Lovely cocktails but microwaved tasteless food. Staff were helpful though and friendly.. Food was all cooked in the same sauce with the same Mexican chicken. Wouldn't come back.

Our margaritas go down very well with diners, they are our top selling cocktail (as you might have guessed). As far as feedback from our American clientele on them, we've never had any complaints :)
