First ate here last weekend as a group of seven and was that impressed we booked again for Thursday. Both meals were great. Delicious authentic food, attentive service in a warm cosy atmosphere. Advise booking in advance.

We went for my birthday meal this evening and were not disappointed, we managed to get a table at short notice and am glad we did.

There is a really great atmosphere as the place is small and cosy, the margaritas were excellent and the food was well cooked and extremely tasty. Staff were very friendly and helped my husband and son plan a surprise birthday cake for me.

We cannot fault the place, well done to all involved in running this establishment. Thanks for helping to make my birthday night special on our last night in St Ives.

Without doubt this was the best Mexican meal I’ve ever had other than the one we ate in Mexico itself. All the food was extremely full of flavour (particularly the meat), very well presented and absolutely delicious (we had nachos, burrito, fajitas and the churros to end). The staff were really super friendly and the service prompt. It’s just a shame we are only visiting on holiday and not able to come each week otherwise I think we would become regulars and be a lot poorer. An essential, not to be missed culinary experience!

They managed to accommodate 10 of us in their restaurant which is not the largest around but were still able to bring all the meals out together and all hot, better service than many larger establishments with more staff in the area.
