Did 3 meals there with various colleagues and they were all pleased with the menu, food quality and service. Give it a try, I doubt you will be disappointed and if you are, it won't cost you a much in the end.

Smiling staff and great food. The interiors are a bit sad but don't let that deter you. You won't be disappointed!

Amazing food and friendly staff. We had margaritas and so much food. Everything was really tasty and the service couldn't be faulted.

Everything we ordered was great, and we ate a lot! We had a couple of starters to share, for mains I had fish tacos which were different to what I'm used to (which is hake in batter) but amazing, the rest had chimichangas and quesadillas which they loved. The drinks menu is quite impressive, and would definitely go back on... More

Quaint little place on Slipway Road next to the a grocery story. Great ambiance with outdoor seating and Mexican tunes playing. The food really did justice to the restaurant's name. We tried the Soft tacos, Fajitas, Quesadillas and Enchiladas. All were great. Highly recommend the corn option instead of flour. The beef fillet tacos and beef Quesadilla were my favorite.... More

We ordered tacos, empanadas, and burrito to share between three people. Tacos and empandas were authentic and delicious! Burrito was also great. It's small inside, but cozy and service was a bit slow, but very friendly. Good mixed drinks as well.

If it is your first time eating here, you may be a bit apprehensive on sight of the entrance. It's ok, take a step through the door and the place casts away its dingy cover and opens up into a nice airy dining room and a bar placed at the back. I had never eaten Mexican food before, so I... More

Honestly I was skeptical when I walked by a MEXICAN restaurant halfway around the world from it's inspiration. However, after having receiving several unsolicited recommendations about the place, I figured I give it a try. While the place looks unassuming from the street, it opens up into a large dining room and bar in the back. The service, drinks (margaritas)... More
