Great Mexican atmosphere with live music and typical Mexican decor. The food was excellent! The wine list is very limited and rather disappointing ... but we had some great margaritas instead!!

A loverly restaurant with very attentive staff. I had the nachos and spicy and sour cream ! Warm nachos and really tasty sauces. The main course I had mixed fajitas for 1, both meats were cooked to perfection, and the collections of salad, beans, rice and fried peppers and onions, everything was fresh and flavoursome. I had the catalana cream... More

Thier cooking is top class and... More

Reading some of the reviews, we can't believe they are for this superb restaurant! This is authentic Mexican cuisine with delicious Margaritas you'd find very hard to beat! We had tortilla chips and a lovely salsa whilst waiting for our Margaritas to arrive, terrific! We ordered Deadly Nachos which were so tasty and nicely spiced, a perfect starter to share.... More

This Mexican is a short walk from the marina and well worth finding. The quality of the food and the service from the owner were great. We sat outside in a covered garden which had a good atmosphere. Great value too. Not to be missed if you like Mexican

Enchanting setting and nice welcome. My food was lovely although some surprise from others in our group at the lack of 'sizzling' skillets. Disappointed to have to pay for additional sour cream which was a bit mean given that the food although reasonable certainly isn't cheap. The Singer was a great touch though and really added to the atmosphere. Could... More
