Half hour to wait for Waiter with an empty restaurant. The waiter didn't care, ya would think a complimentary drink or something. Food, is plain, stingy. For instance tacos a re tiny without barely any filling or no sauce. Quesdilla comes with barely no filling and not even any sides. Like some salsa or sauce, even taco chips would have... More

We stumbled upon this place looking for an after dinner cocktail and found a couple seats at the bar which as a food and beverage professional is my favourite spot in any bar or restaurant. The bartender was outstanding and really made it a fantastic experience for us. The ambiance that night was just what we were looking for to... More

We were very disappointed when we arrived on a quiet night with several tables and booths empty, only to be refused a table or booth and told we would have to eat at stools at the bar, because "they keep the tables and booths for larger groups". Staff were not friendly or interested in whether we would like to sit... More

First time we visited we had an assortment of tacos and it was really great! Second time we had some beef and chicken dishes that were really mediocre. Even worse were the margaritas. Atmosphere is great. Overall, i would cautiously visit again as it is pricey.

In Northbridge I recommend this Mexican restaurant. The cuisine is quite good with a selection of tacos ($5), tortillas ($12) and other Mexican dishes. The restaurant has also a variety of delicious Tequila-based cocktails ($18). A great place to start your night, good food, drinks and music (songs from the 50s were played when I was there).

This was such a shame. I had found it on perth urban list where it's listed as having $2 tacos Sundays. Three of us rocked up asking if that was right and the really friendly waiter had told us we could get $2 tacos if we got a glass of sangria or beer. We then ordered 500ml sangria to share... More

Great atmosphere and a wide variety of cocktails. The service is also good. Only down fall was the food. It was a little tasteless and was Cleary bulk cooked as we ordered and it all came out within 5 minutes of ordering. Would recommend for drinks and nibbles of guac and tortilla chips which was good.

It promised so much but delivered very little. The ambience was less than relaxed. The seating limited and the music loud and inescapable. The drinks heavily overpriced. The food lacking in quantity and quality. Certainly not value for money
