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.

Sometimes you find a place that has delicious food, great service and a cosy setting. This was one of those places. You leave feeling happy. Especially if you have the feed me menu which was really good value for money.

An awesome dinner in a beautiful environment. We had the banquet and the food was varied, tasty and plentiful. We were well catered for with our GF/Coeliac peeps able to eat almost everything on the normal menu. So much food that we took our leftovers...home for more enjoyment the day after! The restaurant set up and decor is well designed to create intimate spaces for all groups which is both comfortable and welcoming. Loved all the plants which helps create a lovely, homely atmosphere.More

We went for a special occasion and the place was family friendly and we sat In a booth The staff were really friendly and helpful There was a wedding on next that the kitchen obviously caters for as well. We have tried lots of Mexican...restaurants and this was great Such a huge range of tacos and you could really taste everything in all the bites we took Children meals were a great size and came with carrot sticks and green beans. The staff threw in an extra taco and a brownie for dessert. The atmosphere was nice and not too noisy. Definitely try this place There's a children's play ground outside but it is a bit rusty and looks like it needs a bit if maintenance. The cactus gardens were great some of the plants must be really old Thanks to the staff what a great nightMore

Travelling through and ended up at Lolitas after a Trip Advisor search to find dinner. Wow, wow, wow!! Everything looked so good so we decided to go with the Sample Menu - premium. Every dish far more than a ‘sample’ and so delicious we ate...the lot until we begged off dessert, almost too full to walk home 😋😋 Our standout favourites - Charred corn, Kingfish Ceviche and Pan seared Baby Octopus ( sooo tender) Lovely service, especially from our server who succinctly explained each dish as it was brought out.

The most amazing authentic Mexican I’ve ever had! We loved every moment, from the welcoming frozen margaritas, the delicious banquet for us adults & yummiest kids meals for the children! Service was also fantastic. Can’t wait to come back next time we’re in town!

A great experience from booking online right through to payment. The venue was well designed for small groups or large. The menu had great, well described options from small to large plates as well as a well priced banquet option, which we went for and...our 13 year old ordered separate dishes. The food was creative, unique and very well executed. The service was impeccable from friendly, organised greeting to descriptive, well paced plate drop despite numerous waitstaff, all knew where we were up to in our meal and didn’t pester us for drinks or leave dirty plates laying around. The price was reasonable given our adventurous ordering. We would definitely return!More

We don’t usually go for Mexican food but Lolita’s was recommended and didn’t disappoint. It was a Sunday and they have an 8 course set menu of the chef’s choice which takes away the hassle of choosing dishes. The food was very tasty, came promptly...and the dishes were varied. Service was friendly and efficient and the waitress explained the composition of each dish. Throw in a special margarita and Mexican beer and overall the experience couldn’t have been better.More

Great Mexican restaurant in a very comfortable setting. Feed Me Sampling Buffet was an excellent price for the food you get. The service was excellent and the meals were full of flavour with many different tastes. They offer options to change up the meals for...those with special dietary requirements. If you don’t want the buffet, they have a large range of meals to chose from. The setting was very cosy with an authentic feel and great for drinks with friends or a meal with family. Definitely recommend for anyone.More

Highly enjoyable dining experience. A lot of original twists on Mexican favourites. The tostadas, the char grilled corn cobs and the grilled octopus were stand outs; but really we ordered two banquets and not one dish disappointed. Of course we finished off with churros, chocolate...dipping sauce and vanilla ice cream. The dinner was a family affair with a range of ages; all palates and appetites were sated and all diners left with a smile on their dial.More

Food was lovely and tasty and the hanging plants felt like you were in a garden. A genuinely lively experience. The menu was a little confusing but once we navigated that all was well. The staff were friendly and helpful.
