary soft drinks e.g. lemonade in our case were provided with the meal. The sizeable Chicken Fajita wraps came out with chips filling a separate little metal basket, it was all hot and very tasty… Thus this otherwise light lunch... More

Wonderful Mexican food that is very fairly priced. The strawberry margaritas are delicious, as are the chicken enchiladas! The service is always prompt and courteous; the atmosphere is one of fun and relaxation. I have eaten here on a number of occasions and have never once been disappointed! Enjoy!

The staff were slightly officious and it all felt more formal than friendly. Our side dish was forgotten and had to be asked for. The food was just ok-I make better salsa and guacamole myself, it felt a bit mass produced and processed. The meal was not at all spicy for Mexican food and adding enough of the chilli sauce...

My partner used to come here years ago and recommended it to me. I knew it would be good as soon as I saw the menu. There were lots of things I wanted to try and our lovely waitress was on hand to advise. I couldn't decide between the lamb or the king prawns so she bought me half and... More

This used to be my favourite restaurant in Derby and I loved visiting. Yesterday was the first time I have been in many years. The service remains strong with attentive waiters and front of house. I had the nachos to start and I couldn't believe how small the portion was, for £6 to get 6 pieces of nacho is ridiculous,... More

Lovely clean and fresh looking Mexican restaurant. Food was beautiful.. especially the cancun chicken that I had.. beautiful mild tangy sauce too. My partner had chicken with a lime and tequila sauce which was as equally as delicious. Not usually a fan of Mexican cuisine in the U.K.. usually stick to it when I'm abroad but this place has changed... More

Visited this lovely restaurant with friends on 3/2/17. We are not from Derby and had found this place through trip advisor. What a good find. The staff were attentive and helpful. The food was lovely. I can recommend the fajitas. This place is well worth visiting
