Popped in on Sunday night without a booking. Wide choice on menu. Well presented and tasty food. Only criticism is that it lacks atmosphere. Lighting could be changed. Will definitely return to sample other dishes.

If you like spicy food, but not too spicy then, this Mex restaurant is for you. The Nachos were just perfect, I could have eaten another portion they were just so tasty. The main course of boneless chicken, coleslaw and seasoned fries was wonderful as was the sizzling chicken.

If like me you don't get on too well with chilli, give this place a miss. I went there with friends for a special occasion, but it really was not the place for me.

We like the atmosphere, the Latin music... More

Wow, what a find in Maldon. We were invited by our parents who use the restaurant a lot and wanted to take us. What a lovely warm welcome and great atmosphere on a cold January Sunday lunchtime. Service was superb, nothing too much trouble from a cold glass for the beer to extra tacos for the children. The menu was... More
