Okey, I must admit, I've never been to Mexico, but if mexican food tastes like in this restaurant, I have to start making my plans to Mexico. It was really good! The service was also friendly. The only think is that I didn't expected so much meet in the menu. I wouldn't go to the restaurant if I was vegetarian/vegan.... More

Visited it twice and it was quite good both times. The food is nice, but I think the best of this restaurant is the service. If you go in weekend or high season in summer probably you should book in advance. they also invite you to a drink after eating, we were invited to a chocolate tequila shot, which was... More

Visited here last year with family for a birthday celebration. Good food, good wine, good service. Visited again in January with two friends and their 9-month-old baby. Food was good but not exciting. Friendly staff.

Disgusting food. Terrible Quality. The Cooking Oil has a bad dirty flavour. Kitchen must not be clean. My Takeaway Order was incorrect - I could not eat any of it. Beef & Chorizo in an only chicken/cheese chimichanga? Very disappointed. Expensive also. Stay away from this poor excuse of a Mexican restaurant. If you are going there because they give... More

The food is good but not very spicy. The restaurant is decorated in an almost "over-mexican" style but it's quite endearing. We ordered fajitas which were plentyfull. I could recommend it as a place to have lunch if you're close-by.
