This area suburb of Melbourne is very eclectic and the range of cuisine is exceptional. Using trip advisor as a guide I selected this place and we weren’t disappointed. Fast efficient service with a smile and great tasting food.

We weren't expecting much for a suburbs restaurant, but we were pleasantly surprised. Delicious food, good drinks menu and excellent service. My friend is pregnant and they offered a 'pregnant menu'!! More Spanish then Mexican. Will definitely go back!
