Very nice restaurant service and food both excellent we have been going since it opened and watched it get busier and busier and it's nice to see a small independent restaurant doing well .

    Lovely range of drinks. The nachos we had were so tasty. I don’t usually like guacamole but I loved it at this place! The tacos had flavour upon flavour and the whole experience was just 5 star!

    Brilliant service, cocktails and food, staff were lovely and particularly helpful with my 94 year old grandad. Can’t recommend enough.

  • (((** 24 May 2019 by Paul from Essex

    Food was good (second time visiting here) but service was terrible; everything was too much trouble for the moody waitress, who actually rolled her eyes at us more than once following a couple of simple and wholly reasonable requests. Sadly a very poor experience service wise which let down the overall meal and the restaurant. We didn’t even get offered dessert as it turned out that the restaurant was closing at 9.30 (although no-one told us this, we figured out ourselves they’d stopped serving food earlier than expected) as opposed to the website which clearly says 10.30 close for a Thursday, so the website is incorrect. Questionable that we will ever return here following this visit.

    One of the best Mexican restaurants I have been to. The service is great and the food is delicious. One of my favourite places to dine in the area.
