We stayed at the Merriton Serviced Apartments in North Sydney so this was just a short walk from the apartment. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Table water without asking, wonderful Sangria and my friends enjoyed Margaritas. The meals were wonderful. I had the Taco Salad $16 - with Crisp Greens tossed with Lime-Oregano Vinaigrette topped with sliced Chicken,... More

Had lunch here early December with a few of the girls from work. Staff were friendly & helpful. Food was good and reasonably priced. The quesadilla looked amazing. Well presented & delicious according to my friend. Only fault I could find is we wanted more guacamole & sour cream. Must remember to order extra sides next time. Will definitely head... More

Great place that virtually takes you deep into South America and keeps you there till you finish your and move out. Excellent food and people, and there ambience is an icing on the cake. Do not miss the margaritas and my personal favourite - chicken quesadilla Absolutely Had to Happen 😊

I ate here with a group of friends for lunch and we had lots of fun. The food was really good, it looked very home cooked and tasted good. The staff were friendly and helpful, it wasn't too busy so it was great for conversation. I would say however that the interior is in need of a serious update. The... More

My Wife and I had lunch here recently and were surprised at the prices. The nachos was kid sized and disappointing. The Burrito was very tasty. I think they really on large corporate groups. It was noisy. The staff were friendly.

I chose this place for a friends birthday and the owner was very unwelcoming and did not give service for the all you can eat option. We actually saw him visibly be upset when we asked to refill our meat order. He showed us that he was not happy with us ordering more food. I will not return and he... More

My family and I had lunch here this week. The Nachos was $19 and looked like a light snack. I have ordered nachos at many restaurants and this is the smallest serving I've seen. It needed twice the corn chips but maybe they wanted us to buy more. The Burrito was very nice but meals were more expensive for North... More

Had a $25 lunch there and it was just disappointing. Restaurant was dark and dirty, table was sticky all over and hasn't been properly cleaned for a long time. Food served very fast, however tasted blend and not fresh. Order a $3.8 soft drink and the waiter only served one small cup of sprite. No value of money whatsoever. Totally... More
