Had a good family meal here recently. All the food was freshly cooked and to a very good standard. The fajitas are well worth trying and the stone baked pizzas were also very well made. We had young children in our party and although they...More

Lovely evening with friends. Had the chilli & it was great. They have a selection of specials. All reasonably priced. For a place to eat in West Malling it is friendly and food is good value for money.

A party of 9, all very satisfied. We pre-ordered so we didn't have to wait long. The food was amazing and the portions were very generous. The hostess was lovely, very funny!

A good varied selection of meals available but lacking in quality. They're charging top prices for what is basically less than ordinary food. The business card presented to us at the end of the evening says 'MEXICAN FOOD OUR SPECIALTY'. The nachos starter consisted of...More

We have lived in the area since 1998 and I have visited this restaurant only once and my wife not at all! The welcome and service was good and the food (Mexican/Spanish) even better. Will visit again ASAP.
