Arrived half an hour early but this was not a problem. Very warm welcome. The three of us shared a platter for starters and there was plenty of variety and quanitity and it was good quality food. We all had separate main courses. None of us could manage to clean our plates, I'm afraid as the portions were too much for us but again, the quality of the food was excellent. At the end of March I will be booking the restaurant again for my birthday meal with the family!

Excellent little restaurant serving up the finest delights of Mexican dining. I had the beef burrito which was fantastic, nicely seasoned and spiced, with hint of hotness. Churros for dessert, with some excellent little dipping pots. Service was good and very friendly. Would highly recommend.
