Came upon this place by accident and decided to try it out, and were we pleased we did. Plain inside but that's ok, staff very helpful and food just excellent. Good choice of both Mexican/Turkish style along with steaks, fish and burgers. Portions very generous, service very quick and prices, especially for wine, very reasonable. Choice of exotic cocktails, the... More

A different look on the outside and definitely cleaner on the inside. More a spanish feel than mexican these days though. Definitly could do with 'dressing' the walls a little to represent the mexican and spanish feel. Staff are great and you can tell they are family owned. Very pleasant and chatty even after they had been paid! Kids menu... More

We ate here in 2012 and it was incredible! Proper Mexican food for stupidly cheap. We even remembered what we had (3 bean enchiladas and a rack of ribs with a beautiful jack daniels sauce). The decor used to be fun, colourful- properly Mexican themed! Unfortunately these days its very different. The pictures on TA are not up to date.... More

Second time we've been with new owners (first time we ended up as gatecrashers for grand reopening). This place might be under new ownership but the quality of food and standard of service is absolutely brilliant. Really enjoyed our meals tonight. Well worth a visit and it don't break the bank

They were smothered in melted cheddar cheese with olives! Half way through scraping off the cheese and picking at the nachos a waitress plonked a main dish of... More

The food was delicious as was the wine. The place isn't anything fancy and could do with a majorly refurbishment but the food certainly made up for what the place lacked in style. Staff were very pleasant and great with the kids. The bill was very reasonable too. All in all a lovely night. Will definitely be back .
