Visited here recently for a catch up with a friend! Lovely little hidden gem in the centre of Perth. We were greeted with miniature frozen cocktails which were lovely! I then had the chicken and chorizo fajitas which were delicious, the portion sizes are so generous! The fajitas came with a selection of dips and wraps etc. Excellent service from... More

6 of us went on a Sunday evening for a birthday celebration...not all of us had been before, the food and service was great. Supported by some decent beer and a mojito..and that was just me! Catered seamlessly for gluten free and vegetarian. Wee downside was the temperature ....but didn't detract from our evening.

I've been here several times, and I will continue to visit regularly. The food is always fresh and perfectly cooked, fantastic flavours, with very generous portions. Usually we have just a main course and occasionally some ice cream because the food is very filling, but my bill has never been over about £45 for two of us, including drinks! Some... More

We ended up at the Mexican after another place had decided to close early, I'm glad that was the case. The value for money here is really good, you get a lot of food for what you pay for. The food is really tasty and the service was lovely. Everything was brought out fairly quickly and well presented. I would... More
