Visited may 2017 and was amazed by the food! I haven't had such good Mexican food since I visited Mexico. Definitely worth a visit!

Chicken with sweetpotatoe chips was ok, but when asked the waitress about wine, her answer was : just came from my Holiday, I don't know. She really had a wrong attitude.

Went here just passing by. Not stood off by interior, menu or staff. Was seated at great table. Received decent food to Good price. Portions were rather large but tasty. Clear restrooms. Would revisit.

Latin American restaurant. Serves food inspired by Latin America. Very delicious food, nice versatile menu and good atmosphere. Quite small place and they don't usually take reservations so be aware of that you might queue the table. Restaurant also serves lunch and is very popular lunch restaurant too. In the summer they have also sunny tables outside. Convenient location next... More

The vegan tofu dish was really delicious! My mother who is a meat eater was regretting she did not take the veg dish! Great drinks also, a little bit pricy though. Really good quality. Highly recommend!

The restaurant is centrally located close to the train station. We overall liked the restaurant which has a good level of Mexican food options. Cuban paella is specifically very good. This place is a good choice for a mid-range lunch.

I wasn't expecting American-style Mexican food, and therefore I wasn't disappointed when that wasn't exactly what I got. However what they do serve is good for what it is -- Mexican-*inspired* food. I had what was something like a carne asada. The meat was cooked and seasoned nicely and the portion size was decent. It staved off the Mexican food... More

Just off the bus square (which is next to the train station) this was a good find. I guess we were just looking for a rest from red meat and we enjoyed a vegetarian and chicken mexican meal. Glasses of wine available as are glasses of great Finish beer

Thank AJ S
