Excellent rustic, casual restaurant with best soft tacos and margaritas. Lots of interesting choices on the menu and not standard Mexican combinations.

If you like mexican with flair, this place is the whole tamale - great food, drinks, atmosphere - even the pictures on the wall. The staff are great and will help you make some choices if you can't pick.

Loved the yummy Mexican. Duck taco and battered fish taco were awesome and the crickets were a left field hit too. Tequila and mescal cocktails hit the spot as did the virgin hibiscus for the drivers. A cracking night!

A lovely restaurant, great food, cocktails and friendly staff. I recommend the Parrilla/Grill if you want a bit of everything but aren't keen on the Feed Me Menu. Will be back!

Very nice meal - go for the “Feed Me Menu”, don’t have to rack your brains over what to order. Includes dessert. There is plenty to eat and food is delicious. I love the margaritas!

Lucky I was with great friends and was easily distracted by their gossip rather than having to focus too closely on the thick air of chilli in the restaurant which caused numerous coughing fits throughout the evening, or the large bug circling our table or...More
