I came to friend’s birthday party. We were small company max 7 people. I came a bit later so all others already had their drinks and starters were ordered. Great. I was sitting there for at least 10 min hoping waitress will notice me. I...could order drink only when she brought starters and I asked her myself before she left. Because she did not notice me at all. We were sharing starters and picking them with fingers and holding food in napkins. There were no plates brought to us. It was very messy eating. We were in the beginning informed that they close at 9pm. So great. We had a plenty of time. She did not offered drinks but managed few times to ask us are we ready to order main course. The feeling was like we were are not welcomed here and please leave. We ordered food. Food was okay. But not like in menu photo. Fajitas were the same as burritos. When we finished the meal we decided to order some desserts. It was 8:20 pm max. When we wanted to order it we got reply kitchen is closed. Every place where I have been, waitress always informed us before kitchen closes and it’s time to order last drinks or food but not here. Less money for the company that night and lost customers forever. And I’m not even mentioning that it was birthday party dinner. If it not company’s policy to bring some small surprise to the birthday person than okay but the service made it all worse. The only good things why I give 2 points this place is that there were tasty cocktails and nice interior.More

(21 July around 830pm) before walking out. how do places that have appalling service stay in business. the girls are probably bright students who dont see waitressing as their future and, understandably, can't be bothered with it. The manager who cam even less be bothered...to recruit interested staff and motivate them really should not be doing the job.More

Quiet place, hidden in the street. Food is good. Cocktails are wonderful and delicious. Only music playlist always is the same 😆. There is smoking area when u can sit and enjoy your time, while eating.

The interior and atmosphere were lovely and suitable, but the food quality was low, compared to pre-Covid19 times - we found some aluminium foil in tacos and the chicken chimichanga was bland, not crispy at all. The food overall tasted like disappointment, really. The fried...jalapeño starter with cheese was really good, though. This used to be a favourite restaurant before Covid-19, not planning to go there anymore. Would not recommend.More

I always really enjoy, when I am in TexMex. Nice atmosphere, yummy food, good choice of drinks. One of the best raw steak, delicious jalapenos filled with cheese 😎 i have tried almost everything from menus in this restaurant since '97 (when it was not...called TexMex). Best place for family, for celebrating and for meetingu with friends or collegues. Really recommend to anyone.More

A little hungry and searching for wash rooms; that's how we landed here. We had a great place outside, but in the shade and left the place well fed and cheerfully. Thanks for a great stay!

Some of the best burgers in town. A nice twist to what I am used to and it gives the food some great taste. I recommend it to everyone.

The food was excellent as well as the service. We celebrated a birthday and once my friend asked for a piece of cake with candles - they brought it for free! Very cozy atmosphere as well. I would recommend salads with mango & shrimps.
