Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

10th JUNE 2020 Food was delicious, customer service poor!! They didn't remove empty plates, couldn't smile, ordering seemed to be a chore for the waitress. My daughter even had to walk up to the bar to order our second round of drinks because the staff wouldn't look at us. We are friendly people and tried to engage and show appreciation but the waitresses were unresponsive and unpleasant. Even as it came to the payment, we were going to leave a tip because the food was so good and since the coronavirus we wanted to show our support but the waitresses attitude and comment regarding our due change prompted us not to leave the tip. We highly suggest to the owners that you either reprimand your staff, teach them how to be pleasant and efficient or replace them with more experienced and passionate hospitality people. We are locals and want to come back, but if the service does not pick up we will be telling our friends and family if you want the food - get takeaway or go somewhere else.

We were here for a birthday celebration and couldn’t fault anything. The food was plentiful and delicious, a good variation of heat for those in our group who don’t like it too spicy, the heat was tempered with so much flavor. It was really an excellent Mexican meal. The cocktails were also great, the service was great, we can’t wait to go back!

Let's start with my glass was dirt ( lipstick). The food taste is not bad, it is okay. Portions sizes are tiny. The nachos are poor and you pay extra for beef, guacamole and sour cream and still comes with almost no beans and no beef. Taquitos's taste is actually good but very small portion. Now the biggest point is the waiters, I had never felt so unwelcome in a restaurant in whole my life. My fiancee and I made the order, they didn't look at us. We were being completely ignored by the staff. To make the order we need to call them a few times, the food was ready fast but they drop at table didnt make eye contact again. To pay my fiancee was holding the money and handing to the cashier and she still didnt look at him or me. Summarizing, PLEASE GO TO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

I have never been so shocked by a bill. One of my favourite starters is Nachos and have eaten them all over the world London New York Capetown to name a few. So we ordered two Nachos and a taco. I saw the price of the taco at 27 dollars not thinking that a starter would cost more. Asked if wanted sour cream well of course Nachos always has sour cream and did we want chicken prawn beef. We didn’t want too much so just ordered one main course which was Ok Then the bill 60 dollars for two small bowls of Nachos which you can make for 2 dollars. I’m not one to make a fuss so just paid it. With one of the only times in my life without a tip. So my view is don’t eat there Yes it probably was priced on the menu but I don’t want to spent 10 minutes looking over menu to see if I am being ripped off WHICH I WAS

Turned up at 7.50pm for a 8.15pm booking. Looked in and saw restaurant half empty so went in only to be told that we were too early and could wait outside until 8.15?? We asked if we could stay and have a drink and was told there is a pub across the road? We returned only to have a below par experience. Had 1 drink as we sat and were never asked again. Wait staff were standing in the bar eating with only 1 (tall) lady serving the tables. Food mostly tasted as store bought ingredients. Restaurant was half full for the second sitting again. Note to owner - pub across the road was full, every table full. Once will be more than enough for us, thanks!

Best Mexican I've ever had. Entree ordered the calamari. The most tender, un-rubbery, well cooked calamari/squid I have had anywhere, and I've dined in some pretty posh joints. Nicely spiced chipotle sauce. Bit too hot for my wife but she also agreed the calamari was awesome. Then had chicken tacos. Damn fine deep fried goodness. Not dry, but wonderfully loaded crumbed chicken pieces. Again some of the nicest fried chicken ever encountered. Nice slaw with the same chipotle dressing as the calamari. Good wait staff, polite and knowledgeable. If I had one complaint, it seems their website doesn't work. And nowhere could I find a menu online.

Not a restaurant, just a cocktail bar that serves food to meet licence requirements. If you are looking for a good Mexican meal this place is not for you.

We were at the new East Gosford Restaurant. Absolutely lovely service and fantastic food. It's one of those rare places that understands flavour and heat. The Tacos were absolutely delicious and terrific quantities which allowed several types to be enjoyed without over doing it.

I was shocked to see we had to pay extra for pork/sour cream/Guacamole. The service was terrible and felt completely forgotten at times.

The food was great - go early as it gets noisy - wait staff not knowledgeable or not very helpfull when we asked questions. Young girls may be the reason - either self absorbed or genuinely didn't know how to assist - maybe owners could provide some education

Authentic Mexican restaurant with great flavours! We enjoyed everything we ordered. The staff were hard to get a hold of at times but extremely nice and efficient. I think the small tapas items to share are the best to order! I’ve seen some of the other reviews that were negative and am utterly dumfounded by them? We had a fantastic time and will go back next time we are in the area.
