These Beef Nachos are really tasty, I really love how they add diced Red and Green Capsicum, and their guacamole is amazing, it has a herb taste to it. Would definitely eat here again.

Man Friday is tucked away in an unlikely looking location but we and elderly parents all enjoyed the Mexican cuisine and delightful open air setting. The trio of dips and a shared chicken enchilada was plenty of tasty food for two, with a carafe of...More
