I guess it is unfair to comment on the food as I didn't have any. For the first time, I left before I had an order taken. It can't be bad as the place was packed and I feel really old saying this, but it...More

Halfway through my meal I witnessed a completely drunk and incapacitated man vomiting all over his plate and table in front of me. Absolutely outrageous that he and his group were allowed in, let alone served drinks at the bar. I know this isn't entirely...More

This restaurant is popular with families and certainly at weekends bookings are essential,. The menu includes a good selection of popular Mexican foods and flavours eg burritos, enchiladas,Fajitos, and of course tacos.Servins are generous and a children's menu is available.

Our group had never had Mexican food before, we thought it was delicious overall and we enjoyed it very much. One thing though was some the dips in the mixed platter needed some more seasoning, otherwise it was great.

I really liked the atmosphere of this place. I recommend getting a table near the windows upstairs for the people watching. I had probably the best chicken quesadilla I've ever eaten there; SO GOOD. Highly recommend.
