After my review "beware of 'Australian' beef" of 18 December '20 had been published, i visited the Viva place about 10 days later for a draft beer... but was totally ignored although maybe only 25% of the tables were busy. luckily, there are so many...friendly places here in sr to offer fresh & cool draft beer for 50 cts. cheers! ...or cheerio!...or 'iHasta la vista!More

The price is right at this Mexican place thanks to a great discount they are offering during covid times. We got margaritas on the rocks for 1.50 and they weren’t half bad! I had the enchiladas and my husband and little daughter shared the quesadillas....The service was friendly and prompt! We also shared the taquitos. The salsa served with the dishes was pleasantly spicy! Everything was yummy!More

having eaten there 3 times before, i decided to order a more expensive dish on 12/18/20. ...an australian beef steak., medium-rare.... but what a flop! hard, full of white tendons....bland sauce. half of the steak returned into the plate, too tough to chew [still have...my own teeth] ...it was local beef sold for an aussie steak. if you don't like cigarette smoke, be careful with the choice of your seats...to prevent you from changing the table during the meal. bottom line: visit the place only if you like old smoking farang expats...& being cheaten with beef meats.More

The food is always disappointing but I always find myself hungry enough when I'm in there to order. Compared to other Mexican/ Tex Mex in town here isn't your best option. But in terms of a venue, the staff are always welcoming and helpful- they...let you play your own music (as long as it's good) and yeah...$1.50 cocktails!More

I recently visited this restaurant. There was a sign outside saying "Food Discount 30%." I ordered a fried banana split. They refused to give the discount, claiming this was not food. Bananas are food. The batter the bananas were fried in are food. Ice cream...is food. I won't be returning.More

Went here twice, once for drinks only and once for a meal and both times service was very efficient. The Mexican food was very nice and it was great just sitting watching the world go by.

Stopped by with friends after meal for "quiet drink" away from the cacophony in Pub Street! Girls had margaritas and I had beer and were pleasantly surprised when found still at happy hour half price! Pleasant spot but can't comment on food

This is the second Mexican restaurant we visited and this one is not the best. The 1.50 margarita was not great, the 1.50 tacos were blah and the veg burrito was uninspiring.
